What if I'm using a WiFi device?

If you're planning to use the SIM in a WiFi device, you'll need to insert the SIM in your phone first in order to activate it.

Easy peasy! 🙌

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 your APN is on automatic
  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
  2. Try turning your device off and on
  3. Try to remove the SIM from your device and re-insert it
  4. If your phone says it's connected to 4G but the data isn't working, try to manually turn off 4G to connect to 3G.


Settings > Mobile > Mobile data options > 3G > Restart


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 find Network Mode
