The Vectone Xtra App is free to download and install. Calls and texts that you make through Vectone Xtra either cost the same or less as they normally would on your mobile and use the same credit balance as you mobile (so you don’t need to top up separately). You can use Wi-Fi or the mobile data network for making calls.
Emergency calls are not supported on the Vectone Xtra App.
Yes, you can have it open and running on up to five devices at once (but you can install it on as many devices as you like). Remember, you can only make and receive calls, texts and get voicemail if you're logged in on that device.

Yes. If you’re using mobile data, Vectone App will use data from your data allowance. If you use WiFi you can avoid mobile data network charges. If you're using a data connection on another device for calls and texts, like using 3G on your device, the data you use will come out of your device data allowance.
Yes. You can disable mobile network usage by disabling the mobile network in your phone’s settings.
If you're using Vectone Xtra over the mobile network, you'll have to pay normal mobile data roaming charges. If you're using Vectone Xtra over WiFi, your calls and texts will cost the same as they would if you were in Portugal – and will come out of your monthly allowance. If you keep your mobile data switched on while you're abroad, your Timeline will keep using it to sync in the background. Data roaming can be expensive. You should therefore disable mobile data networks in your phone or device settings to avoid excessive data charges. This includes using a 3G connection on your device. If you're connected to Wi-Fi, you can sync your Timeline for free.
If you call or text over the mobile network, you'll be charged the normal roaming rate. If you call or text on Wi-Fi only, it'll cost the same as it would if you were in Portugal. In other words, calls and texts back to Portugal will come out of your monthly allowance while calls to international numbers will be charged as if you were in Portugal. If you're not connected to Wi-Fi and try to make a call through Vectone Xtra, you'll see a popup telling you that your call will be made using the 3G data network.
No. These aren't supported by Vectone Xtra. To call premium rate numbers or shortcodes, you'll need to use your phone as normal.
