it CAN take anything up to 24hrs. Usually much shorter than that tho. Often a few minutes or a couple of hours

I was under the impression from the message on the control panel within my account, that if its after 10pm then it takes few hours due to customer service closing, but in the at this time should it stil take 24hrs?

The post only says it CAN take 24 hours but as you have activated well before 10pm I would expect it to be around a few mins to a few hours. But if there are any issues please wait the full 24 hours before contacting support. Remember to keep rebooting your phone when you test it to see if the sim is active yet.

I hope it don't take a few hours, I am relying on this now, As ive just stopped my vodafone sim only deal to try this for a month. if activating the sim card really takes this long, then maybe this was a bad choice.
