What if I need help?

Our SIMs generally have no issues, however, nothing is a guarantee. Sometimes SIMs have technical issues that need troubleshooting.
If you land and your SIM does not work as expected then you need to follow these steps:
Step 1. Ensure you have followed all steps in your SIMs digital PDF guide.
Step 2. Reach out to us for support via Facebook live chat or email us at hello@simsdirect.com.au. We are active between 10am - 6pm AEDT
Step 3. If our technical support cannot resolve your issue you will be entitled to our Money Back Guarantee and we will help you find a local option for the rest of your trip

How can I make calls & texts?

This SIM does not come with calls or texts. However, you can use your data to make calls and texts.

We highly recommend using data applications as a smart alternative.

How do I check my balance?

To check your balance, simply dial *118*#50

If you are wanting to call internationally:

We recommend using Skype. You can purchase credit and use it to make international calls to any number in the world at very affordable rates that are much cheaper than international call rates. $10 will get you roughly 250 minutes worth of international calls. It's just like using your mobile but it uses internet data to make the call. Very handy! Works for landlines and mobile numbers.

If you are wanting to call and text mobile numbers internationally for free:

We recommend using any of the following free apps:

All of these apps are handy to use while travelling.

No recharges?

If you need more data or a longer duration, you will need to purchase multiple SIM cards and swap them out as you go. If you want more than 1 SIM card, you can checkout with the code: MULTISIM10 for 10% off your order.

How do I find my new number?

You can find your mobile number when the SIM is inserted & active by going to your contacts and finding: My Number.

Is this enough data for me?

6GB of data over 15 days is suitable for web browsing, Google maps, emails, social media and data messaging.

If you are planning on streaming videos or downloading large files then you may want to grab a second SIM card for more data.

Brilliant product

This SIM was very easy to activate as per the instructions, and was perfect for using while travelling around Japan. I kept my social media up to date, navigated myself around, and googled useful Japanese phrases on the go

I’d use it again

After travelling in Japan in 2017 and not finding bookmarked restaurants I made a note to have a data sim next time. The sim did all that I wanted and I used about 4gb of 6. It was very useful in locating places I wanted to find. I’d use it again.

  • What was the highlight of your trip? Seeing Mount Fuji again with lots of snow this time.
  • What's your device model? (Eg. iPhone 7+) Used a spare burner.

Japan Sim

Absolutely no problems at all using the Sim when we arrived in Japan. Worked first time and instructions provided were accurate. Hardest thing was getting the cover off my phone.

Great, easy

I travel a lot, and have lived in a few different countries. Worrying about getting a sim is always a concern. I've tried a few different ways of doing it, and this was by far the easiest. I was worried at first in the FAQ they said I might have to mess around with the APN (which for me always seems complicated and annoying) but that wasnt the case for the trip, I landed in Japan, put the Sim in and my data was ready to go (android phone). I have other trips planned later in the year and will most likely be going through this service again.
