Replacement sim

So have been currently overseas for 2 months and have lost my sim. 

If I get a replacement sim, does anybody know if sms’s From the last 2 months will show on the new sim? 

 

The old sim hasn’t been in a phone for it to get service...

Re: Replacement sim

SMSs can have a delayed delivery (the system assumes that at times people have their phone off or are out of reception). However after a few days most will be recorded as undelivered and binned. So no, its unlikely you'll get many of the messages in that 2 month period.

Re: Replacement sim

You’re right Pete, ended up getting my replacement sim this morning and the only message that came through was from yesterday😢

Re: Replacement sim

Sorry to hear. The system is being revamped same you could also use apps like what's app but that doesn't help you now.
