Tips and hints

Configuration

  • If your phone prompts you to accept new carrier settings, be sure to say yes!

  • Remember you must have an unlocked GSM phone to use the service.

  • For 4G / LTE service within the United States your phone must support network frequencies of 1700 MHz and 2100 MHz.

Be sure you to check your APN settings

It may be necessary to configure the APN of the operator for your phone's data network to function. If you cannot access data after inserting the SIM, then simply follow the APN configuration instructions that were delivered along with your SIM chip, or consult the FAQ here for the operator SIM you purchased.

  • You can use one of the many sites on the web to check how to configure your phone. Just select the manufacturer and model of phone, and then the operator you will be using.

Dual SIM

If your phone is a dual-SIM model, please remove the SIM from your home country and leave only the Travel Mobile SIM you purchased in slot 1 (bottom Tray 1).

WhatsApp

You do not need to register your new phone number to use WhatsApp.

  • Wait until you arrive in your destination.

  • When you open WhatsApp the app will identify a new network and a new number, and will ask if you want to update the telephone number.

  • We recommend that you choose NOT to UPDATE, so all of your existing conversations and groups will be kept.

Data usage and monitoring

We suggest that you install an application to keep track of your data use and identify which applications consume data. There are several options available, for example My Data Manager, which has a user-friendly interface and supports multiple languages.

  • The app performs monitoring of all processes on the phone that are making use of the Internet connection, and can help identify if the data plan purchased will meet your needs based on your normal data consumption.

  • The app also gives you the option to customize notifications, view historical data consumption and assess which applications consume more data.

How to reset your network settings with your iPhone
