Business Line : Industry & Economy / Info-tech : Airtel to disconnect users inactive for 60 days





Bharti Airtel will start disconnecting subscribers who do not use their phones for more than 60 days together.





The biggest impact of this move will be on subscribers who had taken lifetime validity pre-paid cards as they are currently required to do a minimum recharge only once in six months.

This thing is old. I mean some one already posted about this in the forum. If you don't use your prepaid at least once in 60days it gets Disconnected.

Vodafone also does the same thing. My brother in law who stays abroad and comes to India once or twice a year was shocked to see that his vodafone number was not working. When he called the customer care, he was told that the number is deactivated as he didn't use it for more than 60 days.

What I feel is it is not about recharge, it is about not using the SIM for more than 60 days. What I mean is, not using the SIM for both incoming and out going calls. Keeping it in turn off mode.
