Hello guys,
I find myself stock in the middle of a storm, I ve lost a sim card that was ordered from my account as additional card and activated with account details which I cannot remember. All I have is the number and maybe the email address, How can I replace the new SiM number with the one I have lost?
Many Thanks,
