Re-activating old mobile phone number

Hi

I am wondering if it is possible to regain access to an old mobile number and what the options are. Quick back story, my contract was ended last year as I did not need a UK number anymore, however I need a text message verification code which has been sent to this number (this is my only option). I have tried to call it but it doesn't belong to anyone. Is it possible to get a SIM card activated again with my old number?

Re: Re-activating old mobile phone number

The number will have been returned to the pool operated by all networks pending reissue. There is no way to get it back
