DND activation is a part of the Vodafone service and can be performed by the users themselves. The process is very simple and requires only one phone number. You do not need to pay any activation fee and you can opt for a fixed or variable rate plan, depending on your current usage of the service.
If you wish to use the service free, you have the option of free activation. You just need to dial the number with the code and you are ready to go. If you wish to activate the same day, you need to pay a couple of dollars for the services.
When it comes to activation, the customer service representative will advise you of the procedures involved. He will also get the mobile number to call and help you out.
In some cases, the number has to be assigned to the name of the user. Thus, if you have a friend, you can call him on his mobile and assign the number to his name. Thus, the person is registered and you are able to activate the same day for free.
However, in case you are in a hurry and you want to switch on the service in the shortest possible time, you can opt for DND activation. You will have to pay an activation fee and you will need to go to the next step.
As soon as you start using the new mobile in the UK, the service is activated automatically and you will find yourself being connected to the service. You are required to make calls from the same number that was assigned to you.
However, in case you wish to switch on the same day, you need to pay an activation fee for the DND services. The activation fee is based on the usage and you have to pay this as well. The service will automatically activate once you have used the same number for a period of at least 24 hours.
This number is actually the Internet protocol (IP) address of the device that is assigned to you. So, there is no limit as to how much you can call. However, there is a certain limit for each line.
Usually, there is a limit as to how much you can call, based on the size of the mobile phone. A large phone is able to handle more calls than a small one.
The number is assigned to the account of the mobile device and the account has to be active for the device to be functional. Thus, if you intend to use DND, you need to activate the same on the day that you first get the phone. This helps to maintain the billing records and also helps to maintain the system of the service.
Activation is the easy part. You do not have to go through the whole process of switching on the same day.
