After you click "Create account" on "Welcome to MyJOi" page, if the following page is not displayed, please try again. If you are redirected to the main page without receiving the welcome message with the order number, your account has not been created. Should this issue persist, here are some useful tips you might use. We also recommend clearing your web browser’s cache (please see below).
- Long addresses: If the customer’s address is too long- more than 30 digits, please choose “My address in not on the list. I want to enter my address manually” and enter a shorter version by using abbreviation.
- Do not forget to choose your salutation (Mr./Mrs./Ms) when creating the account. It is one of the most frequent reasons for which the account creation fails.
- If possible, use a computer or laptop to place the order.
- If after clicking on “Create an account”, the next page is not displayed, please try again. If you are directed to the main page without receiving a welcome message containing the order number, the account has not been created.

Why clear my browser’s cache?
Your browser's cache, pronounced like cash, is a collection of web pages, including the text, images, and most other media contained on them, that is stored on your hard drive or phone storage.
Having a local copy of a web page makes for very quick loading on your next visit because your computer or device does not have to download all the same information from the internet again. It is then necessary to clear your web browser’s cache to retrieve the newest copy available from the website.
How do I clear the cache on my browser?
Mozilla Firefox: Clear the cache from the Clear Recent History area in the browser's options. Once there, select Cache and then click Clear Now.
IE 7: clearing the cache is done from the Tools icon where you go to Internet Options and in the General section you will find the Browsing History area. From here, select Delete temporary files, history ... and website form information, tick the box Delete browsing history and click the Delete... button. The Delete Browsing History window opens where you choose and tick accordingly, followed by clicking on Delete.
Google Chrome: click the Customize and control Google Chrome icon (three horizontal dots in the upper right corner (⋮) ) > click on History> Clear Browsing Data> choose Time range> tick all 3 boxes and click on Clear Data.
Safari: clearing the cache is done via the Develop menu. Just tap or click Develop and then Empty Caches.
Android: Open the Internet browser. Then, press the menu button (⋮)> click Settings in the menu> click Privacy and Security> click Clear Cache
iOS: open Settings> select Safari> tap Clear History and Website Data> Clear

Signal strength can vary depending on weather conditions, your distance from a mast, and the location of the building you're in, particularly if it's in a valley or behind a tree.
If you're having signal problems, these tips might help you:
- Try sitting near a window;
- Try using your phone in a different room as some rooms get a stronger signal than others, depending on the thickness of the walls;
- Try switching your phone off and back on again;
- Make sure you have enough battery on your phone as this can affect signal strength.
Some phones are better at picking up signals than others.
Spam messages are usually marketing messages that are sent to you without you requesting them.

Roaming enables you to use your service when you are outside of your home network. When roaming is active and you use your service, additional charges may apply.
International roaming allows you to make calls, send texts or use data when you’re abroad. When you travel to a foreign country and phone, text or surf online with your mobile phone or device using your home country's SIM card, you are roaming. JOi and an operator in the country you are travelling to, work together to keep you connected, so you can still make and receive phone calls, send text messages, surf the internet and download content. If you use your phone abroad, you may be charged roaming rates.
Our rates are easy to understand and have no hidden extras – just check our Price Guide for details.
The European Parliament has decided to eliminate roaming tariffs in the European Union as of 1st June 2017. You'll be able to take your national data, minutes and texts to use anywhere in the EU at no extra cost
Your current SMS and Voice calls allowance from the current plan you are on automatically are available in EU. For example, if you have 5 hours of calls locally, the same 5 hours are available when roaming in the EU.
If your plan includes unlimited calls and SMS, you will get unlimited calls and SMS when roaming in the EU. Your data allowance will depend on your chosen price plan.
To check the details of your monthly allowance, please refer to the Price Guide on https://www.joitelecom.fr/en or log in to MyJOi.

