The following is a list of frequently asked questions about the Vectone Mobile PAYG service. If you have a question that is not answered here, our Customer Services team are happy to help.
2. I lost my SIM card. Can I move my old number to a new
Call customer service and arrange for your old number to be moved to a new SIM card. You may be asked security questions in order to verify that you are the account holder. Please be advised that it costs £1 to do a SIM swap. The amount will be deducted from your balance.
3. How to send MMS?
Multi Media messages (MMS) allow you to send and receive pictures and audio such as a video clip or animation. At present we can only offer this service for between Vectone Mobile customers and a limited number of other destinations. We are working hard to add more networks in the near future.
In order to use MMS, you must activate Internet on your MMS capable handset and also, don't forget to enable data and MMS while roaming.
If you have checked all of the above and you are still having problems then please contact our customer support who will be happy to assist you.back to top
5. What is 'verified by Visa' and 'Mastercard SecureCode'?
Because we take security seriously at Vectone, we use the official Verified by Visa and MasterCard Secure Code secure payment schemes to process your card payment, adding an extra level of protection for online card payments.
During the payment process, you'll be securely forwarded to your bank's website for verification. The code you use will be known only to yourself and your bank – just like when you tap your PIN into the card reader in a shop. Once your bank has authenticated the transaction, you'll be redirected back to Vectone's website to finish your purchase.back to top
6. How do I sign up to 'Verified by Visa' and 'Mastercard
If you have not yet registered your card for 3D secure payments you will be asked to do so during the authentication process - you'll just need to confirm a few security details with your own bank and set a password or PIN for future use. Once you've done this, you can use this extra level of security on any website that uses Verified by Visa or MasterCard Secure Code to secure your card transactions. Don't forget to keep your password and PIN safe at all times, making sure you only disclose it on official authentication websites of your bank.
If you have any further questions please contact your card issuer.back to top
