How to Retrieve Your Lost or Blocked SIM Card (MTN, Airtel, GLO, 9MOBILE)
If you lost your SIM card or your SIM card was blocked due to multiple entering of wrong passwords, you can easily retrieve your SIM card or mobile number by following the steps in this guide.
Lost SIM card can easily be retrieved using a back-Up or Welcome Back SIM card. However, if your SIM card was blocked due to illegal activities on your number, you can retrieve the number through SIM swap.
In this guide, you will learn how you can retrieve your blocked or lost SIM card of the following networks, MTN, AIRTEL, GLO and 9MOBILE.
One of the steps to retrieve a lost or blocked SIM card or number is to call the customer care number of the network you are using. The following are the customer care number of the major networks in Nigeria.
The customer care number for MTN is 180, GLO is 121, Airtel is 111 and 9Mobile (Etisalat) is 200. Having known the customer care number of the major networks in Nigeria, the next step is to put a call across the number and notify them of what happened to your SIM card or mobile number.
Ensure that you have the SIM PUK (Pin Unblocking Key) of the number you want to retrieve because you will be asked to provide it when you call the customer care line. Another thing you should also know about your SIM or number is the surname of your mother’s maiden name and the address you used during your SIM registration as well as your date of birth.
Note that the various networks may require different information for them to re-validate your SIM but I do believe that they won’t ask you to provide anything other than the one mentioned above.
If you couldn’t retrieve your Number by calling the customer care, then here is another method that works perfectly.
Go to the nearest Office of the network you are using and tell them that you want to do welcome back. They will give you a form to fill and after your successful filling of the form, they will retrieve the SIM or number for you if the information you provide is correct.
