101. OneSimCard Rentals
    • When do you charge my credit card?

      Upon shipping of the rentals, we will charge your credit card the full replacement cost of the rental package.
       
      When the package is returned to OneSimCard, we will issue the credit back to the original credit card for the difference of the replacement cost and the actual cost of rentals based on the rental period ordered and the date returned.
       
      Separate charges will be made for the purchase of additional air-time at the time of recharges (air-time purchase).

    • What if I return the Rental Package, but some of the items are missing or damaged?

      You will be charged for missing or damaged items in the package. The cost of the replacement items is provided in the packing slip of the rental package.

      To avoid paying replacement costs, consider purchasing a rental insurance. View full terms and conditions here.
103. OneSimCard General Service Questions
    • What Is the Difference Between "Direct Dial" and "Callback Dial" calling?

      Direct Dial calling allows the caller to enter the international  call prefix, country calling code and telephone number and then be directly connected to the person they are calling. This is how you dial when using your regular mobile service. Direct Dial Calling is standard on the OneSimCard Europe & More.

      Callback calling also allows the caller to enter the international  call prefix, country calling code and telephone number. After the called number is entered, the user immediately receives an incoming call connecting the user to person called. Callback is very simple to use and allows for low cost calling on the OneSimCard Plus and OneSimCard Data & Roam. Callback does not increase the connection time. It is the same as with Direct Dial. Usage of the OneSimCard Direct mobile app hides the callback. 

104. OneSimCard General Service Questions
    • Can I send an SMS to or from a Common Access Number or Personal Extra Number?

      You can't send SMS to a Common Access Number (CAN). Common Access Numbers and majority of Personal Extra Numbers are for Voice Calls only.
      However, starting December 8th, 2014 all new USA and Canada Personal Extra Numbers are capable of receiving mobile SMS. Regardless of how SMS was received on OneSimCard phone - to the 372 number or the PEN, a reply from OneSimCard phone will always be delivered with the Caller ID of the main number of the SIM that starts with 372. SMS received on US or Canada PEN will incur 9 cent charge.
      We recommend that SMS senders use our free online SMS or email-to-SMS functions as described in the user manual and our FAQs.

       

       

      Note: US and Canada PEN can receive only actual mobile SMS from mobile phones. Alert and verification SMSsent from web sites like Google, Yahoo or your bank will not be delivered to US or Canada PENs due to the way these web sites send there messages. 
      If you require some alerts SMS sent from banks and other institutions, we offer special US-SMS Bank Verifcation PEN that will be able to receive SMS from mobile numbers as well as from institutions used for 2 step verification processes.
105. Troubleshooting Questions
    • I am traveling in Saudi Arabia and can receive calls, but I can't make an outgoing call. What should I do?

      Local carriers in Saudi Arabia sometimes block standard OneSimCard outgoing calls. If this happens you need to either (a) enter a compatibility code into the settings of your phone or (b) initiate your call by sending an SMS message from the regular SMS menu (not the OneSimCard menu) of your phone.

      How To Activate Compatibility Mode:

      1. Open "OneSimCard" menu
      2. Select "Settings"
      3. Agree with message by pressing "Yes"
      4. Dial digits "802" and select "OK" (screen will show message "output channel is SMS")

      Bear in mind that if you have powered your telephone down and removed and reinstalled the battery, you will need to follow the programming steps outlined above again.

      How To Deactivate Compatibility Mode:

      1. Open "OneSimCard" menu
      2. Select "Settings"
      3. Agree with message by pressing "Yes"
      4. Dial digits "801" and select "OK" (screen will show message "output channel is USSD")

      How To Dial Without Activating Compatibility Mode:

      Initiate your call by sending an SMS message from the regular SMS menu (not the OneSimCard menu) of your phone.

      To: 9146
      Message: 00 + Country Code + Number + 
      * is a star character located on the keypad

      For example, to call from Saudi Arabia to Boston USA you should go to the SMS menu of the phone and send a message:

      To: 9146
      Message: 0018574440686
      After your SMS is sent wait 3-10 seconds. You will get a callback as usual and your call will be connected to the destination number.

      Note 1: You can't send this SMS from the SMS OneSimCard menu of the phone.

      Note 2: If you see on the screen that the message has not been sent, make sure that SMS settings of your phone is complete and the SMS Center number is set to: +3725099000

       

      There are no special instructions to receive calls in these countries.

106. Troubleshooting Questions
    • I have an Apple iPhone. When I dial following your instructions it does not work. What's wrong?

      This reply does not apply to OneSimCard Europe & More SIM or newer SIM cards purchased after January 2017.
      Older SIM cards might require entering the compatibility code on your  iPhone.

      How to activate compatibility mode:

       1. Locate OneSimCard Menu.

       On iPhones it is called SIM Applications menu and is located under Settings- Phone menu

      1. Open "OneSimCard" menu ( SIM Applications)
      2. Select "Settings
      Newer SIM Cards: Select Compatibility option and make sure "On" is selected
      Older SIM Cards: After selecting Settings:
      1. Agree with message by pressing "Yes"
      2. Dial digits "1101" and select "OK" (Screen will show "CC OptionX: ON" message)

      Bear in mind that if you have powered your telephone down, and have removed and reinstalled the battery, you will need to follow the programming steps outlined above, again.


      We strongly recommend you to watch very short video tutorials for iPhone that will help you to understand how to make calls, SMS and data on your OneSimCard iPhone.
      If your phone is not Jail-Broken, you still can use OneSimCard Assist app available from iTunes. This app will help you to dial numbers properly by correcting mis-dialed numbers and will allow easy access to OneSimCard functions like checking balance, recharging your SIM, activating discounts and others.

      These videos are available in the Help Menu of your OneSimCard Portal. You need to log in to your OneSimCard account first and then proceed to the Help Menu to be able to access these videos.

      Again, this is for older SIM Cards. Newer SIM cards do not require entering any codes in iPhone or other types of phones.
