The addition of another phone number (which has already been available for some time) isn't anything to do with another SIM identity, but like a call diversion.

It's not really aimed at roaming use, but for UK visitors or immigrants who like the SIM for its cheap international rates to also be called more easily from their home country on a number local to there. When those people were visiting friends and family they'd still be more likely to use a local SIM.

What's nice is virtual numbers which can also handle text messaging. I suspect in a couple of years, this will become the norm.

Lycamobile Netherlands is switching MNO partners, from Vodafone to KPN: Dutch MVNO Lycamobile migrates to KPN network

As Vodafone NL also provides roaming outside toggle countries to all toggle SIM cards (including those issued by Toogle UK), I wonder if this move and the earlier dispute between Lycamobile and Vodafone ES will sooner or later also put an end to the "global" roaming service provided by Vodafone NL.
In any case it shouldn't be too difficult for toggle to replace the global roaming IMSI from Vodafone NL with some other operator's.

Maybe it is related to the recent rumours of a brand new toggle sim (and website revamp)?

Reading the two articles one sees a pattern of Lycamobile amassing debts to operators and then switching to other operators. Not a long term sustainable pattern. You run out of operators to run to.

US numbers are now available.

Furthermore I received a txt this morning, which left me a little nervous:
Quote:
Your toggle mobile local is 4177xxxxxxx. Free incoming calls, Calls to local/toggle mobile countries are 15p /min, SMS- 9P, Data- 15p /MB.
15p for a local call as opposed to 3p so far? However, the website doesn´t confirm the price change. Maybe the SMS was wrong?

I received this message without requesting a new local number, by the way. It arrived "just like that".

Using toggle/lyca seriously requires nerves made of steel!

Nice! I've just successfully registered an American number which has an area code (201) from Hudson and Bergen counties, NJ. It was assigned within less than a minute and was also immediately available for voice calls and SMS.

And I also received an SMS informing me about the clandestine price increase:
