I have to recharge both my airtel and vodafone number with 49 every month but this month i forgot and its been 2 weeks since i haven’t recharged and the number seems active so can anybody tell me till how many days the number remain active so that if i could skip recharging for some months it could turn quite helpful.

For Airtel nos, you may recharge it with 45/49rs every once in 3 months (this is what i have being doing from several years)

I did recharge my Idea number last in the month of January,2020 for a two day validity plan and then directly now in November,2020. I have been following the same operandi for the last 5-6 years without worrying about my number becoming inactive. Incoming has always been active all these times. I only recharge it when I know I need to make multiple calls to the banks CC’s as that number is only used to receive OTPs.

Hey how was the incoming active don’t they barr the incoming services after 7 days of plan expiry ?

And wow from January to November without recharge means i am safe with my numbers right ?

I also need them for bank only so wanted to know the safe period for not having any active plan without sim disconnection.

January to November… Wow.. such a long gap between recharges. You really are a great gambler as your username suggests. stuck_out_tongue

@ Others : Please don’t play such gambles like this person, it may cost you your number. laughing

I suggest you to make call from or on your number and talk one or two minutes. My one number is Deactivated Because of no calls. As I have using data recharge on that number.

The 2 day validity plan ?

So you mean to say basically recharge once in 2 months no matter the amount or validity right ?

Vi Store customer service person are too lazy. They are not telling anything. I have asked how I reactivate that number? No problem if balance nullified, only activate number but still they not agree and telling number is permanently closed. I told they there is grace period etc. What about that. They told ask 198. 198 telling visit vi store. On email Twitter they telling unable to find details for that number. No proper reason given for deactivation. I told them I have recharged time to time and also had more than 200 balance.
