    • What is 1SIM FUND?

      The OneSimCard Money Fund allows you to pay for OneSimCard services by means other than credit cards and also by Visa and Master Cards enrolled in the credit card security programs:

      Once you deposit money into your OneSimCard Money Fund through one of above methods, you can use this fund to recharge your SIM(s), order a second number, or make any other payment for orders placed at OneSimCard.com.

      OneSimCard Money Fund additions are non-refundable. However, the money you put into the fund does not expire. There are no fees applied to the fund maintenance either.

      Example 1

      You are in Kenya and can't pay using a credit card. You would like to purchase a OneSimCard SIM for $39.95, and also be able to add airtime (recharge) later. You will also need to pay for shipping.

      First step - you need to add funds to your OneSimCard Money Fund. It's up to you what amount you would like to send us, but it should be large enough to cover your purchases. Let's say you posted $200.00 to your OneSimCard Money Fund.

      Once the money is received, we will send you a confirmation email. Then you can log in to your OneSimCard.com account and place your order. It will be instantly processed and the money will be deducted from your OneSimCard Money Fund account.

      Example 2

      You have 3 SIM cards and 3 personal second numbers.

      You want to set up auto-recharge for SIM1 and SIM2 in $25 increments and the third one in $50 increments. You also want to extend (recharge) your Second Numbers every month.

      Let's say you put $500 into your OneSimCard Money Fund account. Now you can set up $25 auto-recharges on your 2 SIMs and $50 auto-recharge for your 3rd SIM, as well as and automatic extension of your second number.

      This option allows many users around the word to take advantage of OneSimCard.com services without using a credit card.

      Example 3

      You use your verified PayPal account to add money to the 1SIMCard Money Fund. The transaction from PayPal is instant. Funds will be instantly added to your 1SIM Card Money Fund, and then you can use the Money Fund to make any purchase at OneSimCard.com.

    • 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.

63. How To Use Questions
    • Can I use a OneSimCard phone to send an SMS message?

      Of course you can! Simply send and receive SMS texts according to your phone's user manual or from the OneSimCard Menu. Receiving SMS is always free. Sending an SMS (text message) is $0.15 - $1.50 depending on the country.

      SMS messages sent to a OneSimCard phone should always be sent to the main OneSimCard mobile number rather than to an optional Extra Number, with the exception of new SMS enabled numbers in USA, Canada and UK Mobile available since Jun 3rd, 2014. When replying from OneSimCard phone to the SMS received on USA or Canada SMS capable PEN using Europe & More sim or the Expedition SIM, the main number of the SIM that starts with 372 will be displayed on the text receiver phone. With the Universal SIM, you can select what caller ID will be shown on the SMS receiving party phone.

      You can also send SMS messages from OneSim VOIP app at much lower rates.


      You can also send a free SMS message to any OneSimCard customer from our web site or by sending email to 372XXXXXXXX@sms.onesimcard.com, where 372XXXXXXXX is the OneSimCard primary mobile phone number. The maximum number of daily SMS sent to the SIM over email or web is 25.

      Please bear in mind that message should be sent in English characters. In addition, it should not be longer than 160 characters including spaces.


      These 2 options of sending SMS by email provide completely free way of communicating, as it is usually free for you to send the email and costs nothing for the OneSimCard customer to receive a text message.
