The possibility to use the prepaid card in the mobile phone network operated by the network provider of that country shall be granted upon customer request (customer activation).

The customer shall be obliged to provide correct data. Customer activation shall be completed when the customer makes his first call.

3. Scope of services
3.1 The contents of the prepaid mobile phone contract between the network provider and the customer shall be based on the contents of the order form, the service descriptions and price lists as well as these GTC valid upon contract conclusion provided that they were pointed out during the ordering process unless agreed otherwise. The service descriptions and price lists shall be available in the travSIM GmbH or the network provider points-of-sale for inspection by the customer or shall be brought to the attention of the customer in a reasonable way by means of offering information. Amendments shall be made taking into account the statutory provisions and shall be announced to the customer.
3.2 The network provider shall provide the prepaid card with a telephone number, two personal identification numbers ("PIN") and two respective personal unblocking keys ("PUK") to the customer. The prepaid card and the PIN shall constitute the prerequisite for access to the GSM mobile phone network of the network provider operated by the network provider or the network provider mobile phone network partners. The PUK can be used for legitimisation vis-à-vis the customer service.
3.3 The customer shall be informed about the telephone number of the prepaid card, e.g. in the "welcome letter". Customers shall accept changes of telephone numbers if they are caused by measures or decisions of the regulatory authority vis-à-vis the network provider and the rules of procedures enacted in this respect or the allocation is due to incorrect information provided by the customer.
3.4 The services of the network provider shall be geographically limited to the reception and transmission range of the network provider mobile phone network operated by the network provider in that specific country. Moreover, the customer shall be entitled to make use of communication with connections abroad and communication via foreign mobile phone networks insofar as the network provider makes this technologically possible and agreed on this with the respective foreign network operators. The terms and conditions of prepaid roaming shall apply to connections abroad and from abroad.
3.5 The network provider shall provide the use of telecommunications services to the customer as part of the prepaid mobile phone contract within the meaning of Sect. 3 No. 24 Telecommunications Act (TKG) within the scope of these GTC.

Premium services are especially chat services, music services, entertainment services, entertainment services for adults, forums and service hotlines. Premium services can also be rendered via normal landline numbers. On the whole, it is irrelevant whether the additional service is separately charged beyond the connection fee or not. If the additional service is separately charged beyond the connection fees and not separately invoiced, it shall be invoiced to the customer using this service together with the telecommunications service in accordance with Section 3.5 and Section 5. However the network provider has the right not to offer any premium services in the country of operation this is different form country to country and is up to the network provider to decide.
3.7 Even in case of generally existing network coverage, the network provider does not guarantee mobile phone network coverage within closed spaces as it may be affected by the specific constructional circumstances.
3.8 The network provider shall render its services within the scope of the capacity limits of the network provider mobile phone network. Temporary disturbances, restrictions or interruptions of services can also result in cases of emergency and disaster, due to atmospheric conditions and geographical circumstances as well as harmful interference, interruption of the power supply or due to technical modifications of the installations of the network provider or the network provider partners (e.g. network improvements, installation relocation), due to other measures (e.g. maintenance work, repairs etc.) required for the proper or improved rendering of services or for reasons of force majeure (including strikes and lockouts).
3.9 Section 3.8 shall also apply to disturbances, restrictions or interruptions of the telecommunications installations of third parties used by the network provider in order to meet its obligations resulting from the customer relationship.
4. Additional services
4.1 Separate terms and conditions, service descriptions and price lists, particularly with possibly differing contract durations and termination options, shall apply to additional prepaid services or premium services rendered by the network provider in accordance with Section 3.6. Changes of an additional prepaid service to the disadvantage of the customer (e.g. service limitations or price increases) shall not entitle the customer to special termination of this prepaid mobile phone contract.
4.2 If additional services are rendered by cooperation partners, this shall lead to the establishment of a direct contractual relationship between the customer and the cooperation partner. Cooperation partners shall be indicated as such within the scope of the offer and/or the respective service description. The service of the network provider shall be limited to the provision of the technical access to the end devices of the cooperation partner, the service management and collection in this respect. The network provider shall not be liable for performance errors of the end devices used by the cooperation partner or the fulfilment of its obligations. Service limitations or price increases of the cooperation partners shall not entitle the customer to special termination of this mobile phone contract.
The terms and conditions determined in Section 4.2 shall accordingly also apply to premium services pursuant to Section 3.6 insofar as they are rendered by third parties.
5. Invoicing, advance payment obligation of the customer and payment of the services by means of topping up the prepaid credit account

f) the separate fee beyond the connection fee for the premium service in accordance with
Section 3.6, and
g) other fees stated in these GTC or the price list,
insofar as they are charged or incurred according to the respectively valid price list depending on the customer's rate choice. The gross prices stated in the price lists shall serve as basis of contract.
5.2 The customer shall pay the network provider services from the contract and the contracts for additional services and premium services in advance; thus the customer shall be obliged to advance payment. Therefore, he can only use the services of the contract, the additional services and the premium services in case of sufficient credit on the individual credit account of the prepaid card ("prepaid credit account") with the network provider within the scope of his contract.
