Personally, I will advice that you recharge #100 credit on your phone before going ahead to create your Jamb profile using your phone. Just make sure that you have enough airtime.
2. Your Sim Card Is New:
So many persons using new sim has reported the issue of SMS sending to create Jamb profile.
If you have enough airtime but still facing this issue, you may want to try creating your profile using your old or main line.
Ensure not to use someone else’s sim to create your profile. It is very risky to do that.

Now, if your line is not new and you have enough airtime but still having issues, you may want to give MTN & Glo line a try. Non MTN user has reported this issue for far.
4. Your Sim Card cannot send message:
Due to error in your message centre number and other configuration issues, you may not be able to send messages with your phone. If this is your case, quickly contact your customer care line to help you fix the issue.
