How to activate your TPG Mobile SIM card

Community Manager

Are you a new TPG customer ready to activate your new TPG SIM?

Or are you an existing TPG Mobile customer ready to activate a replacement SIM card?


Check out this video to activate your SIM, or read on for detailed instructions. 


    a. If you've chosen to receive a new number: Your activation will take up to 12 hours (including weekends)
    b. If you're transferring your number to TPG: You will receive an authorisation code via SMS on your old SIM card that you must reply to.

        Your activation will then take up to 24 hours (excluding weekends).

Please continue using your old SIM card until it stops working (which means that activation is complete)



1. First, log in to TPG My Account at





Tip: You'll need to log in with your 7 digit Customer ID number. Check your service confirmation emails from TPG. If you've forgotten your password, check out


 2. Click on “View All Mobile Service Accounts”




 3. Click on “SIM Activation”




 4. Read the important SIM Activation information then click "Activate SIM Now" 

IMPORTANT: Please keep your current SIM in your phone while activation is ongoing (after clicking on Activate SIM Now). You will be receiving an authorization code via SMS that you will need to respond to. This code ma take from a few minutes to 2 hrs from when you started the activation.

Hello Manuel,


I have done 5 steps of activation as shown, but can't make any call and hear that "the number you call is incomplete..." . Also, tried to call TPG numbers, and got: no registerred on network. Please explain what happens and how long to activate / register the sim card. Thanks.


Hi @KJnewuser,


Welcome to the community!


Once performed all the steps posted above, try to restart your handset then try to check if you're able to make outgoing calls and send SMS to your own number.


Let us know how it will go.

I've received my replacement SIM - went to follow the activation instructions, but there is no "Activate Replaced SIM Card" option in the "View All Mobile Service Accounts" page. Where can I find this?
