- The primary SIM must be active (receives calls), as the service cannot be activated on an inactive primary SIM that does not receive calls.
- If the active SIM (that receives calls) is a Secondary SIM (the second or third SIM), then you can change that and make the Primary SIM the active one among the multi-SIMs, and then activate the service subscription on it by tabbing Call> Keypad, then enter the code *123 #, then tab the Call button
