Frequently asked questions about mobile subscriptions

Become mobile customer

You've made up your mind: you're switching operator! Great! Becoming a mobile customer is hassle-free: we take care of everything!

  • Online
    Follow these steps:
    • Add your subscription to the basket.
    • Choose "New customer" and enter your details.
    • Indicate your current operator and whether you wish to keep your current number.
  • In a shop: visit a Proximus Shop near you.

No worries, we take care of transferring your number!

  1. Once you've ordered your mobile subscription online you can start the product configuration.
  2. Choose your current operator from the list and the mobile phone number you would like to transfer.
  3. You'll only need to provide your customer account number. If you have a prepaid subscription you'll have to provide the SIM card number.

Choose the subscription you need and click the "Add to card" button. Your remaining call credit of your reload card will be automatically deducted from your first bill.

We transfer your number free of charge. When placing your order, you just need to indicate whether you want to keep your number; we'll take care of the rest.

You can continue to make calls while we take care of the transfer. It doesn't matter if you have a mobile phone number from Proximus or another operator.

  1. Choose your subscription
    Keep your customer and SIM card number from your current operator with you when ordering online. If you have a prepaid subscription, your SIM card number is required.
  2. We take care of everything
    Once your order has been confirmed, we contact your current operator to cancel your contract and transfer your number to Proximus. We will make sure that your mobile number remains the same. This takes a maximum of 3 working days. In the meantime, you will receive your Proximus SIM card.
  3. Sit back and relax
    Once everything is settled, you receive an SMS to let you know that your subscription is ready. When your current network is no longer available, you can replace your SIM card and after a maximum of 30 minutes, you can start calling, surfing, texting... as usual.

Of course! On the smartphones page, you can enjoy our smartphones deals.

If you order a smartphone with subscription on our website, your new phone will be delivered to your home address free of charge. You can choose the delivery date when you order.

Do you already have a Proximus mobile subscription? Then you don't need a new SIM card. A few hours after your purchase, you'll receive an activation text message, and you're good to go! And do you currently have a prepaid card or SIM card from another provider? No stress, we'll fix it so that you receive a new SIM card as soon as possible, in the post or at a Proximus Shop nearby. After you receive the activation text message, you can start your endless sharing.

Mobile Subscriptions

The mobile subscriptions and their benefits (calls, texts, data and unlimited favourite app) are valid in Belgium and while travelling in the European Union.

Geography not your strong point? Look up the EU countries before you leave. For example, you may think Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland and the Vatican City are in the EU, but they're not!

Here is the list of countries where you can use your national plan to call, text and surf: Aland Islands (Finland), Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, French Guyana, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Guadeloupe (French Antilles), Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Martinique (French Antilles), Mayotte, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Réunion, Romania, San Marino (French Antilles), Saint-Barthélemy (French Antilles), Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom + Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway.

Outside the EU: data, texts and your call minutes are not valid there either. You have to pay for each MB, call minute or text. The exact prices vary, depending on the country.

Check out the prices on our site

Choose a favorite app from Twitter, Pinterest, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Facebook and Messenger. When you surf on these apps, no data usage will be billed.

WhatsApp is activated by default on all Mobilus subscriptions.

You can select your favorite app via MyProximus after activating your subscription. You can change your app once a month.

It depends on your mobile subscription:

With Mobilus 5G Unlimited:
In Belgium, you can really surf unlimited with the maximum speed via our 4G, 4G+ and 5G networks. In the rest of the EU: you have 50 GB every month. Above 50 GB you will surf at maximum speed but with a small surcharge (€0.0036/MB).

With Mobilus XL unlimited:
Each month you get 35 GB at maximum speed on 4G in Belgium and in the European Union. If you use more you’ll be surfing at reduced speed (maximum 512 kbps) without extra cost.

With Unlimited Premium subscription in a Flex pack:
In Belgium you can surf unlimited at maximum speed via our 4G, 4G+ and 5G networks. In the rest of the European Union you have 50 GB every month. Above 50 GB you will surf at maximum speed but with a small surcharge (€0.0036/MB).

With Unlimited subscription in a Flex pack:
Each month, you get 40 GB at full speed in Belgium and in the European Union, then continue surfing for free at a reduced speed of 512 kbps.

With Unlimited Light subscription in a Flex pack:
Each month, you get 20 GB at full speed in Belgium and in the European Union, then continue surfing for free at a reduced speed of 512 kbps.

You have a maximum of 500 text messages per day. Once you have reached this amount, you won't be able to send any more messages until midnight. The next day, you will be able to text again. No idea when you will reach this number? Don't worry, you will receive a notification when you have sent 400 messages and you will receive another notification when you have reached the limit of 500 messages. One text message exists of 160 characters.

Mobile subscriptions with smartphone

If you recently took out a contact for a subscription + smartphone, you can switch without a problem. You will pay the mobile subscription fee, plus the DataPhone option you also pay for now.

If you took out a contract with a smartphone some time ago, please read the small print. You can't just cancel your contract and will have to pay a cancellation fee.

I want to know more about the conditions of change

If you order a smartphone with subscription on our website, your new phone will be delivered to your home address free of charge. You can choose the delivery date when you order.

Promotion and tariffs

Promotions are only available for a new mobile subscription. You will pay a promo price for the duration of the specific promotion (e.g. the first 6 months). After these first months, you will pay the full price of the chosen subscription.

