Can you get a sim card with no expiration date?

    Hi all,

    I want to link an alarm up to a cellular dialer system so that it can
    call me if the alarm is tripped. I want a pre-paid sim card (GSM) that
    does NOT expire, but I'm not sure if anyone offers such a thing. All
    of them need to be topped up at least once per year. Hopefully, my
    alarm will never have to call me.

    I wonder if anything is available in another coutry (my folks are in
    the UK) which could be used over here.

    Thanks for any advice

    I don't know if this is what you want but I have a mobile with approx.
    £12 of £20 that I put in over three years ago. It still
    works ........if/when I charge it. I don't like carrying a mobile. :)
    It's from Virgin. (No SPAM intended here!) :)

  3. The question the OP posed was:

    The OP wanted to know if a pre-paid cell phone sim card from UK
    would work on a network in the States. No they won't.
    But the google groups fool offered this worthless reply:

  4. It's called network coverage, and no what you want
    from a foreign sourced sim card is not possible.
    What is stopping you from contacting one of the
    cellular services in your locality and asking each
    if they supply a non expiring pre-paid service -
    they will.
    Or just pop into your local Fry's or Wal-Mart,
    goto the appropriate section, speak to a rep, read the
    contract, within five minutes you will have exactly
    what you want without having to post to silly newsgroups
    and get replies from fools on google.
