Vodafone cancelled my Sim number. It was in a NOKIA ASE-6XN permanently fixed in my car as emergency phone

I just had the same problem. June 2017.
My ASE-6XN is purely an emergency set up and has been in my car 15 years + I was not using it enough so they cut me off although there was £20 balance in the PAYG sim
I do understand the Cell system some.
Firm discussions with Vodafone produced a replacement SIM but it was REJECTED by the phone.
I realised " after a while " that the older ASE-6XN needed a 2G SIM. The replacement I was given was a later G3.
This is no good in the older 6XN.
Vodafone could not now offer a 2G Sim even though they had caused my problem.
I ordered a G2 Sim from GiffGaff.
It worked immediately it was registered. Calls are 15p a min as against Vodafones 35p.
So I seem up and running again.
No help from VF
So try GiffGaff 2G Sim

I have just found my mobile phone LGCE0168 after losing it 6 months ago. How can I restart the Tesco PAYG sim card

I am wondering if you have tried another sim card in your newly found phone?

In theory there should be no problems just put your sim back in and make calls.

I am wondering If Tesco have changed service provider in the last 6 months? If they have it could explain your problem.
Asda mobile changed provider about a year ago from Vodafone to EE and my phone stopped working because it wasn't an unlocked phone. As it turned out I had to replace my phone for one that was unlocked because it wasn't worth the expense and trouble of having the old one unlocked. The old one still works fine on Vodafone and O2.

Just a thought. Another thought is perhaps it developed a fault while it was lost or maybe someone has been fiddling with it in that time.

There are lots of aftermarket phone shops around with specialists to give advice. The Tesco helpline might be able to help.

Good luck!

My old vodafone sim containing all of my numbers shows as blank, or empty, on my tocco lite. Any ideas? When i put the sim in my old samsung the numbers appear fine.

Try copying them onto your sim again in your old phone. Make sure you copy and not replace. In effect you may find you have 2 sets of number identical on the phone
