    I recently lost my phone with an O2 on-line SIM. This was on a SIM only
    contract. A bar on incoming and outgoing calls was placed on the SIM. I
    have received a replacement SIM and called customer services to activate
    it/remove the bar. Nearly 24 hours later it is still not working.

    How long should it take to activate?

    I didn't think to ask when I phoned and the information wasn't offered. I
    haven't rung back because they use a 0870 call-centre number (=not cheap)
    and from experience will keep me on hold for 10-15 minutes before
    transfering me to a real person. I posted the question here since, if
    others' experience is that it usually takes 48 hours, then I would be
    wasting my time & money calling.

    Fair enough! Just the reason I switched to Virgin.

    Andrew, in future use http://www.saynoto0870.com for any company with an
    expensive number.

    There is, in fact, 0800 numbers for o2, in which you could ask to get passed
    through to the relevant department. Choose your number carefully though,
    some of the o2 ones are for carphone warehouse only etc; but a few are good
    for you!

    OK, maybe 'not cheap' is being a bit of an exaggeration. However, it's more
    than the free (inclusive) for an 01 number!
