To make a call using your Sleek World SIM you’ll need to dial the full international number no matter what country you are calling from, or what country you are calling to. When dialling both locally and international remember to dial the full international format for all numbers.
 
Step 1. Dial the number you wish to call in full international format. 
For example, to call a Nigerian number press + then enter the country code and drop the zero. You would dial on your World SIM +234803075754 
Step 2. Press the call button. In a few seconds, your phone will ring and you need to answer this call.
Step 3. Your call will be connected. At the end of the call, you will receive a message with the cost of your last call.
 
Tip!  To make it even easier to dial, make sure you change your favourite contacts into the international format. You’ll be able to dial them using this format when you return to Nigeria so you won’t need to switch the numbers back.
 
Troubleshooting calls
If you find that you are dialling correctly but still cannot make a call, please manually select a different carrier in your phone Settings. To do this on most phones you can go to Settings > More Network or Carrier > Switch Automatic Off and select another network available.
 
If you still have difficulty making the call, try replacing the + with a * and adding a # at the end. For example, *234803075754# for the Nigerian number

People calling you on your Sleek World SIM will be charged for a call to the UK. It will vary on the carrier and agreements the person has with their provider.
