My data isn't working
If you've just activated your SIM
If you've just activated your SIM and you've got a signal, you might need to check a couple of things to get your data working.
- Check that you have Data Roaming & Mobile Data turned on in your Settings.
- Make sure that you have changed your APN settings to match the following:
User name: [leave this field blank]
Password: [leave this field blank]
- Restart your phone
- If it's still not working, try the SIM in another phone to see if it'll work there.
If that is still not working check your phone settings to see if there is an LTE option and select that.
If you've been using your SIM but suddenly your data has stopped working
- Check that you have data balance left
- Try turning your device off and on
- Try to remove the SIM from your device and re-insert it
- If your phone says it's connected to LTE or 4G but the data isn't working, try to manually turn off LTE/4G to connect to 4G/3G.
Settings > Mobile > Mobile data options > Disable LTE > Restart
Settings > Connections > Mobile Networks > Network Mode > Switch to 3G/2G > Restart
I've tried everything and it's still not working

How do I find my mobile number?
This SIM is data-only so it doesn't come with a phone number! The SIM cannot make or receive calls and texts!
How do I check my balance?
You can find how much data you've used in your phone settings!
If you're using a wifi device, unfortunately, there's no way to check your usage.
How do I recharge?
As described on the website, the SIM is non-rechargeable. The only way around this is to buy multiple SIM cards and swap them out as you go.
What's Included & Things to know
How do I know if my device is unlocked?
If you bought your device outright, it's most likely unlocked!
If you're unsure, the best way to find out is to call your Aussie network provider and ask! They'll be able to unlock it for you too. This might incur a fee! 🤔
Where does this SIM work?
This SIM works on the SoftBank network in Japan.
