Re activating sim

I have a pay as you go sim from when we visited the uk in 2014. The date on the recharge card says 11/23. Just wondering if it would still work, as we are visiting again in April, or whether its easy to buy a new one and start fresh. I can't remember the UK number that was allocated either. Any thoughts?

@DunnAus : No, it's dead and gone now. EE PAYG SIMs unused for more than 9 months are deactivated and their numbers thrown back in the pool.

Hi @DunnAus

 

Welcome to the community. 🙂

 

Some airports have SIM card dispensers. You can find the nearest EE store to the place you're staying on our Store Finder. They'll be able to give you one there and then.
