Activate your pay as you go phone
All you need to do to activate your Tesco Mobile pay as you go phone is make a call to any number.
Once you’ve done this, we recommend you register your phone’s unique IMEI number on the Immobilise website. This might make it easier to recover if it’s stolen.
Before you make a call
Make sure your SIM card is inserted. Our SIMs are standard size with a pop-out micro or nano – so they work in all phones.
You’ll then need to top-up to use your phone.
Getting to know your phone
Our device guides have lots of step-by-step information to help you make the most of your new phone.
If your phone shows no service or network, there could be a temporary problem with the signal in your area – you can use our coverage checker to find out. If you’re still having problems calling, please contact us.
