Once the pack has been purchased, you will receive a confirmation SMS.

Do I have to activate the SMS Pack every time it expires?

Yes, these are one-off packs that can be purchased as many times as you wish, whenever needed. At the end of the validity period, the packs will expire and you would have to re-purchase them.

What happens if I don’t have enough balance in my account?

You will have to recharge your Wasel prepaid account and try activating the pack.

Can I deactivate these packs?

Since these are one-off packs, there would be no need to deactivate them since you have already paid for them. You can continue using the included messages until your pack expires.

Can I purchase multiple SMS Packs of the same category at the same time?

Yes, you can purchase multiple packs of the same category at the same time. Each pack will have its own allowance and validity period.

Can I still enjoy my current prepaid tariff plan?

Yes, you can continue to benefit from your existing tariff. Any national SMS sent will first be consumed from your monthly SMS pack, and any usage beyond that will be charged from your main balance and as per your existing tariff plan rate.

What happens if I don’t use all my SMSs within the validity period?

All unused SMSs will automatically expire.

How can I check my remaining SMS balance?

After each call, you’ll receive an SMS containing details of your remaining SMSs. You can also check your remaining balance at any time by dialling *101# and choosing Option 1 – Account Management.
