Can't activate a SIM due to payment error and no longer seeing phone selection list.


I've got two plans with fizz and was looking to add a 3rd. I received the SIM card and phone a few days ago.

When I tried to activate, I received a "payment processing error" with no further explanation. Called my bank, there's no transaction attempt or issue on their end.

I've tried to change the address (although it's the same for the other two lines) and now I'm not able to select a phone number. Under the "Get a new number" I have no options at all and I get the "Please choose, you can't refresh this list again" warning. I had selected a number before getting the error.

Please help, I'm completely stuck. Can't process payment, can't activate SIM, can't choose a number.

    This is still not resolved. Who can I contact?

    How do I get in touch with Fizz? I can't activate my account, the issue is not on my side from what the bank is telling me. What is the number to reach anyone?

    I spent close to half an hour talking to the live support and it didn't get anywhere. I'm still unable to activate and apparently, I need to escalate to the "technical support". I'm not sure why they wasted my time with links to the resources I've already spent hours going through.

    In either case, I've decided that this isn't worth my time. I've initiated a phone return and will be looking at other carriers.

    All the best and I hope you find good software engineers to fix the backend that throws non-descriptive faults.
