Products & Services FAQs


I haven't used my phone in a long time, I don't use it that requently but I do occassionally (my number is important because old contacts have it, I've used it for 2 factor verification).


I was not able to send a text last night (I can recieve texts as far as I can tell, I recently recieved a few) and I logged into my Vodafone account online to see what was wrong. I log in and get this message:

We're sorry, but we're unable to complete your request.

Sorry, your account has been marked 'inactive', as it has been more than six months since your last top up. Please click here to top up and restore your service (SRV-DA-03)

Click Here to go back and try again.

(UNIQUE_ERROR_CODE : c1G9ckrNvzhphRCGVGKTQxxjgPwFc2s9ThhHgbdYtJFGyBvgnny7!)


I clicked on the top up function, entered all of my card and address details, and when I clicked submit it said my phone number isn't a registered Irish number. I double and triple checked that I entered the right one... so clearly topping up did not restore my service.


Can someone please help me with this? Thanks so much.

If the sim hasn't been used for over a year the number has probably entered recycling and has been lost for good. In that case you need a new sim and number (drop into a vodafone store).
