No service/coverage around my area. Trying to activate a new SIM Card but not working

Products & Services FAQs

Hello. About 2 weeks ago I lost service on my phone at my house. There are other people in my household who are with Vodafone and are having no problems. It's only when I'm a few minutes away from my house do I get any service. There are other areas as well where am at and don't have any service.

I've been into the store where I got my phone and they have given me a new Generic SIM Card to activate and see if it is my SIM that is causing the problem. However, neither the 1747 Customer Care or the Live Chat is any help as they both just point to go to the other to activate the SIM.

So I'm asking, is there any way to fix my service in my household or how to activate my new SIM Card. Thanks in advance

Mods wont be back until Monday to help.
As you have service (when you're further away from your home) the issue sounds like it's your phone. Different phones have different types of antennas. Some are better then others. What phone do you have?
