I had the same number with DTAC for about 7 year and cancelled it on me without any notice. When I went to DTAC about the problem they were totally unwilling to assist me in anyway. This number was tied in to many accounts and all my friends back in the USA. SHAME ON DTAC! I will never use their service again, this is for sure. :Fuck_Knows:

I read about 5 months ago that all telephone accounts were going to have no expiry.

The news above shows this is not true.

 

The best you can do is before you leave make sure you extend your sim to the max you can.

This is done by doing the following

 

Extend Validity – Press : *113*[number of days 30/60/90/180]*9# Example: *113*180*9# for 180 day extension. 2 Baht per month.

 

As you can see its only 2 baht per month to do this so well worth doing just before you board the plane to go home.

You can also extend on the net on a number of websites including KBank i believe if you have an account.

Conditions of extending your validity, according to thaiprepaidcard.com :

 

Rates: 2 baht/30 day request, 6 baht/90 day, 12 baht/180 day. User will receive a confirmation SMS. Must have activated SIM for at least 90 days continuously, or have a total usage balance of over 200 baht. Account must not be suspended, and must have at least 1 day before it expires. Remaining credit may not be less than 10 baht after

 

 

 

Wouldn't work for me today :-)

I have 10 baht still on the card now and i didn't have it active for 90 days yet.

But for people who wish to extend, it's ok to just do an online topup one or more times, then go on with extending after 90 days of validity.

I think i will just buy a new one..

Try to call this number : *101*9#

It also works from your home country.

For prepaid, it gives you the credit on the card and the amount of days it is still valid.

 

Let us know what you got... Or did you get no network availability at all ?

Then either your roaming is not on or your card was cancelled.

 

You can confirm it with DTAC : Simply call + 662 202 7100 (dtac call center)

1.

-Is your British phone an unlocked one (can be used with other simcards / operators : use that one

-If it is not :   take a cheap, maybe second hand, not locked GSM phone with you. Make it a second hand smartphone running on Android or if you prefer on Apple's IOS. This way you can still use internet on your phone for whatever you would want to use it. Skype calls to UK, check mail, send mail, etc..
- On arrival, go to an airport office of DTAC or buy a simcard in 7/11 (24 hours shops, find them EVERYWHERE)

 

2.

- If you arrive without a phone : go to TUKCOM  in Pattaya where you can probably buy a phone for 500 - 1000 baht, cheap samsung or nokia or anything you want. Ask them to give you a DTAC tourist sim (from 49 baht and one day unlimited internet + 15 baht call value included). They will install it for you and you will get a working phone in your hands.. Advantage of tourist sim is that you can send text to other countries cheaper and often you get a good deal on internet. With a cheap phone, you will not use internet though..
 

3.
If you are not in a hurry and once you meet a girl you 'click' with and keep her LT :    ask her to arrange a phone and new sim for you :-)  
Tell her you want CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP if that is the case or you might end up with a new Iphone or a thing like that.   Even better : go to the shop with her :-)     I guess these girls all know where to get the mustard !   Knowing that finding mustard is more difficult than sperm though..
Sometimes, you need to delegate things in life :-)

Cheers !
