I ordered a new sim two weeks ago, it arrived 2days later
My guess is the post is fine!
Could it have been delivered to the wrong address?
Maybe ask neighbours either side?

Don't have any problems with RM to report. Quite the opposite, recently have been very reliable and even do collections at very short notice

Have you actually contacted Royal Mail to find out why your items are not arriving?

If so, what did they say?

And are you sure your sim card is being posted to the correct address?

Hi

Yes we are 101% sure about the address..and yes Sue i did contact royal mail with all details. unfortunately they got back to me with one of those generic mail saying that ..cause of covid still some areas of uk are effected by shortage of staff etc etc..
possibly i should go post office..

We get a 'letter post' delivery once a week, still missing post from the 26 March.

Replacement sim card delivered 4 weeks after it was sent...

Sorry to hear but in a sense there is some positive there..at least i m not the only one..

I find it hard to get to speak with postman as i m often away but i think i better have a chat with him to start.
eventually i ll have urgent things sent to some friends elsewhere..

Is anyone having issues with post? I live on the top end of Barry Road and haven?t seen the postie for two days. I?ve also been waiting over 2 weeks for a replacement debit card. Don?t want to cancel it and get another one in case it turns up today/tomorrow/Saturday etc?

The only issue I've had was on Wednesday when I received post at 6pm.

You don't seem to have much of a life if you are posting crap like this and your previous post at four in the morning.

This is a thread about problems with Royal Mail. If you don't like it, why not go and read something else?

Post is very clearly marked for either 20 or 20A. But post for 20 regulary goes to 20A and vica versa.
When we had a regular posty (s)he knew which house was which. But the one we had earlier in the week didnt seem capable of reading a house number.

> oh dear go and find something more important to work about

So a new passport/ bank card / bank statements / freedom pass going to the wrong house is not important.

Been waiting 2 weeks on something being delivered. I have a tracking no, but there is no tracking information, since they haven't tried to deliver it...

Maybe they are using a no 12 bus to get it from the sorting office in Peckham to here 🤔
