Can you wait 3 weeks to put in a newly activated PAYG SIM and data pack?

Hello, I just recieved a new PAYG SIM card and £15 data pack from one of your shops. The salesperson activated the SIM card, but I have not yet put it in the 4GEE device. Can I wait 3-4 weeks before putting it into my device, or has the 30 day period already started?

 

Thanks,

David

PAYG SIMs don't need activating. So I can't think what the salesman could have done.

 

The pack won't start till you make your 1st call, text or go on the Net.

When PAYG sims are bought in store, the activation process puts a pending pack onto the account, and adds the top-up.

Yes, as you'd expect as that's what you are buying. More like configuring it to your order rather than activating it,
