I deactivated my phone last week because I thought I had lost it for good. Ended up finding it yesterday. How do I reactivate it?

You can reactivate it through Self Serve.

Unless, you called in to have it suspended then you may have to call in to have it reactivated since there is sometimes a two part deactivation.

Regarding Lost/Stolen 3G phones :
1. If suspended using Selfserve just reactivate SIM card number using Selfserve
2. If declared lost/stolen through care you should buy new SIM because it gets void
not convinced call Koodo care

Hi Mat, if the phone is declared lost or stolen, it can still be reactivated later without buying a new SIM card. Thank you.

Hi Gloria
First, you should suspend your service to avoid someone access to your phone and billed huge bills.
Log into self serve > Mobile phone > Suspend service.

You are still responsible for a monthly charge. And you can re- activate your service later.

Mat is doesn't get void, it gets labeled as lost or stolen but can still be reactivated.

Mat when you suspend your service via the self serve, ivr or call in to do it, you are suspending the sim. The same thing happens if your service is suspended by Koodo, they suspend the service on the sim. When your phone is tagged lost or stolen, it is the sim that is tagged. When the service is restored the sim is working again.

I thought when a phone is reported stolen that the sim is disabled and the IMEI is "blacklisted" after some (unknown to me) timeframe.

Correct. The imei is reported as lost or stolen as well but this doesn't happen if you suspend through the self serve or IVR. When you call in to have it reported as lost or stolen, then the handset it flagged as well so no other sim could be used in it.
