Ukraine aid: Telekom SIM news – June

We have been helping refugees from Ukraine since the beginning of the war. One of our help during the crisis was the distribution of SIM cards to the refugees. With the SIM card from Telekom, free, unlimited use of data, telephone calls and text messages within Germany and the Ukraine were possible.

How is it going in the next few weeks?

Free SIM cards will be issued up to and including June 30, 2022. SIM cards that have already been issued will also retain their free function (telephony and SMS to Ukraine and the EU as well as unlimited data volume) until at least June 30, 2022. From mid-June, Ukrainian users will receive an SMS with a link to an offer to switch to a cheap prepaid tariff with the following special conditions:

  • Cost: €9.95 per four weeks
  • 10 GB data volume for use in Germany and Europe
  • Flat rate in all German networks; 300 free minutes to Ukraine per four weeks, then 22 cents per minute and 7 cents per SMS
  • number portability
  • the first four weeks are free and include 100 GB of data volume

Anyone who accepts the offer and uses the SIM card incl. If you want to continue using the phone number, you must follow the SMS link. If you don’t want to continue using the SIM card, you don’t have to do anything. The card will then be blocked after June 30, 2022.

The SMS dispatch as well as cancellation of the cards are carried out in stages. SIM cards that were issued first will be the first to receive the SMS and the first to be switched off. SIM cards that are still being issued are the last to be affected.
