Hello there,

 

My old SIM was deactivated because it hadn't been topped-up for over a year, so I bought a new SIM and used the [Add a number] option in my 2degrees Account Profile to include it in my account. That all worked out fine.

 

However, my old number still appears on my account as deactivated, with the Dashboard saying 'no connection', so - seeing as it's now useless - I want to remove it from my account.

 

I've Googled, scanned the forums, rummaged through 2degrees Help Pages, and worked through all the menus on my 2degrees account, but I haven't found a way to remove the old number, so as things stand it looks I'm stuck with it appearing in my account for eternity.

 

Does anyone know of a way to delete dead numbers from a 2degrees account ...?

 

Cheers,

 

Larry

No, I haven't done that ...

 

I'd assumed that as it was straightforward to add numbers yourself, then deleting them would probably be likewise - that I was somehow just having trouble figuring that out.

 

But OK, I'll contact 2degrees and ask them to do it.

 

Thanks guys!

 

Larry

Quicker to call 2degrees and ask them to remove it than to write the post above I suspect

Yeah, you're probably right ... but I didn't want to waste their time if in fact there was a way to do it myself, that I'd managed to overlook.

 

Cheers.

You are not wasting their time.

 

     

  1. The person that answers the phone when you call is paid to be there for you
  2. If enough people like you ask the same question, hopefully their metrics will highlight this & we all end up with a FAQ article spelling it out with an option added to your account menu
  3. You should have a better customer experience by having your problem resolved quickly
  4. Have you calculated the true cost of your time? Not your hourly rate / p.a. salary, but your true cost of time?  Making that phone call might have been a lot more efficient
