Hi alsaediahned & welcome to the Community. Smiley Happy

 

To activate your SIM card, you simply need to log into Fido.ca, select the Services tab, and click on Mobile. You'll then see the option Update SIM Card.

 

Cheers!

@stephenso You should be able to update your SIM card. Do you use your e-mail address as your username when you log in?

Hi @stephenso

 

I suggest that you sign up using your email address as the username so that you can fully take advantage of all the functions on My Account. 

 

Let me know if anything.

Hi FidoFaiza,

So we need to register a new account with our email address as username and use that account?  

The account with our phone number as username doesn't provide us with full account features?  And we can stop using it in the future?

Thank you.

@stephenso, I wouldn't say that logging in with the phone number doesn't give full access. We recommend registering with the email address in case a customer is having problem with the phone number method.

Re: How to activate my new SIM card

Hi FidoFaiza,

I have just registered as a new user to log into my account now.  But I am also required to register as a new user (stephenso1) in order to log back into the Fido Community and reply to this forum.  All of my previous account information, status, and messages are still with the old account (stephenso) and cannot be transferred to this new one?

 

Also, the issue is still the same.  I still don't have the option to Update SIM Card.

My phone number is on the very left with the check mark, then "Change My Number", then "Refer A Friend".  I still don't have the options of "Update SIM Card" and "Upgrade My Device".....

Oh no, that's too bad Smiley Sad I should have mentionned you would lose your community profile. No worries though, we can help you get it back.

Thanks, @stephenso1
