Troubleshooting Guide

1. 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.

  1. Check that you have Data Roaming & Mobile Data turned on in your Settings.
  2. Make sure that you have changed your APN settings to match the following:
    Name: Ultra
    APN: wholesale
    User name: [leave this field blank]
    Password: [leave this field blank]
  3. Restart your phone
  4. If it's still not working, try the SIM in another phone to see if it'll work there.
If you've been using your SIM but suddenly your data has stopped working
  1. Check that you have data balance left by texting DATA to 6700
  2. Try turning your device off and on
  3. Try to remove the SIM from your device and re-insert it
  4. Check the coverage in the area you're in
  5. 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.
    Apple:
    Settings > Mobile > Mobile data options > Disable LTE > Restart
    Android:
    Settings > Connections > Mobile Networks > Network Mode > Switch to 3G/2G > Restart
It might look different depending on your device! If these instructions don't match exactly, explore your settings until you findΒ Network Mode

2. I'm having issues making calls or texts

This SIM comes with calls & SMS to US and Australian numbers.

Calling/texting Australian numbers
  1. Make sure you're using the correct country code
Dial +61 or 011 61 before the number you're dialling

3. I keep receiving spam calls

Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks of SIMs in America is the number of spam calls you may receive. There are several spam calling companies in the US that pester almost every number available! Ultra Mobile recycles old phone numbers so there might be a higher possibility that you may receive spam calls.

It's the last thing you want to be dealing with during your holiday and we wish we could stop this from happening but unfortunately, it's out of our control.

We apologise in advanced for the trouble and we recommend you just block the numbers when they call or text.
