Can I transfer airtime to someone in another country?
Yes. This super handy service from Lycamobile lets you transfer airtime credit to another phone abroad, even if that phone doesn’t use Lycamobile. This means friends and family will never have to be short of credit as you can share some of your own.
Will my phone work abroad?
Only with EU roaming. If your plan has EU roaming then you can use your phone like you use it in the UK – making calls and texts to UK numbers won’t cost any extra.
Can I automatically top up my phone credit?
Yes, you can. Lycamobile lets you choose when you want to top up, and how much you want to add. For example, if you worry about having £0 credit, you can set your account to top up £5 every time your balance is £5. That means you will never have less than £5 credit and you’ll always be able to make calls.
Can I switch to Lycamobile and keep my number?
Yes, you can. You’ll need to ask your current provider for a PAC code. Then, contact our Help team and we’ll transfer your number.
