48 Starter Guide

[ Edited ]

Hey there,

 

here's some useful stuff to get you started with 48.

 

 

I want to join 48, what do I need to do?

 

You've made up your mind and want to give 48 a go? Great stuff. Stick to the steps below to make it a smooth journey:

 

More info

 

Get your SIM and unlock your Phone

 

All you need to join 48 is an unlocked handset and a free 48 SIM card. Check out these guides to get you started:

 

 

Register and move your number

 

After you've received your free SIM follow this guide to get it registered:

I've just joined 48, how do I get my phone up and running?

 

Great to have you on board. Before you continue double-check that you've done all of this:

 

More info

 

Have you removed the network lock from your phone?

Yes - Great, move on to the next question

No - Your phone needs to be unlocked in order to work with 48, this guide tells you how to do it

 

Have you registered your 48 SIM?

Yes - Nice job, move on to the next step: paying your membership

No - Better get that done now, you can find the instructions here

 

 

Pay your membership


This is different to how it works on other mobile networks; you'll need to use your top up credit to buy a monthly membership. Find out how it works in this guide:

 

 

Set up Internet and picture messaging on your phone

Re: 48 Starter Guide

Can you clarify exactly what you did so far and if you got any email at all?

You should get an email asking you to validate your email soon after registering. 

If you did not get this then you can request it again by logging into you online account.

If you still do not get it make sure that you entered the correct email address and that it is not in your junk mail folder.

Once you get that and validate your email address you should be up and running once you register/activate your SIM. port your old number (if applicable) and buy membership.

Other emails may be sent but that is the only one needed to complete registration.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: 48 Starter Guide

I don't understand the blank emails either. Go to this link and login when prompted. It should list your open request(s). You can then annotate them or see what feedback they are giving you. Alternatively if you use Facebook try contacting 48 support that way.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi,

 I have just joined 48 and I have paid for membership but i dont have any signal on my phone wherever I go.  Plus, the internet isnt working. My phone has accepted the sim because when i type in the pin number and it says pin verified.

Hi 18sinead

 

 

Your handset may be asking for the 48 Sim Pin... its a 4 digit number printed on your Sim card packaging your sim arrived in... enter this and your handset will be operational.

 

Can you post back exactly what the wording displayed on your screen is?

Re: 48 Starter Guide

Your post was blank but I presume you posted the query here and I have replied to that one:
