Re: sim hybernation live chat

@seanie , if you are a pay as you go customer, I believe live chat is not available for you and you will have to ring customer service to get this sorted.

Afternoon @seanie


Thanks for coming to the community.


How long ago did you last use your SIM card for one of the below?


  • Voice and data usage. This includes making calls, sending text messages and picture messages, retrieving a voicemail, and using data that is not within your pack or add-on.
  • Topping up your account.
  • Buying a pack or an add-on.


If you haven’t used your phone for any chargeable activity for 179 days, your account will go into hibernation and any credit will be removed. But don’t worry; at this point it’s not too late to reinstate it – just get in touch with our Pay As You Go Care team.
