I have a Prepaid SIM Card that's service expired a few months ago. Can I buy a top-up now and still use the same SIM or do I have to buy a new SIM card (it says No Service when I put the SIM into my phone now) Thanks!

Hi Ben,

It depends, if your card expired less than 90 days ago you can top up your account and it will be active again with your old number. If it was longer ago, I'm afraid you lost your number and boosters... and in that case you'll need to buy a new SIM card as well.
