A friend gave me a Vodafone that he used while in London in March, 2004, and informed me that because it has not been used in over a year has probably been disconnected by Vodafone. The phone is a pay-as-you go phone.
Instead of renting or buying another phone, I would like to try and use this one. Does anyone know what I will need to do to make this phone "active" again, and is this something that I can do from the States, or will I have to wait until I get to the UK to activate it? Would I have to purchase a new SIM card and also new phone credits to make and receive calls?
I am trying to make all arrangements here so that I can provide phone number to family in the US, as well as traveling companions that we are meeting up with while on our trip.
