Re: SIM card not working

6 months after a recharge last runs out, the SIM is permanently deactivated and the number put back into the pool.

It sounds like you may have recharged somone else's service.

You need a new SIM & service for your device.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Re: SIM card not working

Hi there @Jacks3

Very sorry to read that your sim card is currently not working.

Are you activating a new service or has your current service suddenly stopped working? Additionally is this a pre-paid service or is it a post paid? Does your phone show that it is connected to the network?

Please let me know so I know where to direct you.

- Will

It’s a prepaid account which I haven’t used for about 8 months. I replenished my account reinstalled the SIM card but it won’t work.

A replacement SIM Card can be arrange at any Telstra Store and the process should take about 10 minutes.
