Understanding Freedom Mobile Prepaid (minimum top up to keep account active)

I have been on a $10 Freedom mobile's Tablet Prepaid Plan since 2012 and because of Covid I don't really use data anymore but I wanted to keep my plan/number active.

I know if I top up 10-20 days after due date I pay $6.66, and 20-30 days after due date I pay $3.33. But what happens after that? (Does it go back to $10 after that If I don't pay?)


I am also wondering about the minimum $$ I need to pay to keep the account active? I know the account gets deactivated if I don't top up within 90 days of due date. Say the Due date is July 19th for $10, do I just top up close to 90 days (i.e., Around October 17th)? How much do i need to pay by then to reactivate the service, is it $3.33?



Thanks!

Top up around 11 days before 90 days. Ex: On the 12th day, login and check balance, still say 6.66, then wait, on 11th day, login again, check if it becomes 3.33. If yes then top up 4$ (min is $5)

The balance becomes .66 ($4) or 1.66($5) after a min. Check with *130#. Your next expiry date will also update

Write to calendar, use wolfarm alpha ask “today add 90 days” then mark 12 days before the due day on your calendar
