1. Rates and Cost Questions
    • Will I get a bill for using OneSimCard service?

      No. OneSimCard service is a prepaid service. You will not be able to spend more than you put on the SIM, except when you set the automatic recharge of the SIM. There are three simple ways to add funds to the balance of the SIM: from on-line, from the mobile phone and by setting up an automatic recharge. This pertains to both - purchased SIM cards and rentals.
2. Rates and Cost Questions
    • How much does it cost to receive a call with OneSimCard?

      Receiving calls is free in over 150 countries when received on your primary European phone number, including in most of Europe. To receive a call on your U.S. number or other Personal Extra Number, there is an additional per minute rate added. View all international cell phone rates.

      If you receive a call through a Common Access Number or Personal Extra Number (such as a U.S. number) there is an additional charge of 20c/min. In countries with free incoming calls this would be your only charge per call.

      All incoming SMS text messages are free to receive when received on your primary European number. Add 9 cent per SMS when receiving text on US or Canada PEN.

    • What is required to use the OneSim VoIP mobile application?

      OneSimCard VoIP requires you to order a compatible Personal Extra Number (PEN). Most of the PENs we offer are OneSim VoIP enabled. You also need to have an Android phone with software version 4.2 or higher, or Apple device (iPhone, iPaed, iPod Touch) with iOS 6.1 or higher.

      Once you have an active OneSim VoIP enabled PEN, you will be able to see the option to create a OneSim VoIP account in the My SIM Cards menu of your online account.

    • What are the advantages of using OneSim VoIP?

      The main advantages are significant cost savings and the ability to call from countries where there is no roaming coverage available.
      OneSim VoiP can be used from any Android or Apple ( iOS) device to make international LD calls even when you are not traveling. OneSim VoIP does not require having OneSimCard SIM being installed in the phone. OneSim VoIP can be used with Wi-Fi or 3G/4G - no difference. You just need to have OneSimCard account with the SIM VoIP capable PEN. Calling using OneSim VoIP will cost most of the time less than any other way of calling.
      OneSim VoIP is available with the following SIM cards: Plus, Expedition (formerly Data & Roam) and Europe & More.

9. Troubleshooting Questions
    • Does iPhone Hotspot work with OneSimCard?

      Yes. All unlocked iPhones' Hotspot feature works with OneSimCard SIM.

       
      There are a few settings to make sure for this to function properly on your iPhone:
      1. Settings - Cellular - Cellular Data - ON
      2. Settings - Cellular - Data Roaming - ON
      3. Settings - Cellular - Cellular Data Network - Cellular Data - APN = APN will be set automatically
      4. Settings - Wi-Fi - ON
      5. Settings - Personal Hotspot - ON. 
      After turning the Hotspot on, you should stay on the Personal Hotspot screen of your iPhone for SSID of your phone to show up on other Wi-Fi devices, so you can get connected. After you connected to the Hotspot, you can leave the screen. Alternatively, you can always use Bluetooth or USB connection to provide the internet access from your OneSimCard iPhone Hotspot to your other devices.
10. Troubleshooting Questions
    • I have a OneSimCard SIM and my phone will not register on a roaming network, what's wrong?

      Sometimes when moving from the USA, Canada or Mexico to another country, the SIM card will need to be reset to properly register on a new country roaming network.

      • If you have the OneSimCard Menu on your phone (it may be called Sim Application Menu on iPhones or SIM Toolkit on Androids), go to the menu, scroll down to Settings and enter Service Code 2003 and confirm, then Code 000 and confirm. For older SIM cards after this enter Service Code 1101 and confirm. Turn the phone off and then back on. 

      • If you do not have access to the OneSimCard Menu then turn off your phone, remove the battery for 20 seconds, reinstall the battery and then turn back on your phone.
