Firstly – YAY and welcome! We’re so pleased you’re joining us, we’ll have a great time together. If you purchased your SIM in one of our stores you’ll already have it to hand. If you ordered your SIM online it’ll be winging its way to you in the post!
Setting your phone up is mega easy to do, provided it’s unlocked.
Your SIM has 3 different size options (standard, micro and nano). Push out the correct SIM size, pop it in your handset and turn it on.
Standard SIM – the biggest size
Micro SIM – the middle size
Nano SIM – the smallest size
Ooops – I popped the wrong SIM
That’s cool, they fit back inside each other too. Just pop it back in and go again!
Once you’ve switched on, your handset will prompt you to connect to WiFi to complete the set up. Step through the set-up wizard on-screen.
When you’re done, your phone will show the main screen. This means it’s ready to start being used. If you’ve activated your SIM you’re good to go!
Erm…how do I activate?
Go here and follow the on-screen instruction for activation and you’re done!
We’ll text you once activation has been successful. It's usually immediate and in some instances it can take up to 2 hours.
If you haven’t got signal (more than 2 hours after you’ve completed activation), you might need to restart your device.
I want to keep my old number
You can so do this!
Transferring your number over is called ‘porting’. You need to request something called a ‘PAC’ code from your previous network provider. Just text PAC to 65075.
Once you have your PAC code visit your dashboard and scroll down to the bottom. Enter your code and the number you want to bring over to Superdrug Mobile 😊
Wow! Is that it?
Hold up, just one more step...
You need to change your APN settings in order to use your data. This is easy! Just go to Settings - Mobile Data - Mobile Data Options - Mobile Data Settings, and then change the APN to "superdrug.net".
