    If you get gome error after sending an sms…. relax.
    I called up on 1909, I was greeted by an Automated answering machine which said “Welcome to Loop Mobile To activate NDNC service please press 1 & to deactivate the service press 2”
    I pressed 1.
    I got an sms stating that this service for your phone is under procee & will take 7 days to get activated.

    The 1909 number is toll free(no charges for calling).
