Each SIM/USIM-card has a validity period. After activation of the card, it makes 60 days (for Vodafone Red XS or Red S, Vodafone Light or Light + starter packs). After each subsequent recharging for 5 UAH (except the Money Transfer service) a period of validity is extended for 365 days. To check the number validity, use the query *101#
If the numbers are expired, the card can be blocked by the operator.
In addition, the card can be blocked in the absence of outgoing events (calls, SMS&MMS, mobile Internet) for more than 180 days.
If at the end of the validity period the card number is registered in the Vodafone UA network, you get incoming calls but can’t make outgoing ones, to renew the validity period it’s enough to recharge the account in the amount of 5 UAH. Recharging can be made in any way, except the Money Transfer service.
If the card is not registered in the network, contact an operator of the Vodafone Ukraine Service Center to clarify the possibility to renew the number:111
