My husbands phone number is 07775557133 but each time we try

Customer Question

My husbands phone number is ***** but each time we try to use the phone it doesn’t, recognise the number. He does not use the phone regularly but did not expect to be disconnected.
JA: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your smartphone?
Customer: JCB tough phone
JA: How long has this been going on with your smartphone? What have you tried so far?
Customer: This happened once before when they just took his number from him because he did not use it often enough
JA: Anything else you want the Smartphone Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: he does not know if he has money on the phone as he could not get his number recognised when I phoned the help number.

Hi there and welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.
Can you please hold the power button on the device until you see a menu and choose power off.
Then power on the device and tell me if it still has the problem.
Thank you

I did what you said and then I dialled his number using my own phone but got the reply that I had dialled an incorrect number. He still cannot dial out. I think that Vodafone have cancelled his number again because he doesn’t use it enough.

This sounds to be the case, can you please call Vodafone on 0333 3040 191 in order for them to activate it again please.
