Gadgetren – Buying credit or data packages is really necessary if we use a prepaid card. If not, the number used because it can enter the grace period.
The grace period itself is the time after the active period of the prepaid number is not extended and runs out. The number will be limited later so that some of its supports will not be able to be used properly.
Upon entering the grace period, a number will usually not be able to be used to send SMS, make phone calls, or purchase certain services. We can only use it to receive it.
Just like the active period, the grace period also has a time limit which is generally only 30 days. The cellular number will also be forfeited or deactivated if we do not recharge it until this period ends.
Checking the grace period, the good news is that it’s easy to do whatever operator you use. If you use a Telkomsel Prepaid card, you can specifically follow these steps to do so.

UMB (USSD Menu Browser) is easy to use but unfortunately does not support the touch screen feature. To select a menu or option in it, we must also type the appropriate number and then press the button Send.
For example, to select Check Credit according to the steps I used above, we need to type in the number 7. We can also use the same method for menus or other options.
