Question 3 UK expiration question - 16-09-2009, 04:31

Is it true that 3 UK SIMs have unlimited validity after you have topped them up? Don't you have to do some kind of action every so often like send a text or whatnot so you keep your balance?

Default Three UK - No usage policy - 16-09-2009, 20:00

Pay As You Go customers are required to use their account (whether it be chargeable or free, including Skype usage) once every 180 days, or "Three" reserve the right to terminate or suspend their service.

Simply make a free skype call. For example, call the echo test number: echo123

I don't believe the ordinary credit expires at all, and there are times when my old one hasn't been used for ages. I joined their WePay scheme (now discontinued) over 2 years after my contract ended and I switched to prepaid, with no credit added in between. Account now:
