Activate your Prepaid service

Learn how to activate your Prepaid service.


Before you start

You'll need the following before you get started:

  • Your phone's serial number (sometimes referred to as IMEI). To find your phone's IMEI, dial *#06# and then send the call.
  • Activation code
  • Prepaid SIM card


If you're using an iPhone, the SIM card is already in your phone. If you don't have the original box the phone was packaged in, you can get the phone serial number by dialing *#06# from the keypad on the phone you want to activate.
