No service on new sim card

Products & Services FAQs


I have the following problem:


I've got new phone and I have received a new sim card as well which accompanied the new phone. So I put the new sim card to the new phone and dialed 1907 to deactivate the old card and activate the new one. Everything went fine. After a while the old sim stopped working and the new one started working. However, today in the morning I have got a message that the change of sim card was about to be completed and that it caused the temporary lose of the service. It was at 10 am today.  Unfortunately I still have no service.


Anybody knows how long this might take because I have no service all day long.

I have a similar problem. I got a new sim card on Saturday but was unable to activate it by ringing 1907 as the meesage said there was no sim ordered on my account.

I contacted vodafone but the person I was speaking with was unable to resolve the issue immediately. He advised that this had been escalated to the technical team and that I would receive a text message within 72 hours to let me know the SIM was activated.

As it has been 3 days since this request was made I was wondering if there was anything else I could do to try and resolve this issue as soon as possible?

Thanks for your help,

Hi Ciara,


Can you send a private message with your number, address & DOB, along with your new SIM card number and a link to this thread so we can take a look?
