How long does it take for my prepaid service to activate? I just registered it online and it went through successfully, but once I put the SIM card in the phone it says there's no service.

Shouldn't take more than an hour :) You might try to switch off the phone again, take out the SIM for a minute and then put it all back together. Did that solve your problem?
yes it works that way.thanks!

Reboot the phone as per Sophia above.

Tech support is supposed to be free. Tell them they may have sold you a bad SIM and you would like a tech to check it out and make sure your activation has gone through properly on their end.
