I just got a sim for a spare old handset in the car glovebox for emergencies i.e. when we forget to take a phone with us

 

With 2D I just top up and it lasts a year but can I do that with Skinny because if I have to buy a combo I assume it expires after a month/week...

How long as Pay & Go being around ? I ask as my wife and I mainly sms, receive calls and use wifi so we could change to that

 

Does anyone know if the Skinny site is zero rated e.g. for top ups and logging into etc ?

Hi,

Skinny's website is zero rated so you can access it if you have no credit.

You will need to top your account up at least once a year to keep the account active.


Regards,
Alex from Skinny.
