Activating SIM on new Z plan

Hi there

I just signed up for the new Z15 mobile plan and am yet to have the SIM being sent to me. I am porting my number over from three. I am just wondering, how does activation work? Do I need to call up to initiate the activation?

The reason I am asking is that my monthly cycle with three is on the 10th of each month. I get charged my full cap amount regardless on the 10th. Once I receive the new SIM from Exetel, is it possible for me to delay my activation for a few weeks so that I dont have to pay double for next month?

Thanks

Please note that activation can be done either by log in to the members facility or call provision on 0280301000

Note that you can keep up the service without activating for 7 days

My Z15 plan has just been "completed and activated" (according to an email) but my current sim is not working in my phone. Am I supposed to be waiting for a new sim from Exetel? My current sim is already Optus, and I don't recall anything from Exetel stating I had to replace my sim.

I got an email telling me to activate the SIM by logging into the website, but I cannot find an activate button. As far as I can tell, it's already activated on the website.

What am I supposed to do?

Morning All,

Is the email response method working for sim activation? What is the quickest/recommended way?
I received this email from provisioning-

Dear Sir/Madam,
Your Exetel mobile service is currently in a pending state ready to be ported/activated.
If you have received your SIM card in the post, we can simplify the provisioning of the mobile service for you.

Ports (transfers) of service
Please reply to this email with your mobile service number in the subject of the email and that you would like to commence the port of service.

New Number services
Please indicate by reply with your name in the subject of the email and that you would like to activate your new number.

The above , sending an email to provisioning@exetel.com.au is one of the 3 ways available for you to activate a sim card :)

You can also activate the sim card by logging in to your members area or you may even call our provisioning team on 0280301000(option 3) :wink:

This just happened to me. I hope my new sim card is in my mailbox when I get home from work....

My Z15 SIM seemed to be activated by Exetel 1 hour before I picked it up. Slightly miffed in that I planned to push the remaining prepaid credit to a friend. I would be more irritated if it cost me real money, rather than some time & confusion sorting it out.
