Wish they had given notice so I could have bought a couple extra but just FYI truphone have stopped selling prepaid sims as of last week. Can't find any resellers so looks like that is it.
Current sims will still work but no idea if there will be plans to kill them off eventually. If you haven't used yours in a while might want to log a call in case they start enforcing their 180 day rule.
To me - 'nice' & corporate entities seem quite unrelated;
People can be very kind because they are living, breathing, thinking beings - but corporations are all about profits.
That being said, my attention was drawn to this portion of the reply:
...we still can replace it if you lose it or gets gamaged. We only stopped selling to new customer since Aiug. 5th.
Which tells me=>
A - They have the SIM cards in stock & on hand;
2 - I am an existing customer - NOT a new customer.
So, given that we literally have zero income right now - buying an eSIM type phone is a total non-starter & frankly since that mostly seems like an iphone thing, we are not fans of that whole deal & prefer to avoid it.
When the ms.' Redpocket time runs out - short of something miraculous happening somehow - we'll likely have to do some sort of AT&T prepaid for our minimal uses.
Also - did a test call via Truphone & got 'carrier not available' twice before it finally connected.
To make this into a complete picture=>
When Twigby makes our existing phones into paperweights, and all the other stuff turns towards forcing IOT stuff on the masses - we may have no more cellular...anything.
