I moved to Australia about two years ago and I had bought my New Zealand Samsung phone and also my New Zealand Vodafone SIM card with me to australia abd i have had both for over two years here with no problems at all. Today I turned my phone off with the sim inside still and then turned it back on and then when I turned it on it said no service I tried calling it from my Australian number and it doesn't even ring it just has a beeping noise. I've tried turning flight mode on it didn't work and I tried turning it on an off and still didn't work. I know my sim hasn't been deactivated because It hasn't been 12 months since I last topped up it has only been 5 months please help I really need this SIM card. Any suggestions?

Oh I see what you mean I went to settings and went to mobile networks but I can't access it as it is in dull writing and I can't click on it

When was the Vodafone NZ prepay account last topped up?

Prepay accounts expire 13 months from last topup and get deactivated

Hi there

 

A couple of things come to mind..

 

1 - Maybe a problem with the sim or phone, so it could be worth trying the SIM in another phone?

 

2 - Seems strange there was a beeping sound when you called it. Could it be that the number you called it from didn't allow the call to go through? (Maybe a tollbar, or maybe the number was dialled incorrectly?)

 

Either way - if you send me your phone number and pin I'll ask for it to be checked out for you tomorrow. Our email address is onlinecare@vodafone.com.

 

If you want to talk to someone about it you can call our "777" team from overseas by dialing +64 9 355 2007 (remember that'll be a toll call).

 

Cheers

 

Dylan
