At the moment you perform the first call from your new Vodafone number ( or to 131), send an SMS or navigate on internet you are officially part of the Vodafone Network.
The first outgoing activity ( call, SMS, internet traffic) must be performed in Albania)
By dialling 141/1 you will be informed on the date your credit expires and also the date of the last recharge. The credit expiry date determines the ACTIVE STATUS Period, period in which you can use all Vodafone Albania services according to your tariff plan ( Vodafone Card or Vodafone Club ).
Different recharged have different expiry dates according to the amount of recharge. After the expiry date the credit left in your balance will expire and the SIM Card Status changes to PASSIVE. You will be notified by an SMS for the credit expiry date 7 days in advance so that you have enough time to perform a recharge in order for the SIM Status to be still ACTIVE
In case you do not perform any recharge after receiving the notifying SMS for Credit Expiry date, the SIM STATUS changes automatically to PASSIVE on the date mentioned.
Your number may stay in the PASSIVE STATUS for a period of 3 months if no activity at all.
During this period you may receive calls, SMS, SOS Credit but you may not perform any outgoing activity, use the expired credit or use other Vodafone services. Any time you receive a call or SMS the PASSIVE STATUS will be postponed with 3 months.
If during the PASSIVE STATUS you receive a SOS Credit by another number or perform a recharge, the expired credit will be added back again to your balance and the SIM STATUS changes automatically to ACTIVE.
In case of no activity at all (Incoming/ Outgoing) during the PASSIVE STATUS, the number will be permanently deactivated from Vodafone Albania Network.
You will be notified by an SMS for the deactivation date 10 days in advance so that you have enough time to perform a recharge in order for the SIM Status to be ACTIVE again.
If the number is deactivated, Vodafone reserves the right to disconnect the number from the network and this number cannot be used or reactivated again.
