31. How To Use Questions
    • Do I need to change any settings on my phone when going abroad?

      Not Really. If you are planning to use Mobile Data, you will need to enable Data Roaming on your phone. Everything else in modern phones get done automatically.
32. How To Use Questions
    • How do I set up SMS text messaging on my phone?

      SMS messaging usually works without any additional setup of the phone.
      In rare cases when there are issues sending or receiving text messages, please look at the following:

      Problem with Sending SMS:

      • Incorrect SMSC number (SMS Service Center Address) in handset settings.

      SMSC number should be set as follows:

       

      1. For Standard  and Plus OneSimCard SIM: +3725099000 for all countries except:

      a. China:  +85290296747

       

      2. For the Expedition (former Data & Roam) SIM as well as for Europe & More SIM: +37256100041

       

      Special instructions for Apple Phones:

      With Apple iPhones to check SMSC:

      From the phone dialer Dial *#5005*7672# 

      You will see the SMSC set currently on the phone. 

      To change the SMSC on Iphone dial: 

      Plus and Standard SIMs: **5005*7672*+3725099000# for all countries except China and **5005*7672*+85290296747# if in China.

      Expedition (formerly Data & Roam) and Europe & More SIMs in any country: **5005*7672*+37256100041#


       

       

      If your phone requires the name of Message Center Name enter: SMSC
      SMS lifetime is short - must be at least 2 hours or set to Maximum settings.
      Try sending SMS from OneSimCard menu

       

       Problem with Receiving SMS:

      • Receiving Handset does not have enough free memory for incoming SMS.
      • Receiving Handset was turned off or out of the coverage area during SMS lifetime set on the sending phone - usually 2 hours.
      • Sender's SMS provider does not have an agreement with the receiving network.
33. How To Use Questions
    • How do I make a call using OneSimCard global cell phone service?

      To make a call:
      • Dial 00-CountryCode-AreaCode-Number and press the TALK/SEND button.
        Example: To call OneSimCard Support in the USA you would dial 00 1 617 3138888 and press TALK/SEND.
      With Europe & More SIM that does not use the callback to make a call, you will just get connected.

      With OneSimCard Plus SIM or Expedition (formerly Data & Roam) SIM:

      After pressing the TALK/SEND button you will see a variable message on the screen (for example 'Wait for call') which you can ignore and your phone will ring back in a few seconds. Answer this ring as you normally would answer any incoming call. Your call will then be connected.

      If you are unsure about how to properly dial an international number, follow this link for detailed country by country dialing instructions.

    • Can I use OneSimCard service if my phone is locked?

      Yes. There are few options available if your phone is locked to the carrier that sold you the phone.

      • Try contacting the carrier to see if they unlock it for you.

35. Ordering Questions
    • Do I need to activate the SIM card when my order is received or purchased from a retail store?

      Yes, you will need to activate the SIM card once the order is received.
