I know that the credit expires after a time limit dependant on the amount that you credit the phone by - work around for that is to recredit from afar.

As far as the SIM expiring - why not use the phone overseas? Make a short call before the 6 months is up.

Is there any way round the 6 month sim expiry when you do not use it, eg when you return to the UK for 6 months?
