GoPhone expiry date, is the SIM now cancelled?
I know that there has been many questions asked about the expiry date of the GoPhone plan. However, I can't find an answer to my question.
My GoPhone plan expired on November 11 2016. I thought I had no need to top it up again but something has come up (I live in Australia and will be going to the USA in March) and I logged into my account yesterday which is 65 days after the expiry date. I am given an option to "Refill now to renew your plan." My plan was for $75 for 8 GB of data. I was able to top up my account with the minimum of $10 as suggested by another post. I don't want to use this plan again until March 15 (another 58 days). I realise that the $10 will be forfeited as it falls within the one month refill expiration plan.
I am confused as to whether my GoPhone is now cancelled (the sim cannot be used) as it is over the 60 day maximum. If the plan has been cancelled, how can it be renewed by adding funds to the account? If it can't be renewed, how can I refill the plan as that would be trying to add funds that cannot be used by any process?
I would be happy to add funds to the plan if it would stay active and can be used between March 15 and April 12 as it saves the hassle of visiting an AT&T shopfront. But that means adding another $65 or perhaps $75 to use the plan starting from March 15. I am not convinced that my plan will be able to be renewed so could someone provide a definitive response about the expiration date? If my plan has completely expired, why not just close the account and avoid any confusion about adding funds when they can't be used.
