What is a replacement SIM and how long does it take to activate?

A replacement SIM lets you move your number to a new SIM if your old SIM is lost, stolen or damaged, or if you need a different size SIM for your new device. 

A replacement SIM can take up to 24 hours to activate in busy periods, however it's usually much quicker.