Smartphones are permanently connected to the internet so you could use data abroad without realizing it. You can change your roaming settings before you go abroad, either by turning data roaming off on your phone or by changing your data settings.
A worldwide data roaming limit of 50 € per month is already set up to stop you spending too much.
We'll send you text messages to let you know when you've reached 80% and 100% of this 50 € limit.
After that, your data traffic will be blocked, but you can always be able to enable it again by calling us.
To keep track of what you're spending abroad, you can check your balance in MyJOi.
If you don't want to receive text notifications of roaming costs, or if you disabled them and want them active again, just call us at 121 if you are in France or +33 535 900 121 if you are calling from abroad.
Keep in mind that your roaming may be activated when you are near a border in another country, as it may pick up a different signal. Therefore, whenever you are close to a border of another country, always check the name of the network displaying on your mobile phone. If it’s not changed, you can be sure that roaming is disabled. If it’s changed, then a different signal was picked up, roaming may be activated, and additional charges may occur. If you do not want your roaming enabled automatically, you can turn it off.
Receiving text messages is always free of charge, while in your country or abroad.

The passcode cannot be created when calling the voicemail. If you are calling from your non-JOi number, you will be asked to provide your 10 digits phone number. Calling your voicemail from abroad is rated as regular roaming call.
- local emergency services: 112 in Europe, 911 in USA and Canada.

The Single Euro Payments Area (or SEPA for short) is an initiative of the European banking industry that made electronic payments across the euro currency area – as easy as domestic payments, meaning bank transactions can be made faster and are more secure. It became effective since 2010.

We will notify you by text and Notification in MyJOi when you have used 80% and then 100% of the data, minutes or texts included in your plan (where applicable). If you go over your allowance of data, minutes or texts included in your plan, you will be charged out-of-bundle rates (you can find the current rates in our Price Guide) and any further usage may be limited to prevent unexpected high bills. This limit is determined by your billing payment history, but you can increase it each month by making a payment in MyJOi if, for example, you are going abroad and plan to use a lot of data.
RATES WHEN EXCEEDING THE MONTHLY DATA ALLOWANCE JOi S or JOi Small £3.00 per 250 MB for the first 2500 MB.

If your service is not working, please follow the steps below:
- Double check your SIM card with at least two different 3G devices; try it in different locations to make sure that the issue is not due to poor signal at your current location.
- Verify there is no outstanding balance on your account to make sure your line is not suspended due to missing payment. If there is an outstanding balance, service should be restored within 24 hours once said balance is settled. If you recently made a payment and the service was not reconnected, please reboot your device.
- If after these tests your service keeps failing, please contact our Customer Service via chat.
When you placed your order for a JOi SIM, you paid one monthly fee in advance. This monthly fee is credited in your first bill.
You will also have a pro-rated charge for your first month, from the date you activate your SIM, or 14 days from the date of your order, whichever comes first. Your first month calls, texts and data allowance (where applicable) are pro-rated in the same way.
This means you receive and pay for a proportion of the full monthly allowance. For example, if you order a JOi Mobile SIM on the 1st of the month, but don’t activate it until the 15th, you will receive and only pay for half the full monthly call, text and data allowance (where applicable) in your first month. Any additional use will be out-of-bundle and charged accordingly. You can always check how much allowance you have in MyJOi.
Finally, your first recurring bill also includes the fee for the following month, because monthly recurring fees are always charged in advance.
Your last bill could be higher than your usual monthly charge if you cancel your subscription before the ending of your commitment period. In this case, we will charge you for the remainder of your contract.
We will remind you about any outstanding bill until we are forced to suspend your mobile service.
The Early Termination Fee is the charge applied when you cancel your subscription before the end of your contract or minimum term. The amount payable depends on the time left to run until the end of your contract: you will be billed the monthly charge for your chosen plan for each remaining month.
For example, if you cancel your subscription on 15th August 2019 and your contract ends on 5th October 2019, the Early Termination Fee will be your monthly recurring charge x 2. This is because you will have already paid for August in advance in your previous bill, but you will still have to pay for September and October (the last month is not pro-rated, so regardless of the date your contract ends, you pay for the last month in full).
The Early Termination Fee will be added to your final bill.
