How do our prepaid cards work?
A prepaid card is a non-committing offer, unlike traditional phone subscription bundles that require you to register your credit card and keep your bundle for several months, even if you are not satisfied. By using a prepaid SIM card (or two if you have dual SIM), you purchase a communication credit term unlike the bundle that requires a recurring monthly payment. Lebara prepaid cards offer all the services offered by mobile bundles, namely calls, SMS and mobile internet in 4G+ coverage.
After ordering your prepaid phone card online, you receive it directly at home and install it easily on your mobile phone. You can then use your phone at the amount chosen on the card. No overrun possible. However, prepaid cards are rechargeable. So you can topup your credit base directly online, in stores, in a tobacco office… and enjoy calls to landlines and mobile phones and sending SMS at the best rates. Please note that our prepaid cards offer unlimited free calls between Lebara France numbers.

A SIM card suitable for all mobile phones and tablets
Our non-committing SIM cards are suitable for all mobile phones, as well as tablets. Regardless of the model, whether you use smartphones or basic phones, you can enjoy the Lebara SIM card. However, in order to ensure the proper functioning of the latter, you will have to comply with certain conditions.
First of all, your mobile phone must be unlocked, that is to say adaptable to all mobile operators. Some operators lock their mobile phones so that they can be used only under their network. However, if your smartphone or basic phone is locked, you will need to request its unlocking. In order to avoid wasting time, we recommend that you do so before purchasing your SIM card.
How do I request the unlocking of my mobile phone?
Do you have a locked mobile phone in your possession? The process is simple. All you have to do is contact your former mobile operator and ask them to unlock the mobile phone. Once unlocked, your Lebara SIM card will work perfectly. If you receive a negative response to your request, you will need to use an unlocked and ready-to-use mobile.
Under which network is the Lebara SIM card functional?
Lebara relies on the network of its provider, Bouygues Telecom. Once your SIM card is ordered and received, insert it into your device. Normally, after dialing your PIN, you should see “Lebara” or “Bouygues Telecom” displayed on the screen. If not, here is how to fix the problem:
Go to the connection/network settings of your smartphone/basic phone ;
Check that the “Network” operator displays “LEBARA” or "Bouygues Telecom" ;
If not: select the manual network search ;
Reset your network settings by selecting another network ;
Manually search the network again and select “Lebara” or “Bouygues Telecom” ;
That's it! Your SIM card works under the Lebara network.
