Hi guys, I just bought a umobile starter pack from 7-11 on 4 days ago. I did fill in my information and the worker photocopied my IC. However, until today I still can't use the SIM card.

So I tried to manually activate it. According to others' words, I need to type *118#. I did so. But there is a section which requires me to type my name. Here comes a problem. How is it possible for me to type alphabets at that part ? Only digits are allowed.

Can anyone help me with it ? Thank you smile.gif
