The payment is charged before transfer number?

It is already three days that the technical issue has not been solved, and the sim card is actually not activated yet. But the bill payment is already charged, why?

    Hi Phyllis,

    As Fizzy said, Fizz is a prepaid service, so you pay at the beginning of your cycle. The portability of your number is independent from the payment. There are numerous reasons your phone number portability (transfer) might ended up in error

    Here are some common issue with number transfer
    - You have to make sure that your phone number is still active with the other provider (Not cancelled or suspended)
    - The account number or IMEI doesn't match what the other provider have on file
    - The number requested cannot be transfer (Such as a business, landline phone number)

    I hope this answer your question,

    Have a good day,

    Yes, Fizz is a pre-paid provider that is why they have charged you when you have activated your mobile plan.
    Also, sorry for this unpleasant and technical problem about the activation of your sim card.
    Please contact the Fizz customer service by chat if they can give you rapidly the service you deserve.
