    How to activate a new idea prepaid sim?

    1. Telecom Support Staff
      December 21, 2015 at 9:36 am

      They will provide two options. One is customer care executive will call you to the new sim number and you need to give some account holder information’s to them. Another method is you need to call a customer care number and tell the details to them. They will activate it. Please switch off and switch on every 6 hours up to the activation process.

    I have done number porting from Vodafone to Idea,my vodafone sim card is not working anymore,and your sim card is showing the signal but i am not able to do any call or send msg. I tried calling 59059 but i don’t understand a thing. I am foreigner and there is an option to choose english and when i choose it it still talks in local language,it doesn’t pick up english at all.What am i suppose to do now? My no is 8095987282

      January 6, 2016 at 2:14 pm

      Have you made call from outside India ??? then it will not work i think.. You need to call activation number from inside India and check again. If this issue presents again and again, please walk in to any of the idea customer care office.

    i am using idea sim booked by a different person. I had used it in a videocon handset smoothly for a long time. Recently i buy a vox v102 calling tablet, the 2g internet connection is so weak, then, after 2 days disabled now. Can not use till now. But, I am able to comment this from my old handset with the same sim that i removed an hour ago, very smoothly again! Whats the problem with new device? Whenever i ask new gprs settings, ‘Your phone is not provisionable’ is the response. Zela, Aizawl.

    10 days back I bought a new idea 3gsim for Rs. 30/- from a salesman on the street. To activate the sim I entered the activation number but there was no response. even there was no signal either. I could not get any help from the Idea stores. When I approached the idea Coimbatore they advised me to give one more proofs i.e photo and ID card to activate the SIM. I feel afraid if I give one more proof, there is a chance that the proof set given earlier may be used for illeagel activities. so I do not wish to give one more proof set . Make sure if any body wants to buy a new sim from IDEAstore BE CAREFUL
