Hi @Baljitkaur 

How to activate a sim when I am adding a second line? update option seems to be only for the same number. 

Hey @sreza22 Smiley

 

When adding a second line to your account, you'll receive a brand new, already active SIM card!

You won't need to activate it manually.

 

Hope this clarifies!

Very helpful thank you. I had no idea how to do it just by following links on the fido website.

I am can't seem to active my new SIM card

Hey @Gohopalong1,

 

Welcome to the Community Smiley

 

What happens when you try to activate it? Is there an error message on your side and if yes, what's the error?

 

I would suggest clearing the cache and cookies of your browser or try a different browser to see if that helps.

 

Keeps us posted!

 

 



Hey @Baljitkaur

 

SIM cards for monthly accounts can only be activated on Fido.ca via MyAccount or in a Fido store. For prepaid accounts it can only be done in a store.

 

To do it on Fido.ca, sign-in to your account. You'll first be redirected to your Account's Overview. From there, click on Show all lines (if you have multiple lines) > Select your phone number from the list > Click on View Usage & Manage > Scroll down to Quick Actions > Click the link Update SIM Card.

 

Keep in mind that for a postpaid account, if you do not have the old SIM Card number then activation on Fido.ca will not work. You must pass by a store to activate your SIM card.

 

Hope this helps! 😀
