97. How To Use Questions
    • How do I prevent the service from expiring?

      The OneSimCard phone number has no expiration, provided you made at least 1 call or send SMS once every two years.

      However, the funds on the SIM expire 10 months after your last recharge. The minimum recharge amount is $25. You can keep the balance from expiring by simply recharging at least once every 10 months. If you let your balance expire, then all you need to do to get the service up and running again is to log in and add funds to your SIM card. Automatic recharge will be canceled if you let your funds expire.
