Important

YOUR MOBILE PHONE MUST BE UNLOCKED TO FUNCTION WITH GeoSIM™.

Getting Started

  1. Insert GeoSIM™ into your unlocked and compatible mobile phone
  2. Switch on your phone
  3. Enter your PIN
  4. Make your calls

Making A Call

  1. You must have credit on your account to make calls
  2. ALWAYS dial numbers using the full international dialling code (even if dialling in country or within the UK) e.g. +44 7624 xxxxxx (some phones may not need the + before the country code). Do not include any preceding zeros in the area code. E.g. to call a London number dial +44207 xxx xxxx NOT +440207.
  3. After dialling the number, there will be a short pause as the service rings you back to connect your call. You simply answer the call in the normal manner and wait to be connected. IGNORE ANY MESSAGES THAT THE PHONE MAY DISPLAY DURING THIS PROCESS. THIS IS NORMAL OPERATION

Receiving Calls

For someone to call you from outside of the UK they must dial +44 7624 xxxxxx. If someone is calling you from within the UK, they can dial 07624 xxxxxx.

Trouble Shooting

I cannot make a call...

If your SIM will not make outgoing calls it can be for a number of reasons:

No call credit on your account

Add call credit.

You may be dialling incorrectly

Make sure you do not add any prefix 0's before the country code or leading 0' on the area code. You MUST Always dial the country code you are calling, even if calling in country

Incompatible handset

If your handset is receiving calls OK it could be that your handset is not fully compatible with GeoSIM. Try dialling *125*1*countrycodeandnumber# followed by the send key. Remember to use the # key at the end.

No Roaming coverage in the country you are in

Use a Local SIM in your handset and use the SMS call back trigger and forward your GeoSIM phone number to your local SIM. (see full user guide for details.)

I cannot log into my shopping Account to Top Up or purchase another SIM

Make sure you are entering the correct email address and your Original SIM PIN when logging in to your shopping account to top up your call credit or purchase another GeoSIM.
