For any information on Lycamobile services and offers, the Customer can contact the Customer Assistance Service by calling the free number 40322 from Lycamobile SIM or the paid number 0645212322, available every day, from 9 to 18, or consult the website www.


The Lycamobile pre-paid and rechargeable SIM card allows, once inserted in a mobile phone, to make and receive phone calls, send and receive text messages.

Telephone number

Upon delivery of the SIM Card, Lycamobile assigns the Customer one or more telephone numbers. Where it is technically possible, Lycamobile keeps the same telephone number even in the event of a SIM card replacement or a change in the telephone plan.

Lycamobile can replace the telephone number assigned to the Customer only for reasons of supervening technical impossibility or by order of the competent Authorities. In this case, Lycamobile will inform the Customer of the new number at least 60 days in advance, except in cases of force majeure.

Number Portability

Number portability, regulated by art. 80 of Legislative Decree 1 August 2003, no. 259 and the relevant regulations, allows Customers who request it to keep their telephone number while changing the service provider manager.

Through this service, customers of any mobile operator can switch to Lycamobile by keeping their phone number and accessing the service provided by Lycamobile. By choosing to port their number to Lycamobile, Customers will therefore be able to make and receive calls, text messages and data with the “ported” number and take advantage of all Lycamobile services and offers at the same economic conditions and in the same manner as all other Customers.

To request the number portability service, the Customer must complete the Lycamobile porting service request form. The Customer is required to pay Lycamobile any fees envisaged for the provision of the number portability service.

Lycamobile remains totally extraneous to the relationships between the Customer and the mobile operator of origin. The provision of the number portability service requires Lycamobile to recognize the Customer for any telephone traffic purchased which may remain for the benefit of the Customer against the operator of origin.

Economic conditions

Information on Lycamobile offers is disseminated through advertising communications, the Customer Assistance Service and the website

Changes that make the economic conditions of the subscribed offer more onerous will be communicated by Lycamobile at least 30 days in advance. The Customer may withdraw according to the contractually established methods and in any case communicated at the time of notification of the change in the economic conditions and, in any case, without the provision of penalties for withdrawal.



The Lycamobile SIM Card entitles you to access the Lycamobile mobile network and to use a number which, according to current legislation, is subject to conditions of effective and efficient use.
The Customer will be able to make calls with the purchase of pre-paid traffic by recharging the SIM Card.

Once the traffic is exhausted, except in the case of a further top-up, it will only be possible to receive incoming calls.

The SIM Card allows you to make and receive national calls and is enabled to make international calls from Italy. Furthermore, all SIM Cards can make (where an international roaming agreement is available) and receive calls from abroad by choosing from the various charge methods offered.

By calling the Customer Assistance Service free of charge from any mobile phone in which your SIM Card is inserted, during the period of validity of the card, you will always be able to know the residual amount of traffic purchased on your SIM Card.

Deactivation of the card and management of the remaining credit

The SIM Card has a duration of 24 months starting from the making of the first paid call or from the last top-up operation. After 13 months (12+1) without top-up operations, the service will be suspended and the SIM Card will be deactivated, upon notice to the Customer 30 (thirty) days in advance. In the event of suspension of the service, the Sim Card can be reactivated free of charge within a further period of 11 months (the “Reactivation Period”) and the reactivation of the Sim Card will take place within 48 hours of the Customer’s request, except in exceptional cases. Once the Reactivation Period has elapsed without the Customer receiving a reactivation request (i) the Sim Card will be definitively deactivated, upon notice to the Customer 30 (thirty) days in advance,

In this case, the Customer can obtain recognition of the remaining credit on another Lycamobile SIM or, alternatively, by crediting the bank account. In case of return, the remaining credit will be paid net of € 10.00 as costs incurred by Lycamobile for the return of the aforementioned amount. To request the residual credit, it is necessary to send a registered letter to the address “Lycamobile Srl, Via di Valle Lupara 10, 00148 Rome”, with the indication of the personal data (name, surname and tax code) of the SIM holder, copy of an identity document, telephone number of the SIM and details of the current account to which to make the transfer.


The Customer has the right to withdraw from the contractual relationship with Lycamobile at any time, giving notice to Lycamobile 30 days in advance by sending the following documentation by fax to Lycamobile’s Customer Assistance Service: withdrawal request, copy of a valid document identity and tax code.

Upon termination of the relationship, the Lycamobile SIM will be deactivated and the numbers associated with it may be assigned to other customers.

Traffic purchased by the Customer, and possibly not consumed at the time of withdrawal, is subject to the rules on the management of the residual credit indicated above.


The services provided by Lycamobile to its Customers are made available, under the conditions set out in a specific access contract, by a leading operator in the supply of electronic communications networks and services at national level

Lycamobile was guaranteed the provision of adequate network maintenance services and the same quality and level of service offered to other customers and operators, including territorial coverage and signal transmission.

In compliance with the provisions of Resolution no. 104/05/CSP, Lycamobile carries out a systematic survey and verification of its quality standards with the aim of continuously improving the services provided to its Customers. In compliance with current legislation, the following quality parameters monitored by Lycamobile have been identified and whose objectives for the reference year are shown in Annex A – 2009 Quality Objectives:

  • Voice service activation time;
  • Credit Renewal Time;
  • Response times for calls to the operator’s customer support services;
  • Claims about charges;
  • Probability of SMS transfer to SMS centre.

Lycamobile reserves the right to apply different pricing methods for access to the service:

  • timed: criterion connected to the duration of the conversation made. The duration can be charged per second (depending on the effective seconds of conversation), or in steps (depending on the number of steps present in a call or on the duration of the single step);
  • volume: criterion dependent on the quantity of bytes actually exchanged;
  • event: criterion dependent on obtaining the requested information.

The amount spent by the Customer for the purchase of the pre-paid service will be deducted from the credit each time the service is used.
The Customer will be able to find out the remaining credit available to him by calling the Customer Assistance Service free of charge or through the website


For Lycamobile, customer satisfaction is of fundamental importance. For this reason, continuous periodic surveys are carried out (on representative samples of the various customer segments) through which quality improvement programs are prepared.

The surveys measure customer satisfaction with regard to:

  • the quality of the network;
  • to the Customer Assistance Service;
  • the additional services used;
  • the effectiveness and acceptance of advertising.

In the event of theft or loss, the Customer must promptly call the Lycamobile Customer Assistance Service communicating the incident and the recipient’s data (telephone number, name and surname, tax code, identity document details).

In this way the SIM card, after verification of ownership, will be immediately blocked for outgoing calls. However, the customer has the possibility to keep the telephone number. The telephone number and residual traffic remain available to the customer.
