I bought a Lycamobile sim-card here in Antwerp and we are leaving tomorrow to go to Germany, Can I still use the sim-card there? And if so, how to reactivate it? What to change in settings?

  • As far as I know it will work and no settings are required, this is my personal experience and I have no evidence to support that.

  • If it goes into roaming, it will send you the right settings automatically. Expect phone to work, and internet to take a few minutes.

1 Answer 1

  • Yes, it's possible to continue using the same sim-card
  • There's no need to "reactivate" or change anything in the settings, it's all automatic
  • Note that you won't be able to use the same plan in Germany, however the charges would be capped by EU legislation at a reasonable level. Again, no need to change or do anything, it's all automatic.

However the best solution is to simply buy a local card in Germany. This may change in 2017 when all roaming fees are banned within the EU, but for now it's still better to shop around.

  • See my answer here on a bit more details about buying various prepaid SIMs in Germany, especially for heavy data users.
