51. OneSimCard General Service Questions
    • I have an Verizon or Sprint Smart Phone ( iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, HTC, etc). Will OneSimCard work with my phone?

      Verizon and Sprint now offer dual mode - CDMA and GSM phones, which are capable of working on GSM networks. You can request Verizon and Sprint to unlock the GSM portion of the phone for international travel and they will most likely do this for you. However, Verizon and Sprint usually does not unlock phones 100% - they do this partially, so you are not able to use the phone while in USA.

      In such Verizon and Sprint phones you can get invalid message when inserting OneSimCard SIM or your phone does not find US networks. Verizon and Sprint unlock their phones in such a way that you can't use it in USA, but once you are out of the country the SIM will be accepted. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell the difference with this kind of unlocking if the phone is not unlocked or partially unlocked to work only outside of USA. In our experience, once this kind of phone leaves USA, it starts working.

52. OneSim VoIP
    • Do I need to have a OneSimCard SIM card installed in my phone to use OneSim VoIP?

      No. OneSimCard SIM is not required to be installed in the phone for OneSim VoIP to be used. However, you do need to have OneSimCard account with a VoIP capable PEN.
53. OneSim VoIP
    • How do I know if the Personal Extra Number (PEN) I currently have is OneSim VoIP compatible?

      Log in to your OneSimCard account, go to the My Sim Cards menu and scroll down. If your PEN is VoIP compatible you will see an option to create a OneSim VoIP account. At this time all OneSimCard PENs are SIM VOIP capable except for UK Mobile numbers.
54. eSIM
    • How does eSIM works?

      eSIM is not a physical SIM. It is a piece of software downloaded to a compatible phone. So there is no shipping involved with delivering eSIM.


      eSIM makes your iPhone or Pixel phone to be a dual SIM phone. This means that you can use two sim cards on the phone at the same time. You can select which SIM card is used for calls and texts, and which one is used for data. You can select which sim card is to be the primary and which one not to be used. You can make these changes from the settings of your phone at any time. In short - eSIM offers greater flexibility to your eSIM compatible phone. It allows you to use the service provider of your choice - whether you are traveling or staying home.


      OneSimCard eSIM can be installed only on a single device. It can't be moved to another device, but it can be re-installed on the original device up to 10 times if required.
55. eSIM
    • How do I top up my data with eSIM?

      There are two ways you can do this:


      1. From your mobile go to ma.onesimcard.com. This provides the access to your free OneSimCard mini account. Free means that there is no need to have the SIM balance or data package on the SIM to be able to access this page in over 110 countries. Log in to your account and activate a new data package.

      2. From any computer log in to your on-line account at OneSimCard.com to order a data package.

    • Can eSIM be used for Data, Calls and Texts?

      Yes, as of March 3rd, 2020, OneSimCard eSIM can be used for Mobile Data, Voice and Texts. However, you can still use the OneSim VOIP app option with a Personal Extra Number (PEN) for additional savings on calling and texting
57. OneSim VoIP
    • Is there any additional cost to create a OneSim VoIP account?

      There is no additional cost except for the fact that you need to have a compatible Personal Extra Number (PEN) active on your SIM card.
58. OneSim VoIP
    • Does voicemail work with OneSim VoIP?

      Yes. If you are not available to answer the OneSim VoIP call or if the OneSim VoIP app is turned off, the call will be routed through our standard roaming network. If the call is not answered it will be sent to your OneSimCard voicemail box.
