How do I activate an old account?

3 replies 101 views Edited Jan 21, 2013

I gave away my first account to a PSN friend thinking I wasn't going to have anymore time to play video games with my new schedule. Long story short he diden't take good care of it and now it's deactivated. Only I can activate it but I don't know the number, does anyone here now? 

 

Thanks.

Why would you lend your account to another person? In case you didn't know, System & SEN/PSN accounts are Free.

 

Accounts don't get deactivated, they get banned. If your friend managed to get your account banned then you will have to contact SONY support. 800-345-SONY Mon - Sun 6:00AM - 10:00PM Pacific

 

Systems [PS3's] do get deactivated [games & movies] To reactivate a system you don't need an special number just go to: PlayStation Networks/Sign In/Account Management/System Activation

 

If these are not the answers you are looking for then you will have to rewind and give us the long story version.
