    • Can I get rewarded for referring friends to OneSimCard?

      In addition, your referred friend will also receive a 5% discount on their initial order, excluding airtime.

    • How often do I need to recharge my OneSimCard account?

      Your OneSimCard global SIM card and European phone number will never expire as long as you make at least one call every 18 months. If you fail to make or receive at least one call every 18 months, your OneSimCard global SIM card and European phone number will expire and you will not be entitled to a refund even if at the time of expiration your account had a positive balance.

      However, the funds on the SIM card will expire 10 months from your last recharge and will not be refunded to you. The minimum recharge amount is $25. By simply recharging at least once every 10 months your balance will roll over. If your balance does expire, it will not be refunded to you but all you need to do to get the service working again is to log in and add funds to your SIM card. If you set up the automatic recharge, it will be canceled if you allow the funds to expire, so you will need to set automatic recharge up again once you recharge your balance.
