That's because unlike postpaid mobiles, there is no proof of identity for prepaid 'accounts'. If this ever does happen to you though, all you need is a proof of purchase and any Telecom store will unblock the phone for you.

Ask the buyer for the original proof of purchase.  Or get a mobile on account.

If you don't like Telecom's system, swap to Vodafone. Easy.

Somehow - and I'm not being rude here - I think others know how to make Telecom "Bigger, better, faster & stronger" more than you.

I don't normally do this, but do you have anything better to complain about?

CSR's should preform certain checks to try and identify that phone is acutally the callers before baring. Now MOVE ON!
