  • A Free Toggle SIM with every purchase (while stocks last.)

    With every full price SIM purchased (including credit) we’ll provide you with a second Toggle SIM for free (with zero credit) for your travel partner to use. The free SIM can be registered in exactly the same way and benefits from free incoming calls and local numbers as well as outgoing calls from only 3p/min as per the standard Toggle tariff. The free SIM will require a top up – minimum top up currently £20.00 and this can be kept valid ongoing through occasional use in the UK and abroad. This limited offer is subject to availability of stock.

  • How does the French SIM card work?

    All you need to do is ensure that your mobile handset is unlocked and then simply switch your UK SIM card for the French SIM card. The SIM card works on a Pay-As-You-Go basis therefore to continue to use the SIM card you need to purchase top-up vouchers online or over the phone.

    To make sure you avoid all roaming charges you must select the French profile on arrival. On your handset, go to Toggle Mobile Menu --> Toggle --> Select Mode --> Manual --> Select the country where you are and obtain a local number.
    Please note the default profile is the UK Profile. On some handsets, after changing profiles, you may need to restart your phone to activate it.

  • How do I get a local number for use abroad?

    Set up and register your new SIM before you travel. This is very easy. Firstly you need to log-in to your account:

    • Choose "Togglemobile local"
    • Register for the country you plan to visit to get a local number.
    Please allow 3 hours for the registration process to complete. (IMPORTANT: please make sure that before you register for a local Toggle number, your SIM card is inserted into the mobile phone and has network signal.) You will receive a text message with your local number and you can also see it on your account. Your new local number is valid for 30 days from the date of issue and will expire after 30 days. A new local number can be obtained upon expiry or you may opt to pay the annual retention fee of £5.00 to keep your number.

    Please note you will be required to submit your passport details on-line when you register your Toggle SIM.

  • What are the benefits of a French number over the UK number?

    In over 60 countries you can avoid roaming charges for incoming calls. Additionally, in the Toggle mobile countries, you can call nationally and internationally without any roaming charges. To benefit from this you need to have a local number from the Toggle country you are travelling to.

    E.g. If travelling to France, there are two options:

    1) You can travel without registering for a local French number. Once in France you will still receive free incoming calls but if you want to call a French number, a UK number or any other number, you will pay roaming charges.
    2) If you register for the local French number. Once in France, you will receive calls for free and you can also call the UK from 4p/min, call any French number from 3p/min, call any other toggle mobile country from 3p/min and call outside the Toggle mobile countries from 4p/min.

  • Can I transfer my current UK number to Toggle?

    Yes, you can. To transfer your existing mobile number to Toggle, simply contact your existing mobile service provider and ask for your PAC code. Once you have your PAC code, please contact Toggle Customer Services who will manage the transfer for you.

  • How much does it cost to call the French SIM from the UK?

    One of the major advantages of the Toggle French SIM card is that you can receive calls on the UK +44 (0)74… Toggle mobile number wherever you are in the world! This means that it will only cost the person calling you the price to call a UK mobile number. If you are calling the SIM on one of the foreign local numbers then please check as costs will reflect the international call rate.

    Also many of the UK mobile network operators will allow cross-network inclusive minutes to be used to call the SIM. However we would always recommend that you check with your UK network operator first to establish their rates or check if it is part of their inclusive minute bundle.

  • Can I have more than one number live and be contacted on it?

    Thanks to the unique multi-number facility, the Toggle mobile SIM card can support up to 9 numbers, all active at the same time. Which means that wherever you are, your contacts will be able to reach you on all your numbers. E.g. If you have a French number and a Danish number, they can send you texts and call you on both numbers. Remember you can always be contacted on your UK number wherever you are.

  • What is the validity on the credit and SIM card?

    • Once activated a call or top up must be made within 90 days of activation or the last call to keep the SIM, credit and number active. After 90 days of non-use the SIM, credit and number will expire and cannot be re-instated or refunded.
    • If you want to keep your foreign number longer than 30 days you can pay £5.00 a year to keep the number. This can be done online via your Toggle account annually. However, you will still need to make a call or top up the SIM once every 90 days to keep the SIM active.

  • How do I top-up?

    You can buy top-up vouchers online available from £20 per top up. All you need to do is:

    • Register your toggle French SIM card online.
