if your sim isn't activated you gotta Log into your Self Serve account, click on Mobile Phone > Change Phone > Enter serial number of new sim card.

What do you mean you can't activate? Turn off the phone, remove the card, activate it in Self Serve and put it back.

The same thing is happening to me right now! And I don't know what to do ... I put my SIM card in my iPhone before activating it, and went on the website to activate it but it's not activating! I even turned my phone on and off, aswell as whipped of the SIM card with a cloth. It still isn't working and I don't know what to do ?

Hi Celeste.

Is this a new activation or are you trying to activate a new sim card on your existing Prepaid account? Can you also tell us what error message you're getting? Thank you.
