Hi @Saduser you need to call or chat to customer service and hope it hasn’t been too long http://www.o2.co.uk/contactus

Credit is usually applied 24 hours after successfully réactivation. 

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

@Saduser Depending on how long it's been since you last used it will determine if the number can be reactivated. Normally you have to make a chargeable call or text every 6 months and top up every 999 days. If it hasn't been used for a long time the number might have been reassigned. Only way to find out is to speak to customer service.

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2
