So basically, I'm trying to play online. It won't let me. But under my Battle feed, it says "ACCOUNT NOT ACTIVATED" (Yes, in caps). I think this is the reason why I can't play online. battlelog has been giving me all sorts of problems. Any help?

I have entered the code dozens of times in the ingame store. On PSN, it says I have already used up the code. I have used battlelog and BF3 together before. Just yesterday it said that my account wasn't activated and I couldn't play online (still can't today). I'm at a loss of words. I've been having major problems with BF3 on my PS3 or in my network that no one else seems to have since release. Could it be my code is messed up?

Do you have more than one profile on your PS3, and if so, are you trying to play with the same profile you activated with?

I have only used one account on BF3 with my PS3. I will call or support chat tomorrow with them. This is absurd.

I've always been more successful with calling, support chat people never seem to know much.

Update:

I tried chatting multiple times today but they were all slow and frustrating. I decided to call them after a while. Waited like 30 minutes for tech support to pick up. They told me that I was probably given a duplicate key (weird since I played a bit on it fine but it stopped working). SO they gave me 2 fresh keys. Tried 1 on my main. No dice. Still "ACCOUNT NOT ACTIVATED" under the battle feed. Tried another code on a separate account (same PS3), same message. So I ruled out the possibility of a flawed code. I think it's either my PS3 or it's a rare problem that only a few people are experiencing. I'm gonna try tech support again tomorrow and tell them everything that's wrong and hopefully there will be a solution to the issue. If not, I'm sure there will be one in the first patch.

Until then, anyone have any ideas on what could possibly be wrong?

Go to BF3 in playstation store. click on ONLINE pass and download it again. Maybe you screwed up when you were downloading it the first time

I got the pass with my game (Not on Playstation Store). I have also tried to redeem each code multiple times. I don't think that's the solution. I wouldn't want to pay $10 for something that isn't my fault seeing as I somehow played for a few days before this error...

When you enter the code, it takes you to the ps store download screen where you download the file that activates your online pass. Did you download the file? If not, you can go to the ps store and download it again. You wont have to pay becaue it said you already entered the code.

Like I said, I have done it multiple times. I have played online before. Only recently it started giving me crap and saying I can't play. At least I have all campaign trophies now due to my misfortunes...

Did you bother to try downloading the online pass file again? Once you purchase or redeem a code for something in the PS store, you can download it as many times as you want without additional charge.

Yes I have done it numerous times.


I'll make a list of everything I have done:

Uninstalled and reinstalled the game
Hard reset router (yes wireless is the best I have) and put my PS3 in a DMZ
Got new codes. Used them.
I downloaded each code (Tried 2 codes on main account and 1 code on second account) at least 5 times each.


Now what still works for me:

Online for pretty much every other game (flawlessly)
Campaign works

You've downloaded the file numerous times? Not just entered the code at the "Redeem code" screen numerous times? These are 2 completelty different things. Once you enter the code, it wont let you do it again, but like I said you can download the file the code activated multiple times.

I have entered the code and downloaded numerous times from the in-game store. I have downloaded it numerous times from the Playstation store. I have tried redeeming it again in account management in XMB but it wouldn't let me.
