Switching SIM card from old phone to new one

I bought a new unlocked sim free iphone from apple's website. I tried taking the sim from my old phone and putting it into the new one and activating it online but that didn't work. I tried calling virginmobile but I have to call from a different phone and I only have one.

 

What to do?

Why are existing customers not allowed to activate their own devices?
