Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.
What do you mean by register. Have you bought this sim just now?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no it came with the phone its just that there were not many instructions with it
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.
Then yes, you need to register this sim card. It is not yet activated and that is why you cannot make calls yet.You'll need to activate it online by registering or logging into your account at virginmobile.co.uk/youraccount and select Plan and Device.
