How TIM automatic recharge works
To begin with, let me provide you with some more information on the service in question, so as to give you full awareness of what you intend to give up: TIM Automatic Recharge is a service that allows, in practice, to carry out automatic top-ups on your SIM by withdrawing the amount from a credit card, a debit card, an enabled prepaid card or a current account.
In this case, when subscribing to the service, two automatic top-up methods are activated at the same time: that on threshold base, which provides for the payment of a top-up of 5 € upon reaching the threshold of 3€ of residual credit, and the one on renewal basis, which provides, by Previous 24 hours the renewal date of each active offer on its line, the disbursement of an amount equal to the cost foreseen by the offer, except for offers that cost less than € 2, for those with direct domiciliation (credit card / current account) and for those with payment by means of a TIM bill.
Once the service has been activated, the automatic top-up methods can be freely changed: it is possible, for example, to change the "emergency" credit threshold, as well as the amount to be paid upon reaching the same, as well as completely deactivate automatic recharge on a renewal basis.
For security reasons, the service offered by TIM is subject to some limitations regarding the amount that can be paid: it is possible to receive at most 50 € / day for automatic top-up operations, for a maximum limit of 150 € / month total charge per line. Furthermore, it is not possible to carry out more than one automatic recharge per day on a threshold basis.
If you wish to obtain further explanations on the service, I invite you to consult the section Info and support TIM Automatic Recharge present on the dedicated page made available to the operator.
