If you send a private message with your number, address & DOB and a link to this thread, I'll see if the number can be reconnected.
Hi, I have this exact same issue - the sim card deactivated today. I'm also living abroad and haven't topped up in around 6 months.
Can I contact someone to see if my number can also be reactivated? Thanks.
If you PM the details I mentioned in my previous post (number, address & DOB and a link to this thread,), I'll take a look
I'm probably being dense but I don't see the box on your post where I am supposed to send a PM (according to the how to use the forum guide), Checked in a few browsers.
I have the same problem. Worked yesterday and won't register to mobile network anymore.
Any chance that my numer can be reactivated? (Sending PM)
The same problem here.
My sim card is not registering to any network.
Worked fine few days ago. I believe it's about 8 months since last topup.
Could somebode help me to reactivate it, please?
