You need to check if its still live.. They normally say they expire after 6 months but in my experience that doesn't seem to be the case.

Hi there.
As long as the sim card has not been activated,it will be fine.
Only activated sim cards that have not been used expire after 6 months.

Just activate it there is no fixed time,
Bear in mind that activation could take up from 30 minutes to 24hours
