Welcome to Vodafone Community
I had a new sim and a new number, so I messaged out to my contacts to notify them and my sim has been barred by Corporate Security!
When you telephone the number they give you it is a voicemail service.
Anyone else had this resolved or know how to get it fixed?
If you sent out a lot of texts within a short space of time, it would look like you were spamming to the bots that monitor these things. Hence your sim got barred. A group message with a lot of recipients would also be treated as spamming.
Vodafone frown on group messages and will restrict your service almost immediately upon sending one.
Once service has been restricted, you're looking at 7-10 days without service as the fraud team are not contactable by customers and operates a voicemail service only. They are slow at what they do too!
