When you select Telephone Activation, is it giving you the number to call and you call and this fails?

Or you cannot get the number to call?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No I have called and been through the process twice infilling the activation code. I have checked this twice and it still says the code I have entered is invalid.

Thank you

I would then like you to call

844 800 2400

Once in contact with a customer service representative you can then have it activated with them over the phone.

I am still here, so do this please and let me know the results.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
