Securely receive SMS verification online on your private mobile number or email.

With growing concerns about online security today, more and more companies use 2-factor authentication (2FA) or 2-step Verification (2SV) for their services access.

The secondary security layer, which comes in addition to entering your login + password combo, helps protect your account from unauthorized access. The extra verification commonly involves a security code sent to you via SMS.

 

Account SMS Verification for Travelers and Expats and temporary residents.

2FA / 2SV is often a default security check when opening an account online.  SMS verification may also trigger automatically, when you register or login from a new unrecognized location. This can be a real problem for international travelers or expats who may not have a mobile number capable of securely receiving that verification SMS.

Another affected group is temporary visitors like business people, temporary workers and students. They often have to open bank and others accounts in the US. However, after their departure they may no longer be able to access their accounts online.

OneSimCard can help. With OneSimCard you can securely receive verification SMS anywhere in the world regardless of your location, IP address or device. OneSimCard provides you with a special US mobile number that allows you to forward Verification SMS to any email address or any other mobile number of your choice.

The mobile number works with many different companies like WhatsApp, US banks and many other financial institutions like PayPal.

 

Online Management without any SIM card.

OneSimCard Mobile SMS Verification numbers do not require any physical SIM cards. You can manage SMS forwarding completely online. Change your SMS forwarding preferences as many times as you need. Simply log in to your secure online web account and make your changes.

Existing OneSimCard customers can easily add these verification SMS numbers in the Personal Extra Numbers (PEN) section of their web account.

 

Security is a priority

Many free online services with disposable group phone numbers offer questionable security for your verification message. Their numbers are often shared with other people and your verification code (if it arrives) can be visible publically. This is a dangerous way to verify important accounts.

In contrast, OneSimCard verification phone numbers are completely secure. They   utilize reputable domestic networks to rout your messages every time. Nothing is posted publically and your message is forwarded to the destination you specified.

OneSimCard Assists Stranded Travelers by Slashing eSIM Prices

In Response to the Global COVID-19 Virus Pandemic & the Vast Numbers of Stranded Travelers, OneSimCard Cuts the Cost of eSIMs for Global Roaming by 50%

In an effort to assist the thousands of stranded travelers OneSimCard today announced they are slashing the cost of eSIM cards by 50% through April 30, 2020. Because the eSIM is available for immediate download & there is no need to ship a physical SIM, displaced travelers can easily stay in touch with loved ones back home without having to wait for shipping or having to go to a store to purchase a physical SIM; the entire transaction can be accomplished from the safety of one’s hotel room. The eSIM is initially available on compatible devices such as iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS, XS Max, and XR, and the Google Pixel 3a, 4 and 4 XL. Full details available here: onesimcard.com/esim. Promo Code for 50% discount is “ESIM50”.

OneSimCard eSIM provides Data, Voice and SMS connectivity in over 160 countries. The OneSimCard eSIM has the advantage of accessing multiple networks in many countries for a more reliable mobile connection. eSIM service can be used either as pay-as-you-go or with optional discount data plans for high volume users. OneSimCard also offers the option of additional local phone numbers in over 60 countries. Customers will also have the ability to use their smartphone as a hotspot enabling multiple devices to enjoy 4G speeds (where available) at no additional charge. Additionally, customers will still be able to use the OneSim VOIP App, available on Google Play and the Apple App Store, for access to OneSimCard’s highly discounted VOIP voice and SMS service.

eSIM, or Embedded SIM, is the latest disruption in the mobile connectivity industry for consumer devices and represents a shift from the traditional physical SIM on which most GSM compatible devices depend for connectivity. eSIM technology is expected to fully replace the physical SIM card in mobile devices in the not-too-distant future because eSIM has many benefits. Consumers will save shipping costs and delivery time by simply downloading the eSIM using a QR code. They can easily switch between providers before, and after, travelling without needing to replace the plastic SIM, & they can now have several profiles on their device (e.g. one for work and one for personal use) –turning their device into a dual SIM phone.

“As a leader in the global roaming market, we felt obligated to the vast number of stranded travelers across the world, and our department heads brainstormed how we can play a part in helping these travelers stay in touch with their loved ones back home,” said OneSimCard CEO Alex Filippov. He added, “We are very concerned about the safety of all the citizens of the world and if we can help families stay in touch while family members are displaced abroad, we are willing to do our part.”

OneSimCard Adds Voice and SMS Capability to International eSIM Service

International Voice and SMS capabilities on eSIM allows customers to enjoy significant savings while traveling overseas with their eSIM enabled mobile device.

