Do unused SIM cards "expire"?

Hello, Everyone,

I'm not exactly new to PM, but have a noob-sorta question. Back in the early months of the pandemic PM sent out some free SIM cards to certain PM clients as a cool promotion. I got one of these SIMs, too. Until now, though, I haven't had a need for it. I'm hoping to be able to mail this 15-month old, never-used SIM to a relative.

 

Does anyone know whether my SIM is still usable, or whether it has "expired"? If it hasn't expired, will it ever expire if left unused? Also, if you guys have an answer, can you guarantee it's accurate? (I don't want to disappoint my relative by sending her a useless item.)

 

(If anyone's able to help, it may take me until tonight to respond.)

 

Thanks.

Sim cards don't expire as long as they have not been activated.

The new SIM card does not expire. It will be fine.

@mandos  no.. they won't.  no expiry.  

 

Just make sure they have never been activated.  Activated SIM cannot be reused.

 @mandos : lol but no one here can guarantee anything around here. The company could go under. The company could choose to invalidate all currently inactivated SIM's. The company could move to eSIM only.

Darren Entwhistle might know a thing or two if that detail isn't too far beneath him. The big bosses might know a thing or two. The mods likely wouldn't know anything.

.. another thing.. if you relatives are activating a new line,  some local kiosks might give out FREE SIM card if you activate with them.  Check around.

Re: Do unused SIM cards "expire"?

Love all those extra what-if ideas... I too like to think of various contingencies, however unlikely. I believe they call this vice (a tendency toward "negativity") "defensive pessimism"... 🙂

 

I appreciate your wry sense of humour. :)) Thanks for your input.

Had no idea about this possibility, softech. My relative might be able to use this info. Thanks!
