In order to activate your melita.io SIMs you need to have completed activation of your melita.io portal access. Refer to the relevant question in our help centre if you haven’t completed this step yet. You also need to ensure that you have received the melita.io SIMs to be able to complete activation.
If this is your first melita.io SIM order, on logging into the portal you will immediately be directed to the SIM activation screen where you will find your orders identified by their different features. Click on the “Activate” button of the order you wish to activate. On clicking, a window will pop-up prompting you to type in the ICCID of any SIM card from the batch of SIMs you received. The ICCID is to type in is the 20-digit number you find on the back of any of the melita.io SIM cards.
Once you key in the ICCID, this is validated, and the portal will then commence activation of the SIM cards. You will be prompted accordingly in the portal and once activation is completed you will also receive notification by email. This process may take a few seconds up to a few minutes depending on the number of SIM cards being activated.
Important to remember that activating the SIM cards will also initiate the monthly billing for SIMs in the order.
