I have not used my Lycamobile for a while and it has now stopped working. Why is this?
We automatically deactivate SIM cards if you do not use them to make a call or send a text for more than 120 days. Unfortunately these SIM cards cannot be reconnected and the cell number also stops being available for you to use after this time.
From Their Terms & Conditions, it seem you only need to make a voice call, send a message or data every 120 days to keep the service active. You don't have to purchase another top-up card.
3.4 If you do not use your SIM Card to make a voice call, or send a message or data, or if you do not purchase a top-up using the Top-Up Services, for a period of ninety (90) days from the date you registered or activated your Account or your last use of the Services (whichever is later), Lycamobile will contact you by SMS or e-mail advising you that your SIM Card will be deactivated. Lycamobile will then provide you with an additional thirty (30) days to make a voice call, send a message or data, or purchase a top-up using the Top-Up Services.
3.5 If you make a voice call, send a message or data, or purchase a top-up using the Top-Up Services within the additional thirty (30) day period, your SIM Card will remain active. Any previous credit balance in your Account will remain available for you to use, and you will be able to access and use the Services.
3.6 If you do not make a voice call, send a message or data, or purchase a top-up using the Top-Up Services within the additional thirty (30) day period, your SIM Card will be deactivated. If the SIM Card is deactivated, your specific telephone number will be reallocated to another Customer, you will not be able to access or use the Services, and you will not be entitled to a refund of any credit balance in your Account.
Does an MMS count as data or does it count the same as sms text ? hmmmmmm

Looks like a really good deal - now let's see if this company manages to stay in business
Not a bad record despite headwinds from Vodafone et al in Europe.
"In 2006 Lycamobile launched its mobile brand, since then Lycamobile has grown rapidly with 8 million customers in 15 countries (UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Italy, Spain, Australia, France, Germany, Poland, Portugal and Ireland). Further market launches are planned throughout 2013."
I'm sticking with PTEL..great US based C/S reps who know their stuff, use the PTEL discount coupon PTELSLICK20 to get their $40. unlimited talk/text, and 250mg data and free international text for $20. a month. And with a T-Mo branded phone, I'm getting 4G everywhere available with my Optimus L9. Love this company.
Just ordered the SIM, thanks OP. Unlimited calls to 10 numbers, for landline only, included in the price $29 or $39 plan is a great deal. Mobile numbers are different. Currently to call Irish mobile, for example, runs between 20 & 30 cent a minute with any of the major providers out there. Simple Mobile (another MVNO & my current provider) have an 800 number to call & then you have to punch in the entire number that you are going to call & the cost is 10 cent to irish mobiles. Lyca charge you 5 cent a min (confirmed by CS rep Jose) to Irish mobiles and you just dial straight from your phone, which is so much less hassle. I'll definitely be switching when my month is up with Simple Mobile. Also confirmed is that it's free to receive calls & texts when roaming in Ireland, UK or Italy (for example). It is currently not possible to receive calls or texts abroad with Simple Mobile.
Super Thanks again OP, this is a superb deal!
