I have written an article about that in one of my blogs. Due that horrible experience i did not re-issued the number when my cell was lost and i froze that number in september or so last year.
I recently came to know that the number has been re-issued to someone else, i wrote a mail to vodafone's customer care and am waiting for their reply. i sincerely hope that they have re-issued that number to someone else and someone is not using a duplicate sim.
the articles containing the experience:
well they have graciously informed me that they have issued the number to some one else.. happy riddance is all i can say.
