Re: Phone

@Stacey1 If the number is now inactive you cannot retrieve any messages. If it has been some time since you used the number it may have been reassigned to someone else.

If its been about 6 months since you last used it, you could call customer services on 4445 and ask if the number could be reactivated. You may have to top up if you have no credit on the phone
