How do I blacklist a phone?

8 Apr 2020

A phone that has been blacklisted, will have restricted use. This means that it may still be used with WiFi, but when a sim card is inserted, the phone will not be able to use the sim card. Blacklisting a phone with your service provider will also give you an ITC reference number, which your insurance company may require before they can reimburse you for a damaged or stolen phone.

To blacklist a lost or stolen cellphone, call Customer Care on 082 135, FREE from a Vodacom cellphone.

Please note: If you don’t have another Vodacom number with you, simply call us from any other cellphone or landline, however normal call rates will apply.

What do I require to blacklist my device?
