But nothing strange has happened to my number, no spam etc.
Received a sim from RWG following an email to them giving just my name and address.
Sim worked first time although I was a little impatient waiting for my activation email as I hadn't even set up my email account on the phone yet!.
I rang RWG on the number given on their letter and it was immediately answered by a real person who said they would get the team to resend the email. New email arrived a minute later and now I am in business. A free sim with 50 minutes or 50 texts and 250Mb of data (which won't matter as I won't deliberately use any data and the phone sits on my desk connected to WiFi in case the phone uses it without me knowing)
Now I can give that mobile number to PayPal and not have to worry about them giving it out to everyone who asks for it
Thanks for the friendly advice here. RWG is the way to go.
(Much better than some of the programming forums I use where the first response to a question is often rudeness and "why don't you look at some of the previous responses before asking here")
