    One of our 4G SIMs will work in a 3G phone, but it will only give you access to 3G data as that's all the phone is capable of receiving.

    3G isn't as quick 4G, so while the SIM might be able to give you faster download speeds, the phone won't. You'll still get great coverage, just not quite the same as with a 4G device.

    Your replacement SIM card will arrive unconnected. When you've got it, call us on 0800 079 1133 from another phone and we'll get it up and running for you.

    Voicemail setting FAQs

    If you’re a new user, the first time you check your voicemail you’ll need to:

    • Record a new personal greeting. You can then switch this to a generic greeting if you want to
    • Set a new PIN (between 5 and 8 digits)

    To check your messages just call 555 from your mobile, or dial your mobile number.

    To access your voicemail messages remotely you’ll be asked to enter your 5-8 digit PIN.

    Calling your voicemail from your mobile won't cost anything extra because it's included in your plan. But if you've used all the minutes in your plan, it'll cost 40p a minute.

    You can save a maximum of 30 voicemail messages.

    It's easy to change how long you'd like calls to your mobile to last before they go to voicemail. You can set it in 5 second increments up to 30 seconds, just by dialling the number below.

    **61*+447870020555*11*30#

    If you'd like the delay to be shorter, just replace the 30 at the end with 25, 20, 15, 10 or 5.

    If you don’t want callers to be able to leave you messages, just call your voicemail and follow the options to set this up.

    If you’d like to switch your voicemail on, or want to completely turn your voicemail service off, get in touch and we’ll help with this.

    Call 500 from your Plusnet Mobile or 0800 079 1133 from any phone. (press option 1, then option 2)
