New Sim fails to Register on Telkom Network

I bought a new Pre-Paid Telkom Sim, Switched Tariffs, loaded Airtime onto it and bought the 500GB for R50 Night Surfer Data Bundle. After struggling with the APN settings (Telkom Consultants give out the wrong APN by the way), I was able to connect to the Internet. The Sim was roaming on MTN's network and used the normal data on the Sim, but refuses to use the Night Surfer. The 3G dongle and the 3G Router both pick up Telkom's Network, but the Telkom Sim fails to register on the network. How?


I have bought other Sims at a variety of stores, Rica'd them in all those stores, and none of them are active and Telkom tells met that these Sims are not Rica'd and that I have to go to my nearest Telkom store, which is 400km away.


I have no idea left what to do anymore.
