Lost your mobile ? then just recover your number over the web !

If you are on giffgaff or VectoneMobile then you can disable / ‘recover’ / switch your number over the web if you have a backup SIM . Just login to your mobile networks web portal then navigate to UPDATE MY SIM your old SIM can be shutdown and number transferred to your new SIM.

BUT DO NOT FORGET YOUR WEB PASSWORD since password resets are only SMS’d to your OLD / LOST mobile !

VectoneMobile USSD short codes

vectone mobile payg sim and huawei honor phones

i seem to have come across a bizarre bug with vectone mobile payg sims and a Huawei HONOR  KIW-L21 phone

first it has 2 sim slots and if you read the small print slot 1 only runs 2G and slot 2 can run 2G/3G/4G

so what i think happened is i put my vectone sim in slot 1 first which seems to have disabled data on the HONOR phone (and make tethering invisible when it is inserted into an iphone) but everything works fine when i put it in a MI

workaround

  • my primary giffgaff sim in my HONOR
  • my backup giffgaff sim is in my IPHONE
  • my vectone sim is in my MI
