Telephone service 4242
The first way to know when to top up your Wind line that I invite you to consider is to make a call to 4242, the number that the "orange manager" makes available to its customers for the management of top-ups and telephone credit. The call is free and the number is active 24/24.
That said, take your smartphone with the reference Wind card inserted inside, unlock it, access the screen where all the applications are grouped and open the dialer (the numeric keypad) by tapping on the relative icon (usually it is the green one with the telephone handset). Then dial the number 4242 on the keyboard and press the key for initiate a call (usually it is the one with the symbol of handset lifted).
When the call has started, listen to the instructions of the recorded voice and press the button for know the remaining credit and the expiry date of the SIM (which should be the 2). Once this is done, you will be shown the remaining credit on the SIM and its expiration date and you will be able, therefore, to find out the deadline for reloading the card before it expires.
Do you want to find out when to top up your Wind SIM by sending an SMS and receiving a reply message? This can also be done. To do this, just send special text strings to the number 4155.
To be precise, what you have to do is take your mobile phone with the reference Wind SIM inserted inside, unlock it, access the screen where the icons of all the apps are grouped and tap on the one for the message management (usually it is the one with the icon with a "printed" on it comic).
Computing the above steps, start composing a new message and type, in the field dedicated to entering the recipient, the number 4155. In body of the messageInstead, write the text INFO (to receive information on the expiry of the SIM and on the time needed to recharge, as well as on the active tariff plan) or STATE (to receive information on the status of active options, services and promotions with the relative activation or renewal date).
Then, send the SMS by pressing on the item Send (or in any case on the wording for send the message visible on screen). You will then receive a reply message containing the requested information.
