My phone doesnt work

I have activated my SIM and and $45 payment voucher, and I recieved an email welcoming me to Public Mobile, saying that my SIM has been activated.

 

When I insert the SIM into my phone, however I dont get any network and cant make calls texts or use data. I also cant access the mobile network settings in my phone's setting section, as all the options are blocked. 

 

I tried to ask moderators a few days ago but still no response. Can anyone offer any advice?

 

This is the second PM SIM I am activating with the same email address, as I lost my old one, could that be the problem?

Hi I guessing you have been into the selfserve account portion of your account. Your account is active you have checked that the sim numbers match on sin and account.

Have you changed the sim number from old to new one. If this is done try the lost found phone trick. Report phone lost wait 10 min log back in and report found this will some time complete the configuration of the sim card and reactivate the account.

Give us some more detail good luck Cheers Lemew

What make is your phone and what version of software

Wait, so you lost your sim card and you activated another line? Why? You could've just changed the sim card number in your existing account unless you had a reason to open another brand new line instead of keeping the existing account. 

 

Anyways, is your phone unlocked? Have you tried the sim in any other phone?

PM account can only have one phone number.  Each account must have separate email address.  Therefore, you cannot activate another phone number on the same account unless your previous account was canceled.

 

Can you still login to your old account?

Re: My phone doesnt work

I can't log in to my account, at all, old or new. I get a message saying "login attempt failed" and if I try to change my password, I go to an error screen.

 

I tried activating a new account with a different email address, but I am told that my account has already been activated...

I am unable to log into my account,so can't check that SIM is the same.

 

My phone is Huawei p9 lite VNS L31.

 

I have recieved a reply from a mod and and gave them some more detail. I'll wait for their next reply before trying the lost phone trick.

 

Thanks for your message ☺

Re: My phone doesnt work

I didn't realise I could change the SIM card number in my old account 😦. Would have saved me a lot of time and hassle...

Unfortunately, you've sent the system into meltdown by trying to activate a new SIM with a current email address. You are stuck waiting for the moderators unless you wish to activate the 2nd SIM with a different email address. BUT this means you will have paid twice and have two accounts.
