7. Activation of your sim card

After 2-3 working days, you will have received your new O2 sim card by mail. In that letter, O2 will tell you to go to o2.de/freischalten to activate your sim card and identify yourself. You will be redirected to this page and you can select “English” on the top right:

If you need to modify your contact data, you can do that here. Note that the contact data that you provided when ordering the sim card needs to be exactly the same as in your passport or ID.

You can identify yourself online (via Video-Chat) or offline (Post-Ident). We recommend to use the video chat option, because it is a lot faster and easier. If you don’t have a webcam, you need to use the Post-Ident option.

WebID or Post-Ident

You will be directed to the online identification service. Just follow the provided instructions.

In case you get an error message that something went wrong, you can also call the O2 registration hotline: 0800 55 22 26 6 (free of charge)

    Hi, I ordered an o2 Sim 2 days ago and they confirmed my order. The email was saying also that they were going to text me when my order was been sent. Do you know how long does usually take to receive an o2 Sim at home?
