Re: Nano Sim Activation

The only department in Telstra who can visualize the activation process is the "Activation Centre" who operate business hours. If an activation gets stuck they can push it through. It's very hard to get to speak to them but Mobile Support has access to that department.
You may have to ring more than once to get an operator who will put you through

I tried calling and was told by recording to call back in the morning and live chat wont help either. Thanks for your suggestions.

I don't recommend eating your sim card. 😂😂
I am not a Telstra employee, so all opinions are my own, I have been around Telstra products a long time and have a reasonably strong general tech knowledge. .

24/7 said my sim was active then said up to 24 hours. My phone now says not recognised on the network. I guess I'll just have to be patient.

Re: Nano Sim Activation

Thanks for your advice everyone. I was able to call while at work today and got a very helpful tech person who got my SIM activated, then messaged and called me to confirm my phone was working properly.

Without the help and advice here I wouldn't have had the correct information or contact to get it sorted so thanks again.

Take after the directions that accompany the driver to introduce it. On the off chance that regardless you can't bring the printer on the web, proceed with the means underneath.
