How long does it to activare a PAYG SIM?
I bought one ~7hrs ago in a Vodafone shop and the salesman said it would be active in about 20 minutes - it's not active yet.
Solved! See best answer

Is it a replacement sim mate?

Oh i see, here in ireland all sims are already active, you just need to top up to enjoy the service. What I would advise you doing is use web chat, the links below. An agent will be able to assist you in getting this sorted there.

Three days and counting... it finally got activated as I was typing this reply.
If you have an online account with Vodafone, and are swapping from an old SIM to a new one or simply installing a new SIM, you can do this online. Log in, go to My Account: My Device: Activate new SIM.
Be prepared to wait a couple of hours and to power you phone off, take out and reinsert your battery and SIM, and power on again before it finally activates.
