O2

Lost or stolen device


If your phone has been lost or stolen, we’re available 24 hours a day to help. We can block your phone and sim, and send you a new sim with your existing number – all for free. 

 

If you have phone insurance, we’ll also help you make a claim and replace your mobile.

  2. If you’re a Pay Monthly customer, you’ll also need to know the name of your tariff, and the date and amount of your last bill.
  3. If you’re a Pay & Go customer, you’ll need to tell us two of the phone numbers that you call or text a lot, plus the amount of credit left on your phone.
