Without looking too much at the actual SP, I can tell you now that 
you're not using any indexes AT ALL.

This primary key is a bad idea. A VERY VERY bad idea. For starters, a 
primary key should have ONE field, not THREE. While it is allowed, it's 
not going to help performance at all. Next is that the primary key 
should be a numeric field. You've got varchars and datetimes! Yuck! If 
you want to enforce a rule such as restricting duplicate values, then 
start by creating yourself a sane primary key ( an unsigned int, for 
example ), and *THEN* put an index ( with your "don't allow duplicates" 
rule ) across your (`MSISDN`,`ACTIV_IMEI`,`ACTIV_TIME`) fields.

Next point is that MySQL will only make use of an index in a join or a 
where clause if ONLY that field is included in the index. If you pack 3 
fields into an index and then try to join on ONLY ONE field, the index 
can't be used. So look at your joins and where clauses and make sure 
your indexes match.
