- Your sim cannot send message.
- You are using Airtel or glo
you need airtime to perform any transaction via your Sim most of our telecommunication providers charges from 4 naira per SMS to even 8 naira depending on the destination, content and length of the message you are sending.
while creating your Jamb profile ensure you have at least nothing less than 100 naira as this will cover all service charge
Your Sim Is New/unregistered sim:
for you to send any SMS or make a call you must register your Sim, this is the new directive given to all operators in the country, they uses this means to check crimes, terrorism and other social vises.
to successfully create your Jamb profile via mobile you need a registered Sim card.
Your sim cannot send message:

ensure you make use of a sim that had been tested and confirmed to have sent SMS.
