Sorry if this has been asked before. I did look, really I did!

Can you register for a Toggle Mobile "local number" in a non-Toggle Mobile country? For example can I register for a Denmark number while I am still here in the US? I do have service on the phone and can receive incoming phone calls. And have 11 Euros of credit.

Every time I attempt to register I get this error:
Subscriber cannot have more than 8 local numbers

And then in a few minutes I get a text message that says:
"Registration Failed Pls try again"

Not a huge deal as I can wait until I actually arrive, but I was hoping to already have it working when I landed.

So whoever is going to answer this will know: Do you have 8 local numbers already?

I only have the UK number that it comes with. No others.

Delight mobile OK. Piranha mobile OK until now with a bad issue at the beginning.

Yeah, I'm not going to travel to the UK to register for a Denmark number

I've emailed Toggle Mobile customer support. I'll see what they say.

Well I tried a few hours later and it now works. So yes you can register for a local # while you are in the US.

It sounds like some temporary glitch.

The numbers on mine were all added before arrival in the relevant country, and they work for incoming calls straight away when added.

On a separate point, on the most recent trip to France, a couple of months after the first so with a different number, the SIM would not connect to the network from automatic identity mode and had to be done manually. Has anyone else seen this?

I had something similar happen. I purchased two SIMs. First SIM worked just fine and registered with the network. Put the 2nd SIM into the same phone and it would not register and I left it on for over 12 hours. Ended up having to use the SIM Toolkit to force it to Roaming mode in the Toggle menu.

Which was also a big pain to use the SIM Toolkit because Android seems to have some sort of bug and only displays the SIM Toolkit app if the SIM has a PIN active. Once I setup a PIN on the SIM though and power cycled the phone I could then use the SIM Toolkit. This was on a Samsung Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.3.

I'm not sure how competitive they are in the Toggle Mobile "local number" countries. Outside of those countries they are competitive though..

But Toggle Mobile seems to be a much better deal in their "local number" countries.

For example in Denmark and calling within Denmark costs are:
Toggle Mobile: 3 pence/minute to landline, 9p/min to mobile, 9 pence for outgoing SMS, 15 p/megabyte data, and free incoming calls.

Vectone Mobile: 24 pence/minute outgoing calls, 8 pence for outgoing SMS, 45 p/megabyte data, and 7p/minute incoming calls. If you use "Smart Roam" (a callback service) than outgoing calls drop to 14p/min.

Now in countries like Czech Republic and Hungary that are not Toggle Mobile "local number" countries than Vectone has slightly better rates overall. Vectone rates are the same as above but Toggle mobile in Czech Republic & Hungary is: 23 pence/minute to landline and mobile, 7 pence for outgoing SMS, 67 p/megabyte data, and 19 p/min for incoming calls.

Maybe I'm missing something. I didn't spend a lot of time on the Vectone website.
