    Cheap PAYG sim to receive calls 15th Sep 17 at 3:06 PM
    Looking for a sim just to receive calls, accept it may have to be topped up but can that be done for less then £5?

    Three's PAYG (£10 starter top up) doesn't need additional top ups, the only requirement is to make a chargeable call, or send a text, every 179 days (check their specific T&Cs for the exact max time interval). Calls are 3p/min, texts 2p each. Making a call every month is not going to run the initial credit down much, in theory it could last 27 years... Or until they change their T&Cs,

    Any payg will expire if its not used, normally around 6 months. Shouldn't matter what you buy if its just to receive on.

    I have had a £10 Three sim for about 4 years and have not yet topped it up. Just remember to make a call for a few seconds every so often.

    Try white calling https://www.whitecalling.com/

    Uses EE, minimum top up £2, get voucher at most top up shops

    Fine for just incoming calls, as said for others, make a short text every 3 months or so to keep it going
