Reactivating Your Airtel SIM Card
There are cases when it has been observed that the old SIM cards get deactivated due to some reasons such as the insufficient balance and because the user has not agreed with the activation terms of the company. For Airtel, a SIM card gets deactivated on its own because of two reasons. First that the SIM card has a balance of less than Rs. Twenty for a long period and if there is no usage such as no calls or no texts simultaneously for about 90 days.

Sim card will be deactivated but recharge payment not be blocked? What kind of robbery is this? Why don’t you prompt the customer that their number is deactivated when they type their phone number during recharge? Next time you make an ad, let it be ‘India’s fraudest network’ and not ‘India’s fastest network’?
