1/5 How do you suspend your SIM card and your Orange Money account ?

The first thing to do is to suspend your SIM card and your Orange Money account (if you use it) and report the theft to the police (if your mobile or tablet has been stolen).

To suspend your account, you can:

  • Visit our Orange website here to retrieve contact details.
  • Contact us on 123.
  • If you are abroad, call us on +267 72 000 123.

Once you have notified us of the loss or theft of your device, we will immediately suspend your SIM card and your Orange Money account to prevent fraudulent use.

Note: your SIM card will be suspended, but your subscription remain active.

You can replace your SIM card and recover your subscription balances depending on the time taken to replace.

2/5 Report the theft to the police

You can go to any nearest  police station if you have been the victim of a theft to report the same. They will take your statement and may possibly ask you for the IMEI and Serial number of your stolen device.

The IMEI and Serial number  allows a very secure identification of your mobile and it is an additional chance to identify it during any subsequent checks or searches. It can also be useful if you wish to report the theft to your own insurance company, provided mobile theft is covered by your insurance.
