41. How To Use Questions
    • Can I check my Voice Mail from a phone other than my OneSimCard phone?

      Yes. You can access the Voice Mail from other phones.

      First you need to set up a voicemail password by either calling from your OneSimCard phone or logging in to your account and clicking on the Voicemail link.

      Once the password is set up, you can dial voice mail access number:

      Toll Free access number for customers in the U.S. or Canada to retrieve voicemail for free: 1-866-703-4770

      Local U.S. number for worldwide customers to retrieve voicemail: 1-213-805-2905

      New Online Voicemail Feature: You can now listen to voicemail for free by logging in to your account and clicking on the Voicemail link. There, you can also set voicemail to be emailed to you as an audio file and change passwords and other settings.

      IMPORTANT NOTE: Voicemail messages will be automatically purged from your inbox after one month, so please be sure to save the content of any important messages before they are deleted.
      This does not apply to DataMax SIM cards
42. Troubleshooting Questions
    • I have an Apple iPhone. When I dial following your instructions it does not work. What's wrong?

      This reply does not apply to OneSimCard Europe & More SIM or newer SIM cards purchased after January 2017.
      Older SIM cards might require entering the compatibility code on your  iPhone.

      How to activate compatibility mode:

       1. Locate OneSimCard Menu.

       On iPhones it is called SIM Applications menu and is located under Settings- Phone menu

      1. Open "OneSimCard" menu ( SIM Applications)
      2. Select "Settings
      Newer SIM Cards: Select Compatibility option and make sure "On" is selected
      Older SIM Cards: After selecting Settings:
      1. Agree with message by pressing "Yes"
      2. Dial digits "1101" and select "OK" (Screen will show "CC OptionX: ON" message)

      Bear in mind that if you have powered your telephone down, and have removed and reinstalled the battery, you will need to follow the programming steps outlined above, again.


      We strongly recommend you to watch very short video tutorials for iPhone that will help you to understand how to make calls, SMS and data on your OneSimCard iPhone.
      If your phone is not Jail-Broken, you still can use OneSimCard Assist app available from iTunes. This app will help you to dial numbers properly by correcting mis-dialed numbers and will allow easy access to OneSimCard functions like checking balance, recharging your SIM, activating discounts and others.

      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.

      Again, this is for older SIM Cards. Newer SIM cards do not require entering any codes in iPhone or other types of phones.
43. Troubleshooting Questions
    • I just arrived in a foreign country and my phone is not working, what should I do?

      If you left your phone on during your flight or cruise then you should fully power down and restart your phone. Once your phone powers back on it should automatically select an available roaming network.

      If your phone is not a quad-band phone, please make sure that the bands of your phone are those required in the country of your travel. You can look it up here.
      In some countries like in USA turning off 3G mode of the phone will make it quicker for the phone to register on the network.
44. How To Use Questions
    • 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, Univesal and eSIM World that do not use the callback to make a call, you will just get connected.
       
      With OneSimCard Plus SIM or Expedition (formerly Data & Roam) SIMs:

      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.

      If you are unsure about how to properly dial an international number, follow this link for detailed country by country dialing instructions.

      For Physical 3-in-1 DataMax, and DataMax eSIM cards, you can place calls using our low cost OneSIM VoIP service. OneSim VoIP costs much less than traditional voice roaming.

    • I have more than one Personal Extra Number (PEN). Can I use different PENs for OneSim VoIP?

      If you have more than one OneSim VoIP enabled PEN you can switch between these PENs for the purpose of the OneSim VoIP account. This option is available in the My SIM Cards menu in your online account.
46. OneSim VoIP
    • I can make calls through OneSim VoIP. However incoming calls are going through my roaming SIM. What's wrong?

      If your incoming calls are not being routed through the OneSim VoIP app then you are either not connected to Wi-Fi or the OneSim VoIP app is not active.

      Please make sure to check your phone's sleep settings, as they are usually preset to have Wi-Fi turn off when the phone enters sleep mode. To prevent this and to keep OneSim VoIP active for incoming calls, find the settings in your phone and set it so Wi-Fi does not turn off when the phone enters sleep mode.

      Note: if the OneSim VoIP logo on the top of your phone display is gray then you will not be able to receive calls through the application. When the logo is yellow that means you are connected and can receive calls through OneSim VoIP.
47. OneSim VoIP
    • 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 8 or higher, or Apple device (iPhone, iPad, 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.

48. OneSim VoIP
    • Is text messaging available on the OneSim VoIP App?

      OneSimCard SIM VoIP users with US and Canadian numbers may now send and receive text messages over the OneSim VoIP app on iPhone and Android. The cost to sending a message is $0.05 per text to most countries. Receiving message is $0.05.  

       

      OneSimCard SIM VoIP users with US and Canadian numbers may now send and receive text messages over the OneSim VoIP app on iPhone. The cost to send or receive each message is $0.05. 

49. OneSim VoIP
    • When I make a call using OneSim VoIP the quality of the call is not as good as the quality of the regular roaming connection. Can this be improved?

      The quality of a OneSim VoIP call is only defined by the quality of your Wi-Fi connection. This is the part of the connection that we can not control. Quality of the Wi-Fi connection is defined by many parameters, rather than just by the speed of the connection. With a good Wi-Fi connection the quality of the call will be similar to using our regular roaming network.
50. Ordering Questions
    • When my order will be shipped?

      Sim card orders placed during business hours will be shipped the next business day. The only exceptions are phones that are out of stock. In this case you will be notified about delayed shipping during the purchase.
