Activate sim and keep old number
I lost my phone and have purchase d a second hand one.
I want to keep my old number
I have purchased a Telstra Sim Kit
when I go to activate it and they ask if I want to keep my number I say yes and it then goes to a screen where you put in your old number and they send you an activation code to your old number BUT of course I can’t get the code coz I haven’t got the old sim
i tried to ring to get help but it just went from one automated service to another and I didn’t get to talk to anyone

Re: Activate sim and keep old number
When you lose your phone/SIM, the way it should be handled is that you go to a Telstra Store or contact Telstra online and arrange for a new SIM (they can give you one, fully activated in store in a matter of minutes).
You could try contacting Telstra using the My Telstra app on your mobile (connected via wifi works - log in using your Telstra ID). The problem is that they are going to want to send you a security code to verify your identity.
