Activation Period for a New SIM

A family member is getting close to signing up to PM, but she still has a balance with the previous provider in a 'Pay As You Go' account. Obviously, she wishes to consume that balance before starting her subscription to PM.

 

She, therefore, wishes a SIM from PM to be readily available, to enable her to sign up to PM the sooner her balance with the previous provider has exhausted. She is not interested in porting the number.

 

One option would be to go to one of a PM’s SIM seller and pick it up, while the other is to order a SIM from PM and be ready with it. She prefers the latter. 

 

Question: What is the time period within which a new SIM — received from PM directly — must be activated after receiving it, like 30, 45 or 60 days?

 

PS. SIMon offered no help in my searching for an answer on this.

SIM cards never expire (unless the company folds, of course)

@sa7375  Your very welcome 😊. If I were you I'd get the sim card from CCS as suggested by fellow member @hairbag1 .  I've gotten sims from them before, very secure and fast.

Thanks @sa7375 .

When your family member does activate an account...make sure to give them your referral code. That way, they get $10 credited to their account and you get $1 off every time your plan renews as long as they stay with PM.

Also...suggest they use a valid credit card or debit card and enable Autopay and they'll get the Autopay Reward of $2 every time their plan renews itself.

@hairbag1  Thanks again for those added suggestions. ❤️

 

Re my earlier question on 'authentic'. You had mentioned your personal experience, and I wanted to know if it's backed by some description on the PM's website to make it authentic. But so many people have now supported it, I do not need to be skeptical, and can close it here.
