122. Troubleshooting Questions
    • I just activated my SIM card and can't make a successful test call. What's wrong?

      If you just activated your SIM card and can not make a test call by following the instructions in the user manual, you will likely just need to power off the phone and power it back on again. The phone should automatically re-register with one of our partner networks. Remember, if you answer the test call when it rings you will be charged for the call.
      We strongly recommend you to watch very short video tutorials that will help you to understand how to make calls, SMS and data on your OneSimCard Phone.

      These videos are available in the Help Menu of your OneSimCard Portal. You need to log in to your OneSimCard account first and then proceed to the Help Menu to be able to access these videos.

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

    • Can I move balances from one SIM card to another?

      We allow moving balances from one SIM card to another in the following cases:
      • Corporate Accounts - anytime.
      • Individual Accounts - only when a SIM card is lost or stolen. The remaining balance from your lost or stolen SIM card can be transferred to another SIM card on your account or you can order a new SIM card if you would like to keep your original European number from the lost SIM.
