NEW Thuraya Super SIM Renewal Process
As renewal approaches, expiration reminder messages are sent every other day for 15 days prior to the account expiration date.
If the subscriber has enough credits in their account, there are two ways in which the account can be renewed:
1. Subscriber can renew immediately by dialing “150” and selecting option “6” within the 15 day period prior to expiration.
2. The subscriber can just let the account automatically renew after it expires. An SMS will be sent confirming the renewal.
If the subscriber does not have sufficient credit in his/her account, a grace period will be granted, during which the account will be automatically renewed if the subscriber tops up with the required amount. If the account is not topped-up/recharged, the account will be automatically closed.
Yearly tariffs for account renewal
• $99 for customers using less than $120 of satellite airtime annually
• $60 for customers using more than $120 of satellite airtime annually
• Free renewal for heavy users (more then $2500 annually)
