However you do have to use the phone occasionally and Lycamobile just made a change to the phone usage rules. To keep your account active you must now make a call, send a text or use at least a penny's worth data every 90 days. The old inactivity limit was 120 days.
If you don't call text or use data for 90 days your account will be deactivated and you will lose your balance. The company will send you reminder texts 50 and 30 days before expiration so I doubt this change will affect many Lycamobile users even if they don't use their phones regularly.
The only people who might be caught out by this change are those who keep a charged but turned off phone in their car for emergency use or use a Lycamobile SIM in a burglar alarm or other monitoring system. If either use case applies to you consider this fair warning that you now need to make a call, send a text or use data every 90 days instead of every 120 days.
