time by using prepaid top up vouchers. Each top up voucher has an expiry date which indicates the
time in which you have to use the value on the voucher. No invoice, including the provision of
periodic or itemised statements of account, or record of calls made and/or received will be sent to
you. We are in no way obligated to give you proof of the current state of your prepaid account, how
your credit is used or prima facie evidence of the state of your account or of any other matters
recorded. Once you purchase a new top up voucher, the new expiry date on your account will be the
higher of the vouchers loaded on your account. Based on circumstance, your account will go
through the Prepaid Subscriber Life Cycle as below:
State 1: Active – Your phone becomes active once you have made or received your first call. The
number of days your phone remains active is dependent on the value of the top up voucher
purchased. Each denomination has a defined number of days before the voucher expires.
State 2: Inactive – Your phone becomes inactive when there is zero money in your call account. In
this state, you can receive calls but you cannot make paid calls. You can only call emergency
numbers, toll free numbers and Customer Care as well as your fast top up number to top up your
account, which will move you back into the active state. When your voucher time expires, you move
into the Deactive State.
State 3: Deactive – Your account moves into this state when the time on your voucher has expired.
This can occur even with money in the account. When you become deactive, you have a maximum
of 60 days before you move into the expired state. You can also receive calls, however you cannot
make paid calls. You can only call emergency numbers, toll free numbers and Customer Care as
well as your fast top up number to top up your account. You will lose any credit that was on your
account before you became deactive.
