A new useful innovation implemented by the Kyivstar Company is an SIM for tablet service. It gives an opportunity to use mobile phone and device providing access to the Internet simultaneously from a single subscriber`s number and account. One SIM-card can be used in the mobile phone and the other in the pad, laptop or modem. The service is available to prepaid and contract subscribers.
The SIM for tablet service gives an opportunity to receive additional SIM-card with the same subscriber’s number as the number of the main SIM-card and a single account. The SIM for tablet service is convenient as there is no need to buy a separate SIM-card and replace the SIM-card from the mobile phone into the device with access to the Internet.
A service fee for the internet access and mobile communication is charged from the single personal account, therefore, there is no need to top up account for different SIM-cards.
Additional SIM-card is intended only for using mobile Internet and sending MMS, as well as services based on USSD-requests. Outgoing/incoming calls and SMS services, as well as MMS reception, do not work.
