There’s usually no need to activate internet service, the first time you go online you’ll be charged $0,25USD for 24 hours of usage. Please note that this service is fairly slow. To upgrade to 1mbit 4G service, simply send a text to the number 1616 that says AMODEM (you can also type out ACTIVAR MODEM). This service costs $1 USD per 24 hour period.

The Brazil sim comes without a mobile number assigned. The mobile number is assigned upon arrival in Brazil when you first power up your phone. Follow the onscreen messages to select a mobile number.
