How one guy got 4 years of free service on his cellphone

My god. The exact same thing happened to my phone.

I got a phone, and sim card. But then accidently perm blocked the card. So i
order a new sim card. Register myself to that new sim. Nothing happened.
Tried the old sim and it was working again. After a week i realised i had no
credit and it was still working. When i buy credit it doesnt go down for
calls, just for SMS.

This was 4 years ago. Still works. The phone had loads of problems when it
started working again. I took it in to a network shop. They fixed everything
including CLI but said "If your getting free calls i wouldn't complain if I
were you. We can't do anything about it so you might as well make use of
