Requirements for Service
In order to use this SIM you need an unlocked device.
How do you know if you have an unlocked device?
Insert the SIM card into your device. If your device indicates a provider (eg Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile)
then your device is unlocked. If your device displays a different message, your device is locked.
In addition, your device needs to support the correct frequency in order to call and / or use the internet.
Worldwide providers use of several GSM networks (850, 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz). The GSM1800
network is widely used in Europe, the GSM850 network often in South America and Asia and the
GSM1900 network especially in North America. To use your GSM anywhere in the world you will need a
quad-band phone.
For "faster" 3G, Internet Providers use the UMTS network (850/900/1700-AWS 1900/2100 Mhz.)
To access a list of all 3G frequencies by country please visit: / wiki /
4G Internet. 4G stands for 4th generation and is the fourth generation of mobile telecommunications
standards. It is the successor to the 3G standard. 4G is still limited globally available.

Note: "Unlocked" means that your phone supports SIM cards from provider that are allowed. Often a
provider locks a cellular phone
Unlocking your Device
Unlocking your device is an easy process, it simply involves dialing a code on your phone’s keypad.
Most mobile phone operators will give you the unlock code and step-by-step instructions right over the
phone. Call customer service and inform them you’ll be traveling out of the country and you need the
„unlock code“.
Apple iPhone users can visit to unlock their devices for FREE.

SIM Card Validity
If you do not make a Credit Top Up to your Account, or use your SIM Card for 6 months, your Account
and any outstanding Credit on your Account will be suspended. If this happens you may reactivate your
Account by calling Customer Care. We will reactivate your Account, and any previously unused credit you
had on your Account will be available to you again.
After your Account has been suspended, you have a further 6 months during which you can have it
reactivated by calling Customer Care. If you do not ask us to reactivate your Account we will assume that
you no longer need it (as you will not have used it for 12 months) and it will be fully deactivated. This
means your SIM Card will no longer work, you will lose any unused Credit you may have had, and your
Mobile Phone number can be claimed back by Tesco Mobile and given to another customer.
Tesco has teamed up with 02 to give you the best value for money mobile phone service on the Irish
market. Working on the O2 network, Tesco Mobile has 99.6% population coverage, with the great pricing
that you expect from Tesco.
When you buy a Tesco Mobile phone or SIM, you're already set up to use your phone abroad. Note that
when your SIM has €0,00 credit you need to top up first.
