My other half has a very old (15 years, maybe 20) Nokia pay as you go (Vodafone). He turns it on once or twice to recieve a message and sends the occasional birthday text etc. He turned it on today and it says "sim card registration failed". We took the sim card out and gave it a wipe but it didn't help.
I've tried contacting Vodafone but couldn't get through to a human.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Also, if we do need to get a new phone and pay as you go sim, will we be able to use the same number if this sim has died? Hoping that's not the case though.
Best case: we want to keep this phone and sim and get it working again.
Next best: new phone, same number.
Thanks in advance for any advice. It's a pain because he needs it to get into websites etc when they send confirmation codes, so need to sort as soon as possible...
