Why? In some countries it is required that your service pass verification process (usually 24-48 hours, sometimes longer), and during that process, Fortumo staff will check your promotional materials or place where you promote your service - page on your site where sending instructions and prices are listed.

For now, we will not send your service to verification, because it is not ready yet. Don't worry, you can do it later.

Number 5 and the grey circle means that your service is not yet active in all 5 countries selected. After your service is fully functional, don't forget to send it to approval (as described here).
