        I had similar issue.


        I purchase a sim card and a prepaid mobile internet data plan online at After insertion of the sim card, I cannot access the internet. In addition, when I called 611,  I was told my account is "inactive", "under review". My newly selected phone number was not able to be recognized either (so I couldn't link it to my T-mobile account).


        Can anyone help me to fix this issue?
