I have several deactivated XT sims, in the old CDMA days you could reconnect a phone to pre pay for free (and you might even get some credit too) what's the story with XT sims, do you just chuck them and buy a new sim pack or can they be reactivated if so at what cost?

What do you mean by deactivated SIM's?. Were they replacements, or numbers that have been ported?

IIRC you can get a new Number Put on them,

Telecom Allow you to do it, Vodafone Do not.

Vodafone did that for me..
BW ported my number over from vodafone. and i did not know about. so I called up vodafone about 5 times.
then a tech called me. and ported my bw back over to vodafone.

Yes but that is not the same as getting a new number on your sim.  Vodafone won't do that.  Telecom does.

Just wondering, does this mean I can take my old XT sim(ported my number through to Slingshot) to Telecom and get the Sim reactivated for resale with my old XT phone?





I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

And they don't charge for that service? If not, wow.
