My phone was stolen so I blocked sim. Have new phone & new contract with another provider. When I asked Vodafone for PAC code, they gave me PUK code by mistake. Now they are making me fill out Protect Me form to get PAC code. Trying to, but it's not accepting my screenshots of documents. I emailed screenshots to myself and chose "small" size.

Hi @LA68 

 

The file can only be up to 2MB for each file and if you are attaching screenshots, this will probably be where you are having the problems.   It shouldn't be necessary for you to go to all this trouble to verify your identity, I trust this is the form Customer Services are asking you to complete:  Fraud ID Verification Form.

 

At least by coming to the forum you have found the place to get this solved, give the Forum Team time to get to the thread and they will be able to help removing the block against your number and get your PAC code for you to give to the new provider.

What's the error saying when your trying to send copies of your documents. 

 

It may also be worth checking in your App Store as there maybe an app that allows the sending of larger files.

 

I'm aware such apps exist in the Playstore for android.

The message I get is that the file has to be a jpg, pdf or png, which it was. It was maybe too big and someone made it smaller, but I’ve no idea if that was still too big. 

 

I cant access the App Store as I’ve lost all my passwords to everything. Don’t want to set things up again till I can use my old number. 

 

This is is causing me a great deal of distress, making my health worse. I asked to be put through to someone to speak about accessibility issues and they refused, telling me to go to the website.

Hi @LA68 

 

Fully sympathise with you, Vodafone shouldn't be making this difficult for you, it's stressful enough after your phone has been stolen and having to block the SIM to prevent unauthorised use.

 

If you have not used a PAC you will still have an account with Vodafone and all that should be necessary is for you to pass data protection, the SIM block should then be removed from your account and the PAC issued. This should be simple enough for Customer Services to do without asking you to complete a form to verify your identity.

 

Give the Forum Team time to get to the thread, they will know exactly what to do, the only problem is it won't be quick but at least it will be solved.

Yes. It’s that Fraud Identification Form they’re asking me to fill in. When I contacted them the first time, I was given the PUK not PAC code. So when I realised this was incorrect, I phoned back. I was used to all my passwords being stored on the phone that was stolen/lost, and also using my thumb print. So I couldn’t remember my pIN, but I passed their security questions. So why didn’t they believe I am who I say I am?

 

I have someone coming round tomorrow to take pdfs of my ID in 3 forms, and I’ll then re-submit this form. However, given they gave me the wrong code in the first place, it should never have come to this. Thanks for your help.

I have had my ID docs accepted, but have now been told they still cannot give me a PAC code due to a technical fault. I only have one more week to give my new provider the PAC code, or I won’t be able to keep my former number. 

 

I’m beginning to think this is personal and they will know I only have one week left.

I still haven’t received my PAC code. My id docs have been accepted but they say there’s a technical fault.

@LA68 Which team have you submitted I.D into? Has the representative stated what the technical fault is that's preventing you from having your PAC? Have you tried contacting us on Facebook or Twitter as previously suggested?
