Question about SIM card not in use for more than 6 months

[ Edited ]

I have a friend who has a giffgaff SIM card. But his last purchase of goody bag was in Sept 2012. He only use the sim card for less than a week and went overseas. Now he is back in UK. Can he still use that SIM card if he buys goody bag again in April 2013? (Giffgaff sim not in use for more than 6 months from Oct2012-April2013)

Cant you try sending a text or calling the number to see if it still works.

 

Please use the options button then edit to remove the phone number as these are public forums and the number can be seen by any nutter.

Please remove his number as this is a public forum.

To be on a safer side ask him to get a new sim and technically it should be deactivated by now.
