I am wanting to use the OPTUS app - I need an SMS to activate - I only have Ipad SIM with OPTUS
where does the SMS go?
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
Hey AndyJS - are you able to let us know if you're still unable to use the app on your iPad? If this is still the case, can you send us a private message with your service number, full name and DOB? We'll follow this up for you.
Apple iPad cannot receive or send SMS texts via their data sim - only through iPhone SMS message forwarding (where you iPad can send texts via your iPhone).
any software solution for the iPad that relies upon the user being able to receive a SMS to activate will fail
i am an enterprise iOS software developer (who, by the way, also cannot activate their iPad prepaid data sim account - either through the app or online, because Optus requires the device can recieve SMS)
as as a workaround, you might be able to put the sim into your iPhone long enough to activate it - or Optus could fix their service to accomodate iPads
