What to do If My Telkom SIM Card Is Stolen Or Damaged

Here are the steps you can follow if your Telkom SIM Card has been stolen or damaged:

If your Sim card is merely damaged or missing, proceed to Step 4.


Step 1:

Call 081 180 from a Telkom, Vodacom, Virgin Mobile, Cell C or MTN phone.


Step 2:

Inform the call centre agent that your cell phone has been stolen.


Step 3:

Provide your mobile phone number, IMEI number, your ID number and physical address to have your mobile phone blacklisted and the SIM card blocked.


Step 4:

Go to your nearest Telkom store to get a SIM swap. 


Remember to take your id document as well as a proof of residence to the Telkom store for RICA purposes.
