Prepaid service deactivated

My service was recently disconnected and I was wondering how I can get it back. I've been in lockdown and so haven't needed to recharge and I didn't get any warnings that I was going to be disconnected.


I need the number for 2FA. I have spoken to online chat twice. The first one told me I would be able to get it back but I would need to activate a new SIM. Upon getting said Sim, the second person on chat told me it was not possible.



Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Prepaid service deactivated

Did you get the consultant to send the SIM out to you or did you buy it at a shop?


The way that I understand it would need to work is that you would need to place an order with the consultant for a new prepaid service and for them to allocate the number to that service/SIM prior to dispatching it.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
