Iv registered but still have not received my verification code?

Just completing the registration process here does not mean you will get the verification code sent. You will need to login to activate the verification process where you will be taken through a step by step guide as seen by this video tutorial

Iv registered and logged in but still no verification code?

You might need to give it upto about 5 mins max for the code to be sent to you but if you still haven't received the code or lost it, either 1. beep, 2. send a call me back, or 3. text a blank message from your number (in question) to +263779076776 to get your number manually verified. The reason we need you to beep/text/send call back is so we know your registered number is genuine and does belong to the registered account holder (you). Once our agent matches your account registered cellphone number and the number you beeped/texted/callme back from, we will manually activate your number and send you a confirmation email. For any queries call our Bulawayo branch on +263-9-883429

Is this only limited to subscribers of netone/ econet or telecel?

No, anyone can register as long as you hold a Zimbabwean cellphone number (+2637xxxx)
