Receiving calls

People anywhere in the world can dial your UK number directly to reach you, for example, +44774132 12345.

Emergency Call Number.

Please note Europe emergency call number “112” will NOT work in this card.

Making local calls

For the purposes of this card, local calls include calls to any country mentioned under “Coverage”, from any country mentioned under “Coverage”. To make such calls use the full international format. E.g. to call a UK landline number from any country use (for example) +44 207 222 1234.

Making calls to India

Remember to add the country code when making calls to India. Check that the number begins with +91 before dialing. E.g. to call India number 022 24216344, dial +91 22 24216344

Should you use automatic or manual network selection?

There are two ways of selecting a network. You can either set your handset to use AUTOMATIC Network selection or MANUAL selection. When using automatic selection the handset will look for all networks that it is able to attach to and logs onto the first network it finds. When using manual selection you must manually search through the networks and select a network to attach to. We recommend using automatic network selection. Please refer to your handset manual to check the default settings for your phone.

On iPhone6 & above:
a. While connected to WiFi, open Safari and goto:
b. Select Manual
c. Enter ‘globaldata’ in APN Name (small letters & no spaces) and click install.
d. If asked for a PIN enter your iPhone 4 digit unlocking PIN
e. Approve the installation of the unsigned profile.
On some iPhone devices you will need to remove the existing current Profile (found in Settings-> General -> Profile -> Existing Profile -> Remove) before installing the Globaldata APN.
On Windows Phone: Go to Apps list / Settings / Mobile Network / Add Internet APN / Set APN as “globaldata” / Save

The APN can be setup and tested 48 hours prior to departure from India.

Checking your Balance

You will periodically get automatic balance messages on your phone. Another way to get balance information is to dial +163 162 10 001 from your phone and disconnect after a few rings. The call will not be answered and you will not be charged for that call. You will later receive an SMS with balance information.

Refund Policy

You are eligible for a refund on unused talktime/data with usage rounded to the next slab. I.e. If you use 2.8GB after subscribing to a 5GB SIM card, your usage will be taken to be 3GB, and you will get refund on the difference between the price of a 3GB and 5GB card.

    Europe SIM worked well in Holland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden. At times, I had to choose a network manually to get 3G, especially in Sweden. Also, I would advise people to add the APN “globaldata” to your iPhone prior to embarking on your Europe trip. I struggled to get data on the first day. Otherwise, the SIM worked well and was a great buy. I was even able continue using the SIM card in the USA to access 3G data!

    Worked very well on calls …not too satisfied with sms and data…because wherever there was free WiFi….we never got the sms back maybe Bcoz we had a UK number and not a local…but it would be nice if you could look into this and sort it if there is a way out. regards

    The services were superb. Experience from ordering to delivery was awesome. None of the time I have observed no network in entire Europe.

    The only suggestion I have to team is to upgrade to 4G instead of 3G. Move with time.

    • Thank you for your kind words and suggestion. We are pleased to inform you that we are working on upgrading the Europe SIM card to 4G and will be able to announce this shortly.

    If 10 stars made available i would love to give them all.
    It worked just without any hassels.
    Connecting to internet was important and even the calls.
    Soon i landed in Oslo-Norway airport it started working.
    I must appreciate the call center people for helping me in chosing the right product.
    They respond back to me even after purchasing and their way of response to my queries is amazing.
    T-Sim is the best and cheapest one with lots of flexibility and transperency in accurately maintaining the remaining balance.
    I encourage to buy this product with full confidence to any traveller.
    No other service provider is giving these many flexibility with lifetime validity.
    T-Sim is the only sim i can recommend to anyone in family and friends for world travel.
    Thank you T-Sim for helping me to be connected with my FAMILY and PROFESSION all the time. 🙂

    Used the T-sim lifetime Europe sim for our recent trip, the sim worked fine at all the places. we were in stockholm for 7days and required a local number which was provided by the Tsim, it was too helpful as our local guys could contact us.
    we went to stockholm, copenhagen, hamburg, berlin, prague and vienna, the network was fine and the speed of the internet was amazing, mostly 4G at all places.
    I would recommend this Sim for Europe travel over other options available.

It is cheaper than other sims available sims and incoming calls were received even the balance was exhausted, it was delivered at Mumbai at my address in time as we proceed on our tour stopped at Mumbai for few hours. Only thing I am not able to get the balance refund as don’t know the process. T sim team may help.

    Best decision i made to buy this sim. It worked completely fine in all the countries i travelled like Czech Republic, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Italy and Vatican. Didn’t find even a single issue with this. The calls and its cost is also super cheap. Even though i didn’t receive the apn setting by USSD code, there was clear instruction on how to set manually and the data worked completely fine. Highly recommend this. The Compliment travel adapter also worked fine.

    I used the SIM card in the Czech republic, Hungary and Croatia. It worked fine.
    Topping up (while abroad) was a bit of a problem and I finally had to do a NEFT payment to the TSIM HDFC account.
    Also it would be good if there was an bigger incentive for additional usage. The additional minutes are virtually multiples of the first 100 minutes.
    However, the SIM card worked fine and was very useful so, I would definitely use it again.

    • We are sorry you found the top up process problematic. For the refundable SIM Card we recommend customers to take a higher slab, since if the slab is not used, it is refunded. E.g., if you take a 4GB card, and use only upto 2GB, the difference in price between a 4GB and 2GB card is refunded.

      Also, the per minute rates are lower for the higher slabs. Thank you for your review and continued support.

    There is no way to find out how much balance is left…. Suddenly the SIM card stopped working without any notice or warning on the amount of usage and there is no way to find out online either. I had to recharge the SIM card sitting in a foreign country and that too taking the help of someone from India….. Rest is ok.

    Great data coverage across Italy, Prague and Munich. Switching over networks was effortless.
    However checking balance is a bit tedious, as the plans have been designed to be dynamic. Dynamic plans are great, but you guys could maybe have a simple one pager app for this tracking.
    Also, those trying to contact me from India weren’t able to connect so had to use WhatsApp calling for them.

    • Thank you for your kind words. We are forwarding your suggestions to our team for action. We have recently launched balance notifications by SMS, which may have commenced after your trip. We are sorry that your family was not able to connect to you. We will investigate the cause of this.

    I used it during my 17 days trip of 4 countries across Europe – France, Switzerland, Italy and Greece. It worked very well in all the countries. Just that in switzerland there were some issues with mobile data connectivity i.e. I had to turn on the flight mode and then turn it off, for getting the data connection through. But this seemed to be the issue of local service provider Salt. Didn’t face it anywhere else. Voice call quality was also good. All in all a very good service in Europe.
    Since this is a lifetime card, if there is any balance left, it can be used for any later trips. (This is what I got to know from the customer care representative.) That makes it a good deal. Only shortfall with this card is that balance cannot be checked on the go.
    I’ll definitely recommend it.

    • Thank you for your detailed review and for specifying countries in which it worked. We have recently started a system for checking balance.

    This card is designed for use intermittent travels to European countries. Your daughter may use this card for her travels to other European countries. Moreover this card would be useful to her when she initially lands in Italy to keep in touch initially.

    Although she could continue to use the TSIM SIM all through the 4 months, we would recommend she buys a local Italian SIM for use in Italy.
