How long does a prepaid Telstra SIM remain active once it runs out of credit ?

Answered

I am thinking of "hibernating" my SIM as I'd like to keep the number while I don't need the SIM for up to 18 months.

 

How long will the SIM remain active after it runs out of credit, i.e. how frequently do I need to do a minimal topup just to keep the SIM alive ?

 

Thanks,

Kay

SIM will be disabled 6 Months after the last charge expired. You will have to top up every 6 months or slightly longer depending on period of recharge.
