Re: Sims 3 starter pack activation code


The code should be on a white sheet of paper.

If you don't have that, return it to where you bought it.

Good Luck and Happy Simmin

we're players here trying to help each other not EA


you can't use the codes on a new account they are tied to your original account


For Origin


IF you registered your games at the time you used them You don't need to re-register again. Simply login with your Origin account from the desktop shortcut of origin the origin you download  with the email and password you use for your  account  my games tab right click the game icon download  If it's not there anymore, contact a game adviser



Installation window installing/reinstalling via disks contact CS


also please take note of the new layout in Origin


and if your waiting to connect to support and it says X amount of wait time but doesn't connect try clear the internet cache and or switching browsers if using safari,opera or chrome try IE or Firefox


edit typo

solutions are 50/50 they work for some and not others and vice versa

please remember your on a public forum never give out your codes your emails or phone numbers here on the forums or in a p.m
