So, log into your certified e-mail box and start composing a new message by entering the address I gave you as the recipient. In the body of the email, it specifies the ones that are the your needs (i.e. deactivate the card) and reports i personal data of the holder of the SIM (presumably yours) and the telephone number of reference.
Also, attach a double-sided scan of yours to the e-mail message identification document valid and send everything. Subsequently, you may be contacted by Vodafone for further confirmation regarding the operation to be performed, after which your card will be deactivated.

Deactivation due to transfer to another operator
As anticipated at the beginning of the article, you can also deactivate your Vodafone card switching to another operator. In this case, however, the procedure is totally automatic and the associated numbering is not expected to be lost.
Unless otherwise specified in contractual conditions of your card with Vodafone (which I suggest you consult, in order to avoid "nasty surprises), the deactivation of the SIM for switching to another telephone operator does not involve additional costs (except for those provided by the" new "operator for the activation of the new form).
In any case, the procedure to start to switch to another operator is quite simple: all you have to do is go to a center of the telephone operator with which you intend to sign the new contract, bringing with you a valid identification document and the SIM you wish to keep the numbering, and explain to the employee you are going to interface with what your intentions are.
You will then be asked to sign some forms and you will be given a SIM with a "provisional" number. Subsequently, within 48 hours, your old phone number will be associated with the new card and the provisional one will be deactivated.
In addition to this, as I have just indicated, you can request the switch to another operator by visiting the website of the manager of your interest, selecting the offer you are interested in and following the on-screen procedure to request number portability. The documentation and the provisional SIM will be sent to you at your home.
