So yesterday I signed up for a S3 on a Talk 240 contract. My number was with MTN but was moved over to prepaid when my old contract finished. I arranged with the guys at the shop (Cellucity) to do the number transfer and simswap. This was after 16:30 so they said it would be done today, I've recieved SMSes saying it's done. I could still make calls on my old SIM but now the new MicroSIM in the S3 is not registering on the network. I phoned Vodacom who assured me that the MicroSIM is active on that number and that I should just turn off my old phone, take out the SIM and wait.
The S3 has yet to register on any network. If I goto Network Operator selection it gives me the big 4 as options, trying to click on any of these gives me an Unable to connect Mesage. If I try Select Automatically, same thing.
How long does the registration of a new SIM usually take? It's been about 2 hours since I phoned Vodacom.
