I have recieved a sim through my work, at a supermarket, which doesn't yet seem to work.

Am I the only one? Any tips on perhaps activating it? I chucked it in my iPhone ans my LG KS360 but no luck.

Perhaps being a checkout operator does have it's perks lol.

They were handing them out today at one of the supermarkets I am contracted to, according to the manager I spoke with they can not be activated until launch time.

New World. Was given a promotional bag with other items such as a drink bottle and candy.

When exactly is the launch? The 1st?

Only partners and staff would have sims active pre-launch. Expect the rest to suddenly turn on on the launch date.

That's right. No secret sauce in getting that SIM working.

Your company will get an alert at launch which will let them know that you can now pop that SIM into your GSM phone and enjoy the 2degrees network.



Cheers!

Jonomayo: Am I the only one?

Nope, as mentioned they are now handing more of these bags out. I've had mine a little over 2 weeks now, and im drinking from the drink bottle right now heh (tip: baking soda overnight removes the plastic smell)

My ones from DSE came today - in another massive box with bags of air - a trackpack would have done the job - the padding would have done nothing since they were sitting on the bottom of the box...

the boxbags of airbags of air
