Hi guys i have a question. I lost my phone the other day but a few months back i was experiencing problems with reception and the tech guy insisted that it was a sim card related problem so they sent me new ones. I activated the new one and still had a problem. Anywho now that i lost the phone and i had it stopped for now is it possible to take my old sim card back put it in and have them activate that one back. Or is it when u lose a phone you cant use the same number again. Also im in a family plan so when they sent new sim cards my family got them too but since they didnt activate the new ones yet can i take one of their sim cards and have them assign a new number to it.
What im trying to say is i have 4 new sim cards with numbers assigned to it i think and not activate it. Can i use any of them and have a new number assigned.

I lost my phone a couple of years ago. I rang up my network and they sent me a new sim card with the same number. If it was me, I would ring the network and explain your situation. I think it would work if you put a sim card in, but I would just double check.

Well I didn't have insurance but they offered it to me when I called them.. They might say you can use one of the sim cards. I suspect you could, I'd give them a call just in case.

Yeah, basically I left my phone with my mum and she walked off. So my dad phoned them because he pays for it, and they offered him insurance then. I'm on orange so.

It could be. Sorry I live in the UK so obviously it could be different over here. I would just ring to make sure because they probably will offer you something.
