Re: Pre paid sim cant make calls on tablet.

Is it a Prepaid mobile plan or a Pre-Paid Mobile Broadband plan?.

- if it is the latter, calls and text messages are not included in the plan.

Hi Centoris, 

Dowser is on the right track, it will depend on how you have things set up at our end & what your tablet can do. 

Most of our data/tablet plans (paid & pre-paid) do not include calls or text. More info here https://tel.st/2665z7

If you're looking to use the tablet for calls & SMS you can change to one of our pre-paid mobile plan options, more info here https://tel.st/sn5ru6


Let me know if I can clarify further.
