Every time I top up my DTAC sim at one of the machines outside 7/11 I get a full year before expiry. This September I topped up 20 + 2 bt charge and got another year.

With True you get an extra month every time you top up by 90 baht up to a maximum of 12 months but you can pay a few baht to extend anyway.

Thought this would be a good thing to remember...  Some guys asking about this regularly in other topics..     Now.. What about validity (in time) :   Very important for tourists who want to keep the

Sorry, you may need to top up 12 times but you have no idea which DTAC sim I have. I would not make a claim if it was untrue. I do it every trip to keep my number.

The 2 of you are clearly not going to agree so just leave it there please.

sorry but it's wrong

 

you get 1 month maximum for any top up.

 

you need to top up 12 times 10 baht (+2 baht) to get 1 year.

Reviving this thread:

FYI

I have a True SIM that was going to expire in January 2021. I have a lot of credit on it.

I used the True Live Chat today and once I’d got through to an agent, took an hour, she quickly extended the validity for a further 180 days for 12 baht 45 satang taken from my credit.

 

Why not do it alone with a code to extend ?

Because the SIM wouldn’t work here - I tried it!

Just checked my messages received following the last 2 top ups, date applied at top, amount and new validity clearly stated.

I have an AIS sim. I just top it up with 50 baht every few months using my K Bank internet banking phone app.

I have about 450baht credit at moment and valid to May 2021.

I think every time you top up it extends the validity period.

I use Dtac different sims for more than 10 years, so I guess that I know what I am talking about. 10+2 baht topup at orange 711 machine gives 1 month validity, nothing more, nothing else, and it has always been the case.

I top up once each trip just before I leave Thailand to maintain the number but I guess you do not believe the image I posted then

Stuck in Oz till [email protected] knows when. Had to top-up my AIS sim before it was to expire this month, tried the AIS site but there's a problem at their end when processing, kept rejecting my CC .

Found a site ding.com, there are others, which does transfers. Paid $5.80 including fee for 100baht top-up which I thought was reasonable and gives me another years validity.

I had the same problem with AIS. Phoned my Bank here in Australia and they said there had been no request from the Thai Bank to obtain payment and that it looked like a link problem.

I thought with AIS you needed to top up with 20 Baht a pop to extend validity - but yours just did straight off the bat with 100 baht- is that correct ?

Correct, with ding.com the lowest is 10baht but they charged my mate $1.17 in fees. Seems you cant select the amount you wish to top-up with, 10baht is the lowest then its 100baht plus there maybe a international transaction fee from my bank which hasnt appeared yet.

I've just topped up 100 baht - but it only gave me a months extension of validity.

I guess it depends on your sim. I purchased mine 10 years ago and its always had a 12 month expiry from date of top-up. I paid 300 for the sim and to have my phone unlocked from a phone shop in soi dianna, long gone now, not from 7/11.

If you have plenty of credit  you can trade some balance for time extension by using the Mao Mao 30 days code,  *500*9#

it will use around B30 off your balance and give you another month.  AIS.

I've asked a friend to do a few DTAC top-ups at the orange machines outside 7 or Family Marts. Usually I ask for 20 Baht several times but she always is generous and spends more. Can't seem to get it into her head that multiple small spends is what I want to get several months extension, 555. Building up quite a reserve on my account now.

Anyone know if it can be done online for DTAC as Davidge does for AIS?

*113*180*9#  is the code I use to extend 180 days. Cost 12 baht, but may be 18 now as above.

*113*DAYS*9#. DAYS can be 90,180,270,360 as far as I know at 2 baht every 30 days.

Presumably you can only extend from outside Thailand if your phone is set up for international roaming?
