If I buy a new sim card, could I delay its activation? If so, by how long? 

I am asking because I found a deal I like from iD Mobile and I don’t want it to disappear but I’ll only be able to start paying for it after 3 months.

Hi @Fushall 

 

I’m sorry we are unable to delay the activation. Your SIM and contract will activate, as soon as your order has been accepted and dispatched.

I have received a new Sim card and phone, on a new account - sim was due to activate on 17 Feb, but as phone came early would like to activate today (11 Feb). Website say “pop it into your handset and you're good to go” - but it doesn’t; if I go to activation page it does not recognise my phone number. How do I activate sim

Hi @Terry Moore,

 

Have you tried using the SIM activation page on a different device or browser?

Hi @Somamarya 

Sorry to hear you can’t get a signal on your SIM. 

Have you recently changed your SIM at all? If so, it will likely need to be activated, you can do this via your app by following the below steps; 

  1. Select “Services” from the bottom of your dashboard
  2. Select “Activate my SIM”
  3. Either select “Scan my SIM barcode”, or enter SIM number manually
  4. If you entered the code manually, click the “activate your SIM” button

I hope this helps. 

 

thanks,

updated my phone from MotoE5 to Galaxy A20e, input my new SIM on Tuesday, still awaiting the activation text. I wish to keep my old number and transfer my contact information.

At the moment I cannot ring out on either my new phone or old one.

I have already powered down both phones and restarted them but with no success.
