What happens to a phone number that was never activated?

I tried to retrieve a phone number that I had which was part of a collection of four PAYG sims with O2 originally. However it seems that is not possible as the numbers were never activated.

Is it possible to get a number that was never activated? What happens to unused numbers?

Recycled to new sims to possibly not be used again.

Got to be a better way of doing it really. Must be so many numbers just sat in shops.

SIM cards expire after certain date, if card is not activated. Some SIM cards have a date on them when latest they should be activated.
