22. Troubleshooting Questions
    • The battery in my phone does not last long? It got fully drained during the flight to Europe. Why?

      There can be a number of reasons why a battery does not hold a charge. Excluding the possibility of it being a faulty battery, there is another important factor to consider. If your phone is not registered on a roaming network, the battery will drain very quickly as the phone is constantly searching for a network to register on. So, if you get on a 6 hour flight and do not turn the phone off, by the time you land at the airport your battery will be drained and you will not be able to call back home.

      The same thing will happen in those areas with spotty or weak signal network coverage - the battery will drain very fast. It is always a good idea to have an extra battery with you when you travel abroad.

    • Is there any additional cost to create a OneSim VoIP account?

      There is no additional cost except for the fact that you need to have a compatible Personal Extra Number (PEN) active on your SIM card.
24. OneSim VoIP
    • What is required to use the OneSim VoIP mobile application?

      OneSimCard VoIP requires you to order a compatible Personal Extra Number (PEN). Most of the PENs we offer are OneSim VoIP enabled. You also need to have an Android phone with software version 4.2 or higher, or Apple device (iPhone, iPaed, iPod Touch) with iOS 6.1 or higher.

      Once you have an active OneSim VoIP enabled PEN, you will be able to see the option to create a OneSim VoIP account in the My SIM Cards menu of your online account.

25. Troubleshooting Questions
    • I have a Plus SIM and my phone will not register on a roaming network, what's wrong?

      Sometimes when moving from the USA, Canada or Mexico to another country, the SIM card will need to be reset to properly register on a new country roaming network.

      • If you have the OneSimCard Menu on your phone (it may be called Sim Application Menu on iPhones or SIM Toolkit on Androids), go to the menu, scroll down to Settings and enter Service Code 2003 and confirm, then Code 000 and confirm. For older SIM cards after this enter Service Code 1101 and confirm. Turn the phone off and then back on. 

      • If you do not have access to the OneSimCard Menu then turn off your phone, remove the battery for 20 seconds, reinstall the battery and then turn back on your phone.
26. OneSim VoIP
    • How does OneSim VoIP work when the call is received?

      When someone dials your OneSim VoIP enabled Personal Extra Number (PEN), the system will first check if your OneSimCard phone is registered with the OneSim VoIP app on a Wi-Fi network. If it is registered, the call will be sent using VoIP. If the OneSim VoIP app is not running or it is not registered on a Wi-Fi network, then the call will be sent using the standard OneSimCard roaming network and charged our standard roaming rates.

    • What are the advantages of using OneSim VoIP?

      The main advantages are significant cost savings and the ability to call from countries where there is no roaming coverage available.
      OneSim VoiP can be used from any Android or Apple ( iOS) device to make international LD calls even when you are not traveling. OneSim VoIP does not require having OneSimCard SIM being installed in the phone. OneSim VoIP can be used with Wi-Fi or 3G - no difference. You just need to have OneSimCard account with the SIM VoIP capable PEN. Calling using OneSim VoIP will cost most of the time less than any other way of calling including Skype.
      OneSim VoIP is available with all 3 types of SIM card we offer - Plus, Data & Roam and Europe & More.

    • Do I need to have a OneSimCard SIM card installed in my phone to use OneSim VoIP?

      No. OneSimCard SIM is not required to be installed in the phone for OneSim VoIP to be used. However, you do need to have OneSimCard account with a VoIP capable PEN.
29. How To Use Questions
    • How to activate and set up the mobile data service on your mobile device or tablet?

      1. Log in to your account at www.onesimcard.com using the email address and password you entered during the activation or registration of the SIM.
      2. To enable data, go to your My SIM Cards menu, select your SIM card, scroll down to Internet Data and click ‘Enable’.
      3. Turn on Data Roaming on your phone.
      4. Follow instructions for settings up the Access Point (APN) for your phone. The APN depends on the type of your SIM card.  You can try using data first without setting the APN. In most phones it will work just with Data Roaming turned on.

       For complete instruction, click on the “View programming Instructions” link in the “Internet Data" section under “My SIM Cards” menu.
30. OneSimCard General Service Questions
    • Will I get a bill for using OneSimCard service?

      No. OneSimCard service is a prepaid service. You will not be able to spend more than you put on the SIM, except when you set the automatic recharge of the SIM. There are three simple ways to add funds to the balance of the SIM: from on-line, from the mobile phone and by setting up an automatic recharge. This pertains to both - purchased SIM cards and rentals.
