Phone number reinstatement

2: Seeker

Had the phone number for over 20 years. Unfortunately left my phone in our holiday home, used annually and now find it is no longer in existance.

It is my verification phone number for a variety of accounts which makes it impossible to update.

Can I get this number back?

If a person is fast in contacting customer services via 191 or Live Chat or the Vodafone Social Media Teams via Contact-us-for-account-specific-queries  they might be able to un quarantine the number and re issue it to you.


It depends on how long it's been turned Off and if it hasn't been taken out if the pool of numbers and re issued.


What happens if you ring it ?
