How many months can a Sim be inactive?
When is a SIM card considered inactive?
If a SIM card is stolen along with the phone, the owner must immediately inform the telco and provide the following details: name, address, birthday, mobile number, and other relevant and reasonable information that can prove that the owner lost the SIM.
What happens if SIM card is not registered?
If you are getting the not registered on network error on your Android device, then it simply means that the Sim card of the phone is unable to connect to the carrier's network. And, due to this error, you won't be able to receive or make calls and text messages.
