Cheapest way to keep sim active whilst living in the UK ?

Answered

Hi,

I’m moving to the UK and I need to keep my Telstra sim active so I can receive occasional SMS codes from my bank (banks will not send SMS codes to international numbers)

Do I have to pay for a pre paid plan every month ?  or is there any other cheaper way of doing this ?

Thank You.

Hi AliQ, 

 

The Pre-Paid Long Life Plus offer has a 365 day expiry for $70.

Or you could recharge $30 for 186 day's then put another $30 recharge on for 186 day's and that would be $60 for 372 day's all up.

This would be the cheapest option for your needs.

I am NOT a Telstra employee and never have been. However, I AM a customer who volunteer's my time in the hope to help someone with their question.
