| How It Works|
| ||Do You Have an Unlocked GSM Phone?|
To use this service, you will need an unlocked GSM cell phone with the correct band. The 900 MHz frequency is used in Niger. If you purchased your GSM cell phone from a carrier it may be SIM-locked which means only SIM cards from that specific carrier can be used in your phone.
When you purchase our SIM card you will also have the option to purchase a Siemens Tri-Band World Phone for only $99, a special promotional rate only available to customers who purchase this SIM card. If you are unsure if your current phone will work with this SIM card, please either call us at 1-800-872-7626 (or from overseas at 1-703-620-0879) or consider purchasing the Siemens Tri-Band World Phone to use with our SIM card.

If airtime credit is not added during the 12th month, the SIM card will be de-activated and the phone number will be recycled.

| ||Making calls using your SIM card|
To make a call, simply dial a "Plus" (+) symbol, the country code, the phone number and then press the "Send" or "Yes" key.
Instead of putting the phone to your ear immediately, wait about two seconds and the phone will ring back, alerting you to answer the phone. Press the "Send" or "Yes" key and you will hear your call go through.
Just dial a Plus (+) symbol, the country code, the city code, and then the phone number (country code is "1" for the US) and the "Send" or "Yes" key to reach any number.
In these few seconds, the SIM card calls you back. This allows you to control the calling rate per minute and save.
Please Note: When calling from the US to your SIM card's international number, callers will have to dial "011" followed by your number. We also offer a US based number. For more information,
