Anyone had their Emtel / Orange mobile number deactivated and given to someone else?
I've got an Emtel SIM (prepaid) which I don't use that often and I tried to find out how long before my mobile is deactivated but couldn't find any info online. I know if you don't recharge the mobile network operators will recycle your number ie give it to someone else but they don't state on their website how long before you need to top up again to keep your number.
I've also come across an Orange Premium SIM which costs Rs1500 compared to Rs100 for the standard one but you get the number for life. Kind of ideal for those who travel back and forth to Mauritius and want a single number to use.
Anyway back to my original question, do you have to top up every 3 months to prevent losing your mobile number?
