Hello!
The only way you can do this is to keep using it at least once every 6 months. Just a single text every 6 months will keep it going, so it won't cost a lot Smiley Happy though remember to put a topup on it to send from abroad.

Hi
You need to make a call, or send a text at least once every 6 months to keep your sim active.

In order to keep your SIM / account active, you need to
do at least one of the following every 6 months...

● Make a least one call, SMS or MMS to another number
(for technical reasons, emergency calls like 999/112 & SMS/calls to giffgaff services (i.e. 2020, 43430) do not apply).

● Make at least one connection to the internet.

● Receive at least 4 calls of more than 10 seconds

● Make a least one topup/purchase (credit or goodybag)

● Receive Payback points (for recruiting new members
or participating in the community).
