Can data only plan SIMs still can receive text and calls?

Hello

When i activated my tablet, i was told i can put the sim into a phone and if i need to make call or send text, i am able to do so with additional per per use costs. $1 per minute for call for example.

 

But i cannot make or receive calls.

Please advise.

Hey @Cawtau!

 

Yep, this is something that is relatively new.

 

This applies to all of our newer data-only plans released after March 12th. 2019. We're simplifying things. These plans are now strictly for data use only. All calling and SMS is blocked. 

 

@snowweiwei1, What device are you using? Does rebooting your device change anything?

Hi @smrtby28,

 

I have looked into the situation and sadly there are no options available to allow incoming texts on our data-only plans.

 

We do offer wide selection of data and text plans starting as low as $15 which would allow you to use that feature.

 

You can find more information here
