Reactivating a deactivated SIM

Hey all!

I lived in Canada until March 2020 but came back to Australia because of Covid-19. I'm returning in November 2020 but my Public Mobile pre-paid service/SIM has expired. I still have the physical SIM card and I would like to reactivate it for when I return. How can I go about doing this?

You can't. Once your account is cancelled so is your simcard. Consider ordering a new one from canadian cell supplies when they are on sale for $2.99 and have it sent to your new address or a trusted friend so its available to you when you arrive.

 

Edit: Public mobile has their sim cards on sale for the next couple of days thru the website for $5+ tax.

@iskrazaf You'll also need to open a new account using a different e-mail address and you'll need to get a new phone number.
