      Once you have money in your fund, then you can add funds to the phone service by one of the following methods:

      To recharge from your onesimcard.com portal:
      1. Go to Recharge Menu and recharge your SIM
        or
      2. Set up auto-recharge in Recharge Settings Menu

      To recharge from the phone using 1SIM Fund:

      Before being able to add money using 1SIM Fund from the phone, you need to log in to your onesimcard.com portal and create a PIN in 1SIM FUND menu.

      To recharge from the phone:

        You will see 'Please enter PIN' on the screen.
        Enter 4 digit 1SIM Fund PIN + * + Amount + press the OK.

        You would dial 8654*50 and press OK. In few seconds you will get a confirmation message with your new balance.
      • Alternatively you can do the same from the main dial menu of the phone by dialing: 098+PIN+*+Amount+ Talk (Send) button.

    • There is no OneSimCard Menu (SIM Toolkit) in my Android phone. How can I fix this?

      Some recent Android upgrades to versions 4.2.1 and 4.2.2 have a bug causing the OneSimCard Menu, labeled as SIM Toolkit, to be disabled.

      If you do not see the SIM Toolkit app in your Android phone, please try doing the following:

      Go to Settings>Security>Setup SIM Card Lock>Lock SIM Card. It will ask for the default SIM PIN. Enter 0000. Power off the phone and turn it back on. The SIM Toolkit app will then become available, though it might take 1-2 minutes for the phone to display it.

      On Android version 5.1 go to Settings > SIM Cards > SIM Toolkit

      Once you have access to the SIM Toolkit, select it, scroll down to Settings, enter 1101 and press confirm. Your phone will now be able to dial normally.
