Vi™ FAQs

What is the Vi SIM activation prepaid number?


When you buy a new SIM card, it needs to be activated before you can make any calls or send an SMS. Once you receive your new SIM card, the SIM activation is done within a few hours without any activation charges. SIM activation for new SIM cards( first time use) is done in-store by our executives or at the time of SIM home delivery by our delivery agent. 

However, SIM cards for existing numbers or a replacement SIM card in case of SIM damaged/lost, can be activated via call or SMS. To activate your prepaid SIM:

●  Vi SIM Activation Prepaid Number:

  1. Dial SIM activation number 59059 for India
  2. Provide your Identification details 
  3. SIM card is activated within 24 hours

●  SIM Activation by SMS

  1. Go to text messaging App on any mobile phone
  2. Type SIMEX <19-20 digit SIM card number> and send it to 55199
  3. You will receive a text from 55199 with last 6 digits of SIM card number missing
  4. Send the missing 6 digits back to 55199
  5. Your SIM will be activated in 20 minutes
