My wife has been having problems with her prepaid vodafone mobile, where she will send texts but others wont receive. By taking out the sim (aparently its one of the old types) and putting it back in then it works again for a while.
The vodafone shop says that there is a charge to replace the faulty sim of $30 - and that doesnt include any credit. Seems a bit exorbatant to me and would have thought vodafone would want to keep prepay customers given they can quite easily move to another operator.
Anyone have any ideas of how we could get the sim replaced without having to pay the $30? Not really wanting to buy a new phone. Could move to another operator but then would lose friends access. What are the deals if we get a band new sim with credit (although I guess we dont then keep our number). I know $30 doesnt sound like much but its just a pain really and not feel the charge is justified.