OneSimCard, Inc. today announced the addition of Voice and SMS functionality on its worldwide eSIM roaming service for international travelers. This update enables all OneSimCard international eSIMs with voice calling and SMS messaging to existing eSIM data service. The eSIM is initially available on compatible devices such as iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS, XS Max, and XR, and the Google Pixel 3a, 3 XL, 4 and 4 XL. Additional devices will be added as compatible devices become commercially available.

At launch, the travel eSIM was limited to data access only, but this enhancement makes OneSimCard one of the only International Roaming services to offer voice, SMS & data on eSIM, allowing customers to enjoy significant savings of up to 85% on all three services (voice, SMS and data). Another great feature was added to the eSIM which allows customers to add a local secondary phone number and make and receive calls and send SMS messages from their local number.

OneSImCard users also have the advantage of accessing multiple networks in many countries for a more reliable mobile connection. They will also have the ability to use their smartphone as a hotspot enabling multiple devices to enjoy 4G speeds (where available) at no additional charge. Additionally, customers will still be able to use the OneSim VOIP App, available on Google Play and the Apple App Store, for access to OneSimCard’s highly discounted VOIP voice and SMS service.

OneSimCard’s CEO, Alex Filippov, commented, “The launch Voice and SMS on our eSIM solution is a major addition to eSIM, and we expect tremendous adoption in the months and years to come. We are extremely excited about this new functionality for our global travelers.” Mr. Filippov went on to say, “OneSimCard has always stayed on the forefront of technology and we have already seen many customers switching to eSIM. This will allow our users to enjoy the same great service they are used to from our traditional global roaming SIM.”

Getting the Most Out of Your Travel eSIM from OneSimCard

eSIMeSIMs are the latest “disruption” in the SIM card industry and they have many benefits for users. But how do you know if you are getting the most out of your eSIM’s functionality? We want to share one of the biggest benefits of having an eSIM loaded in your iPhone or Pixel phone – creating a personal hotspot to share your data with other devices.

I recently took a trip to Croatia and Slovenia with my wife and I had the OneSimCard international eSIM loaded into my Pixel phone. My wife carries a Samsung 8 and doesn’t have eSIM available. While we were in hotels and other spots with good Wi-Fi connectivity, she and I both took advantage of those connections for our data connection (especially so she could stream her favorite True Crime television shows). However, while we were away from those free Wi-Fi spots, I enabled my Pixel to share its data connection with my wife so we could both take advantage of the 4G internet connection at OneSimCard’s inexpensive international roaming rates. This allowed she and I to both stay connected and never miss a shareable moment with our friends and family at home (or to get directions back to our hotel when we got lost…happens a lot with us!).

Creating a personal hotspot (sometimes also called tethering) your eSIM enabled iPhone or Pixel phone is very simple. Here are the steps for each (NOTE: Make sure you have the OneSimCard eSIM profile turned on):

For iPhone:

  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone 11

Go to the Settings Menu, then tap “Personal Hotspot”

On the next page, turn on “Allow Others to Join”:

Your iPhone is now discoverable by Wi-Fi and all they need is your hotspot password to share your data connection.

 

For Pixel Phone:

  • Pixel 3a
  • Pixel 4

Swipe down from the top of the screen and then top Hotspot:

Your Pixel is now discoverable by Wi-Fi and all they need is your hotspot password to share your data connection. You can obtain your hotspot password by holding down on the Hotspot icon for about a second.

International eSIM coming soon to eSIM enabled iPhones

Recently, we have been getting many requests for international eSIMs for eSIM enabled iPhones.

If you aren’t aware of this technology, eSIM is a short for embedded SIM, where SIM is an acronym for Subscriber Identity Module. So, an eSIM is an Embedded Subscriber Identity Module.

How is eSIM different from a regular SIM?

We all know what a SIM card is — the little thing that allows your phone to connect to the network. When you buy our SIM card, you pop out your SIM card, drop ours into the phone, and voila!—cellular service is up and running. That’s going to change with eSIM, because as the “embedded” part of the name suggests, this is actually built into the phone’s mainboard.

The eSIM we provide is simply a QR code that will act as a second SIM on your phone. At launch, we will be supporting only data connectivity on eSIM. It will be compatible with the following iPhone eSIM capable models:  iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

We expect to have eSIM launched and available for purchase in the next few weeks. Look for a separate communication that announces the launch!
