Activate a BSNL SIM Card

BSNL is the largest telecom service provider in India that provides 2G/3G and 4G service in different fields like Data, voice, Broadband, DTH, and many more. 4G connectivity is available in few circles by BSNL; most of the people in India are still using 3G connectivity, which is the second-fastest cellular technology now.

If you are planning a trip to India for business or leisure, you can purchase a pre-paid SIM card and phone from BSNL to use. BSNL has its services all over India, so no matter where you are traveling, you will be able to make calls within the country as needed.

If you took a new BSNL SIM card recently, then it’s time to activate it now. You will need to activate your BSNL SIM to be able to use it.

A new BSNL 2G/3G SIM gets initially activated within 24 hours. An initial activation alert SMS will be sent to the alternate mobile no provide by you in the CAF.

After initial activation, the customer needs to dial 1507for the Tele verification of his/her new SIM card. On successful Tele verification, your new BSNL SIM will get activated fully. And now, you can enjoy the service of India’s No.1 telecom company.

Steps to Activate Your BSNL SIM

  • Turn off your cell phone if it is not already powered off.
  • Install the BSNL SIM card in your phone. The SIM card slot is under the battery in the back of the phone.
  • Power on the phone by pressing the “Power/End” button.

  19. Sir its been 2 weeks that I got my sim but since i went out of station i was not able to go to the store where I get my sim card from. And when I returned back I tried dialing 1507 for tele verification but its not responding..

    Reply
    • Greetings! It is possible that you application hasn’t been processed yet. Usually retailers collect many applications and send them altogether. It is possible your sim application hasnt been processed yet. Ask the store if he forwarded the sim application or not. If not ,you can get the sim Activated from a BSNL office.
      Or call the customer care with your application number.

  28. If 1507 is not working, keep calling on 1503 and choose appropriate options to talk with customer care executive.. I called around 7 times and finally they picked up the call and my tele verification has been done. I was not able to call on any televerification number.

    • Wait for one more day for the port to happen. Don’t insert the sim before the mentioned time.
      If you did and the sim failed to register, wait for some time then call the support.
