Duration of Use
Don't worry! You've got time ... More specifically, you've got the whole period of 12 months from the time you activate your WHAT'S UP. If your airtime runs out before the 12 months, you can still receive phone calls, until the period of 12 months. You can top up your airtime anytime, by purchasing a Top Up Card (Renewal Card). Every time you renew your free airtime, you also renew the usage duration for your WHAT'S UP for an extra 12 months from the last recharge.
The validity period of the cash balance is 6 months from the last recharge. If you spend six months without recharging, you lose any cash balance left on your account.
The validity period of your connection is 12 months since the last renewal or the date of activation of the connection. If you spend 12 months without recharging, you cannot make and receive any phone calls. However, COSMOTE offers you one additional month, in which you have the option to top up your airtime and renew the validity period of your connection for 12 months. But if 13 months have passed without any recharge, your number is automatically deleted and thus your connection to the network of COSMOTE is deactivated.
*This includes all call numbers, except for those that are called free of charge (1314 is excluded), such as emergency numbers (e.g.166).
