Email for activating a phone? They should have done that in store.

Prepaid or monthly (postpaid)

If you got this with a Tab then it should be instant activation. Where did you buy your phone? Do you have paper work? Did the rep test everything out to make sure it's working? (obviously not)

I would try removing the SIM card for about a minute and try again. Make sure Airplane mode isn't on and you have 3G enabled.

You mentioned phone in the description.

Almost sounds like you might have been the victim of fraud... please answer Jonathan's questions, Gorkem, where did you buy the phone (what store) and what plan did you pick?

It's not fake if you got it from the koodo kiosk at eaton centre. Also gorkem, you can activate your sim online using self serve. Also You'll most likely have to wait until the system maintenance is done

You should have been able to place a call, text, and use data before even leaving the kiosk. This guy didn't do his job properly.

If he meant the registration e-mail for Self Serve then that's a bit more understandable and a different issue altogether, but postpaid phone service is nearly instant.

Have you ensured 3G is on under the cellular settings? Have you tried toggling Airplane mode? Do those things for me and update us, please. :)
