Why does it take so long to activate a sim card

Answered

Hi,

 

I just received my Nokia Lumia 920 and called up to have my new sim activated as my old sim wasn't a nano sim card and was told it will take between 5-24 hours for the sim to be activated.

 

I am an existing telstra business customer, I ordered a new phone on an existing phone number with Telstra. I'm not really fussed about it taking so long, I'm just curious as to why it could take so long for something that seems so trivial. 

 

Thanks.

If you are a business customer, it should be instant.

 

Check with LiveChat perhaps?