In general offers cannot be combined with other current promotions or the combined offer of a smartphone with subscriptions.

The web promo is not valid when booking a device via Click&Collect in a Proximus Shop.
 

Consult the roaming and international rates of your mobile subscription that apply when you're abroad or when you call an international destination.

FullControl subscriptions

The subscription allows you to call, text and surf freely in Belgium and the European Union. If you use up more than what is included in your subscription or when travelling outside the EU, you have the option of exceeding your monthly bundle. You'll then be billed at the applicable out-of-bundle rate. You can track your usage via MyProximus and through SMS notifications.

With FullControl, you retain full control over your budget as you cannot exceed your monthly bundle. No surprise on your invoice anymore! It’s the ideal solution for kids.

With a FullControl subscription, your call minutes and MB will be automatically blocked once you’ve used them up. You can of course continue to send text messages limitlessly. If you’ve used up your bundle or need to make calls, send text messages or surf the Net outside the European Union, you can top up with additional credit online, at the top-up rate.

Besides, with this solution you will limit additional costs on services such as special phone numbers (0900…), international calls, roaming (out of EU) and third-party services.

Once you've ordered your Mobilus FullControl subscription, log in to MyProximus. Choose 'Proximus' from the operator list and the mobile phone number you would like to transfer. For every mobile phone number you want to transfer you'll need to provide the SIM card number, so keep this at hand.

Good to know: you can only keep your mobile phone number if this isnt combined with a smartphone offer. What if you've signed up for a smartphone offer with a subscription or currently benefit from a pack, promotional offer or extra option? Contact us via chat or visit a Proximus Shop and let us help you switch.

Don't worry: you can top up if necessary! Your call minutes and data will be automatically blocked once you've used up your bundle allowance. Of course, you continue to enjoy unlimited texting. Think you need more volume? Or need to call from abroad? Easily reload your subscription online!

Epic subscriptions

Epic is a mobile subscription for young people. It's much more than a simple price plan. Besides endless mobile data for social media and music apps, unlimited texts, 90 or even 120 call minutes, and 3 or 4 GB extra data for all other apps/browsing, you get a whole lot of extras.

The social networking apps are Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, Messenger, Pinterest, Twitter and Snapchat. You don't have to choose one because you get them all.

The music apps are Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, SoundCloud, Google Play Music, One World Radio-Tomorrowland, Audiomack and TikTok.

When you listen to these apps, no data usage will be billed.

I want to discover Epic

That depends entirely on how you use your mobile phone! If you use it mainly for social networking and music apps, which guzzle up all your mobile data, then Epic is for you. If you use it for other apps, you're better off with one of our another mobile subscriptions.

Our competitors also offer different possibilities, of course, but they're not as interesting as ours! ;-) Want a clear summary? Check out the comparison tool.

Good question! You can transfer data at the maximum speed for all your Epic apps, until you reach 25 GB for Epic stories & Epic beats and 40 GB for Epic videos. After that, your Internet speed for these apps will be lowered, i.e. to 512 Kbps in Belgium and in the EU. But don't worry, this is still high enough to continue using your apps. To give you an idea: in theory, you can listen to Spotify in normal quality at 96 Kbps. And did you know that you could listen to Spotify for over 625 hours before your 25 GB would have been used up ?

The endless epic apps were selected based on research for the most used applications amongst millenials .

The social networking apps are Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, Messenger, Pinterest, Twitter and Snapchat. You don't have to choose one because you get them all.

By the way, the Facebook videos you watch in your wall are included. So even if you click on a video and end up in a Facebook video page, this is included in your endless data. But watch out: if you arrive on YouTube via Facebook, the mobile data is no longer free. That's because YouTube is not included in Epic stories or Epic beats. Big fan of Youtube? Check Epic videos mobile subscription.

The music apps are Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, SoundCloud, Google Play Music, One World Radio-Tomorrowland, Audiomack and TikTok.

When you listen to these apps, no data usage will be billed. With "endless listening" we mean that you don't have to pay for data. But that doesn't mean you now have a premium subscription for these services. You have to arrange that yourself.

The video apps are Netflix, Youtube, Twitch and Pickx.

Yep. If you need more data than your 3 or 4 GB in your bundle, you can buy 500 MB extra for just 5 euro. And it's valid for 31 days. You can activate it easily via the app. You can do this yourself, even when you’re not the one who pays the bill, but maybe ask the one who pays if it’s ok ;-)

Within the 27 EU countries (+ United Kingdom, Iceland,  Liechtenstein and Norway) you can continue using your national price plan. So you can keep on using your Epic apps without paying for mobile data. But watch out! But there's a 25 GB limit for Epic stories & beats and a 40 GB limit for Epic videos. When you've used up those 25 GB/ 40 GB, your Internet speed for these apps will be lowered, i.e. to 512 Kbps in Belgium and in the EU.

The 3 or 4 GB you receive for all your other apps can also be used in the rest of the EU, just like the calling minutes and unlimited texts.

Geography not your strong point? Look up the EU countries before you leave. For example, you may think Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland and the Vatican City are in the EU, but they're not!

Outside the EU you don't have free data for your social networking, music or video apps. And your stack of 3/4 GB and your call minutes are not valid there either. You'll have to pay for each MB, call minute or text. The exact prices vary, depending on the country.
