How To Activate Your Rain Sim Card

Your Rain SIM card may be activated quickly and easily in just a few seconds. You are ready to use the first 4G and 5G networks in South Africa as soon as you have the SIM in your hand and are prepared to load it on your phone.

What Is A Rain SIM Card?

The first 4G and 5G network in South Africa to provide a data-only option is the Rain SIM Card. Therefore, there won’t be an SMS or phone option. With Rain, you can take pleasure in online browsing and surfing, social media chatting and posting, or even watching your favorite series on Disney Plus. As long as you have a network subscription, you can accomplish a number of things. 

Steps To Activate A Rain SIM Card

You can use these easy steps to activate your Rain SIM card. Please be aware that you will also need to register for RICA, and that you’ll need your passport or other government-issued ID to do so. 

  1. First, you need to visit the Rain website.
  2. An option to “activate SIM” can be found on the home page.
  3. You can see the procedures for activating your SIM on the following page. The “Get started” button can be used to begin activating your Rain SIM.
  4. Now, you must set up a Rain account.
  5. The next step is to select a plan and validate your SIM.
  6. You will next be asked to register your payment information.
  7. Not to mention, you must RICA your Rain SIM online.

How Long Does It Take For Your Rain Sim Card To Be Activated?

You can activate your Rain SIM in this manner. As you can see, the procedure is rather simple. You’ll finish in 30 minutes or less. You have completed all of the aforementioned processes and are eager to use your Rain SIM to surf the internet. Activation of your Rain SIM card takes how long, though?

Once you have completed the aforementioned steps, including RICA registering your SIM online, it takes around 2 hours for your Rain SIM card to become operational.

You will get an SMS letting you know that your Rain SIM Card is now operational. The same information will also be sent to you by email. The My Rain dashboard allows you to look up the status of your SIM’s activation as well.

What Happens Once Your Rain Sim Card Is Activated?

What should you do after learning that your Rain SIM is now operational? We learned how a Rain SIM card is activated. The SIM must then be inserted into a phone or your router in the following step.

Most of the time, a phone will automatically obtain the necessary APN settings the instant you insert the SIM into it. For DLink routers, Rain APN settings have already been discussed. Other router kinds are covered in other articles on our site.

In any case, routers typically do not automatically receive Rain settings. As a result, you will need to configure the system using the instructions supplied for your specific device. The APN settings are what you should first check if you don’t have internet access.
