I lost my phone a week ago and blocked the IMEI and cancel my old SIM card. Now i got a new phone from Amazon and got a new SIMcard that i cant activate on my account with my old phone number cuz i guess its still linked to that old phone. Im stuck and nobobdy at FIZZ is helping, very frustrating.

    Hi @annoyedclient

    in order to replace the SIM card in a plan, you need to contact the support and give them a copy of an ID card with photo and the credit card associated with the plan, deleting the number except for the last 4 digits, this is to protect you from the SIM swap

    You can chat in direct

    • Sign into your account

    • Follow the link on this page: https://fizz.ca/en/faq/im-unable-log-my-fizz-account-what-do-i-do

    • Wait 3 seconds for the green bubble with a '❔' appears at the bottom right of the browser, if you use a phone you must use it in desktop or horizontal mode

    • Choose the option 💬 chat

    • If the green bubble does not appear make sure your ad blocker is disabled, otherwise try with another browser.

    Thats what i was trying to do, and i finally talked to somebody at fizz, and did all the ID/credit card verification but its still not resolved. My account is stuck with my old blocked phone and blocked simcard. When i try to enter my new SIM card, it makes me select a new plan and then select a new phone number. I don't wanna change my number. The support at Fizz tell me to unblock my old simcard and wait 48h, to I imagine be able to switch SIMcard. I don't know how this is so complicated, a lot of people before me have blocked their lost/stolen phone and then replaced it by a new one with a new sim card, ive never heard that you gotta wait an extra 48h just to be able to reactivate your phone
