Unlike some network carriers, UK carrier 02 does not require you to activate your Pay-As-You-Go Subscriber Identity Modules (SIM Card) as it comes pre-activated when you buy it. However, it's worth registering it so that you can take advantage of special packages geared to your usage requirements that may save you money. Examples include an unlimited free text bundle. Once you've registered the SIM card, you can also top it off online with a bank card and see recent activity.
