Sure signal not connecting after sim swap

1: Seeker

I have seen the other sections about loging into another account, but i simply don't have another account to use, my two numbers are linked to the same login.


Serial: 40132754256

Hi @alanbroad


Once you’ve done a SIM swap, it detaches what is called the IMSI number from the Sure Signal.


The only way to re-attach it is to remove the number from the Sure Signal and re-add it.


If you’re the owner, you’ll need to de-register the Sure Signal on My Vodafone and re-register it 24 hours later.


If it’s not the owner number and just a user, you can remove that individual number and re-add 24 hours later.

Sorry to resurect this old thread but I have the identical problem.


I recently replaced our Sure signal and it took several days and serveral contacts with the contact centre to get it working. My phone is registered as the owner and the LAST THING I want to do is de register the Sure Signal and then have to repeat the whole process.


I was getting a technical "problem" being worked on message and it would seem that this still not working.


Its about time Vodafone got this awful service running properly.

@Murdoch1 Thanks for the details.


Please remove your number from your Sure Signal account.


With the number in question being the owner, you will need to change one of the other numbers to the owner.


After 24 hours, add it back and turn your phones off and on.


Once you’ve done this, please perform a factory reset:


  • Unplug the Ethernet cable from the Sure Signal
  • Locate the button on the base of the box next to the Ethernet ports
  • Press and hold the button for approximately 30 seconds
  • Once the lights come back on, release the button
  • Plug the cable back in


Allow around 1 hour for the Sure Signal to come back online.

I've been trying to do this for a while but I keep getting this message:


"We're working hard to fix the issue, so please try again later"


Which isn't helpful!


And no I won't contact your off shore call centre
