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 my phone number?

This SIM is data-only so it doesn't come with a phone number! The SIM cannot make or receive calls and texts!

What does in-built VPN mean?

This SIM comes with an in-built VPN which will allow you to use your phone as you would at home. You'll have access to Facebook, Messenger, Google products and other apps!

You don't have to download a VPN to use these apps when you're using data.

The VPN will not work if you're connected to wifi in China!
