How does the dialler get the SIM card balance?

User question:


…the new sim card balance display on the web panel.

Quick question, how does it update?

I did a status command expecting it to drop by 2p but it stayed the same…?



The dialler gets your balance every night between midnight and 1am for free. It also connects to our server to put the data there and also tell it of any problems like multiple resets, low signal and low battery etc… That costs 1p on O2.

If O2 sends it a balance notification at any point during the day and it’s also connected it will update your balance on the server. So you might see a change during the day in that case. If you refresh the page you’ll see this if it happens.
