- Make sure you are not moving around while completing the registration process
- You may have taken more than 10 minutes to click on the Activation link
Can I use my Smartphone as a hotspot for my computer to access the confirmation email?
No, because you are using two different Wi-Fi networks – #TELUS to start the registration process, and your hotspot to finish it, which will result in an error.

Yes, you can!
Why didn’t I get the confirmation email?
Try checking your Junk Mail folder, since some email providers will route the email there.
