Activating a new sim card while keeping your old telstra number
I'm currently overseas and my prepaid plan expired since it wasn't in use for 6 months. I have received a new sim card but I want to activate the new one and still keep my old telstra number.
How do I go about it?
cheers in advance

Re: Activating a new sim card while keeping your old telstra number
When your SIM expires due to the previous recharge expiring more than 6 months ago, the phone number is returned to the pool to be reassigned. So it may no longer be available to you.
You would need to call Telstra on +61 439 125 109 to see if you can get the old number back.
Your other problem is going to be activating the new SIM as I am pretty sure that it won't be able to be activated while you are overseas. It needs to be connected to the Telstra network for initial activation.
