How do I switch to Mobile Vikings from a different provider?

  1. You request your SIM card with a subscription or prepaid SIM card online. You also have the choice between an eSIM or a physical SIM card. A physical SIM card is delivered within 5 working days. You can activate an eSIM immediately after your order.
  2. Activate your Mobile Vikings SIM card after you receive it, and wait until your reception with your current provider falls off. That happens within 24 hours.
  3. If you have a physical SIM card, change your SIM card after your current carrier's network is lost. You can activate an eSIM immediately after your order.

A few nice-to-knows


Can I keep my number?
Sure, no problem! When you order your SIM card with a subscription or prepaid SIM card you can select 'Keep my number'. Unless you want a new number, which obviously is also possible.

Who cancels my current subscription?

We do that once you’re actively using the Mobile Vikings network. You don’t need to contact your current provider yourself.

Can people still reach me during my switch?

Absolutely. People can reach you via your old provider until you’re actively using the Mobile Vikings network. So there is no period in which you are unable to call, text, or use data.

What happens to my subscription at my current provider?

If you switch providers in the middle of the month, your previous provider will usually only charge you for your active period. But go ahead and contact your previous provider if you don’t want to pay the full amount of the invoice, because this calculation doesn’t always happen automatically.

What happens to my prepaid SIM card at my current provider? 

In most cases, your bundles and calling credit will expire as soon as your switch to a Mobile Vikings subscription will be complete. Of course, you’re free to ask your current provider if you can only pay for your active usage. Go ahead and contact your current provider for more info.
