Although the AOW Global Data SIM is a data-only service, you can use a VoIP (voice over IP) app like Viber Messenger to make calls and send messages to other Viber users.
Skype is available to use with any smartphone or tablet with an AOW Global Data SIM inserted. To use Viber, please follow these steps:
- Download the Viber app on your mobile device, open the app, and give Viber access to your contacts so the app will sync any of your contacts who also user Viber.
- Choose your country and verify your phone number. You will receive an access code via SMS so make sure you’re connected to your home network while you set up Viber.
Using Viber to make calls:
You can make free calls through Viber to any of your Viber contacts. To make free calls, tap Contacts and select Viber at the top. A list of your contacts who also use Viber will be displayed. Click on the contact you want to call, and tap Free Call or Free Video Call if you’d like to video chat.
You can also make calls to regular phone numbers using Viber, but you will need to add Viber Out credit. You can add credit and view calling rates by tapping More and selecting Viber Out. To make Viber Out calls, click on the contact you want to call, and tap Viber Out Call. You can also place calls to a non-contact number by tapping Calls and opening the Keypad, then dialing the number you want to call.
Using Viber to send messages:
You can send instant messages through Viber to any of your Viber contacts. To do so, tap Contacts and select Viber at the top. A list of your contacts who also use Viber will be displayed. Click on the contact you want to call, and tap Free Message.
You can also tap Chats and click the new chat icon in the top right corner. Select the contact (or contacts, if you’d like to start a group message) you want to send a message to.
