    • Is it free for someone to call my OneSimCard number using Viber?

      Through a unique partnership with Viber, your primary OneSimCard number (+372) can be called free of charge for any Viber user! (requires activation and special dialing instructions, see below)

      HOW: When this feature is activated, Viber users can call OneSimCard numbers for free by using a special dialing format +372800XXXXXXXX, where XXXXXXXX is the rest of the OneSimCard phone number after 372. For example, a OneSimCard user with the phone number +37212345678 should be called by dialing +37280012345678.

      TO ACTIVATE: Log in to your OneSimCard account and go to the My SIM Cards menu. Scroll down to where it says "Incoming Viber Calls" and click Enable to activate this option.

      COST: The call is free for the Viber user. The cost of receiving the Viber call is the same as receiving a call through a Personal Extra Number (PEN), i.e. the regular incoming call rate in the country you are in plus 20c/min. In countries with free incoming calls, like Italy or Japan, the cost will be just 20c/min.

      PLEASE NOTE:

      • When dialing in Viber, if Viber user chooses the Estonian country code in the menu then they should just dial 800XXXXXXXX because the +372 is added automatically.
      • If the “free calls to OneSimCard from Viber” option is not activated for a particular OneSimCard number, when a Viber user dials +372800XXXXXXXX they will hear an automatic message: “The mobile phone is either switched off or out of coverage area.”
62. OneSimCard General Service Questions
    • I have an Verizon or Sprint Smart Phone ( iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, HTC, etc). Will OneSimCard work with my phone?

      Verizon and Sprint now offer dual mode - CDMA and GSM phones, which are capable of working on GSM networks. You can request Verizon and Sprint to unlock the GSM portion of the phone for international travel and they will most likely do this for you. However, Verizon and Sprint usually does not unlock phones 100% - they do this partially, so you are not able to use the phone while in USA.

      In such Verizon and Sprint phones you can get invalid message when inserting OneSimCard SIM or your phone does not find US networks. Verizon and Sprint unlock their phones in such a way that you can't use it in USA, but once you are out of the country the SIM will be accepted. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell the difference with this kind of unlocking if the phone is not unlocked or partially unlocked to work only outside of USA. In our experience, once this kind of phone leaves USA, it starts working.

    • Can I forward calls from my OneSimCard phone to another number?

      Yes. Your OneSimCard mobile number can currently be forwarded to EU, Canada, USA, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus numbers. It's 100% free to forward your OneSimCard phone number to many countries including to U.S. or Canadian numbers. Forwarding to some countries, as well as to satellite phones, will carry a forwarding charge as listed in the Rates & Coverage page on OneSimCard.com.

      To enable/disable call forwarding from your online account:

      Log in at OneSimCard.com and go to the My SIM Cards menu. Select your SIM card number and enable/disable Call Forwarding on this screen.

      To enable/disable call forwarding from your phone:

      Dial *146*081*XXXXXXXXXXXXX# and press Send/Talk (where XXXXXXXXXXXXX is the forward-to number in international format: 00+countrycode+number)

      Newer SIM cards use *81* instead of *081*

      Example: to forward to U.S. number 1-617-555-1212, dial *146*081*0016175551212# and press Send/Talk.

      If you get an "Unknown Format?" message, dial *146*81*0016175551212#

Rates are the same as if a call was made from the shore of the country you are near.
