Is there any way to recover a tbaytel sim card/account that has been expired? The number and account login no longer works.
For how long?
There is no harm in calling to ask

Unused data is rolled over to following year upon $100 top up, so no need to buy 20GB at $125 immediately.
Do not select auto renew
Delete your saved credit card info after you topped up

You can top up by telephone and not store any card data as an alternative.

How do you guys set "auto renew" and save a credit card? I cannot find these options.

I added funds over the phone so I didn't have to store any address details. I then set a "Reminder" in my cell phone (syncs to Google Calendar) to let me know multiples times before the year comes to and end. Even if I lose my phone, I still have the details I can get to online with my laptop.

I see this in thread summary:
Example:
Top up:
$100 top up - > Extends Expiry 1 Year
$25 top up - > Extends Expiry ADDITIONAL (stacks) 2 months
New Expiry - 14 months
but when I try a $100 topup before expiry I see new expiry as today date + 365days.

Has anyone done a recent topup to confirm?

If I need a replacement SIM (current one is badly worn), any suggestions how to proceed?

Yea they fixed that a while ago. You used to be able to stack, which was awesome if you used the data faster for a small period. Now it's only date of topup + 365.

Maybe we should fix thread's summary as well. I just lost a week of service because of that.

It is great that you have reported the new change.
So if you have too much data left, just watch a couple of movies - I can put up with that

You don’t use the data for the sake of reducing it. The data carries over. You just have to renew on the day of expiry and not earlier.

Why did you lose a week? When you select any amount, it tells you the new expiry date. You would've noticed that the new expiry wouldve been +365 days instead of your old expiry + 365 days.

This. addon's don't expire, even if they have their expiry date. All you have to make sure is that the main account is not expiring, and just keep loading 100$ every year


And regarding my request, can anyone let me know what is the best way to get a replacement SIM card since my current one is very worn out and "scratched" from putting it in and out of my phone (which has a high friction coefficient and it scratches the SIM contacts every time it's taken out or put in)
