Lycamobile reserves the right to withdraw or suspend the offers or to disconnect you if we suspect that offer is being used for commercial purposes, for conferencing, if it is not being used in a handset (in a SIM box for example),
or if it is being used for tethering.
Has anyone had this happen to them?
Would it have to be prolonged use of tethering to be detected?

Seems only to happen when topping up normally.

When paying for a bundle it goes through straight away.

Have Lyca stopped blocking tethering? They used to block it unless TTL on the tethered device was changed to match the handset TTL.

Asked the same question above. I don't want to get my number barred from using their network!

Yes. Lyca started messing with customers tarffic about 6 months ago or so.
To me it manifests as Viber stopped working on Lycamobile data connection and ads are injected into http traffic, I see them all the time. Worse, those ads break quite a few pages I tried to browse.

Help needed please.
I'm out of contract with Eir and I have an unlocked phone. I wish to switch to Lycamobile €15 deal with 25 g & unlimited calls & texts.
I got a €15 top up voucher on my way home plus a Lyca sim.

Could someone explain how I port my number over, I already advised Eir of this.

Do I just switch off my phone.
Enter new Sim.
Top up x £15.

I'm wary about entering the new sim and topping up as I'm afraid I'll get a new number.

All help appreciated.

If I were you I'd ask eir to convert your account to PAYG and keep it alive for the first month, just to be sure there aren't any issues with Lyca (data speed, signal, banking verification codes etc). The only drawback is having to make calls/texts with another number for that month.

Once you put the Lyca SIM in the phone, it'll have that SIMs phone number (089...). This won't have any impact on the eir phone number until you port it to Lyca using the Lyca SIM in conjunction with this page...
https://www.lycamobile.ie/en/help/transfer-your-number/
Note the times for porting...
Quote:
Business time for weekdays between 08:00 to 17:55
Business time for weekends between 10:00 to 15:55
Don't forget that you don't have to buy a bundle, topping up by 15euro gives 15GB and all calls (but no text) and keep the 15 top up.

Just go to Lycamobile website on above link and port following the instructions.
Wait for the Eir sim to fail, then insert Lyca sim and top-up

No need to advise Eir of anything.

As above go to the website and port using instructions - if you run into trouble, tweet them, I find they are quite responsive on twitter.

How do you cancel Lycamobile?
I've cancelled Bundle auto renew but is there more?
Do I have to give 30 days notice???

I'm switching to the new gomo sim deal...

You can make your port over date the day your lyca bundle runs out.
Unlikely they will be reaching that 100,000 soon. More marketing than I remember any previous, but still a high number.

I have found Lycamobile an absolute nightmare to deal with. First huge problems getting the SIM cards, then some problems setting them up for the kids. The kids have had them for two weeks and they continuously complain about lack of internet and 3G etc. I signed up for GoMo immediately and will port them ASAP.
