Telegram and WhatsApp Virtual SIMs
Table of content
When registering on social networks and messaging apps such as Telegram and WhatsApp, you will be asked for a mobile number. Virtual SIMs are the best option for you if you do not want to share your main mobile number with others or if for various reasons you want to have multiple accounts in Telegram or WhatsApp. If you want to know what a virtual SIM is, what it does and how it can be obtained, stay with us in this article.
What is a virtual SIM?
A virtual SIM is actually a mobile number that someone in a country has bought and provides to you for a limited period of time or permanent use. The physical SIM card of this number is in the hands of the main buyer and you do not have access to its SIM card, but most of the things you can do with a real SIM can also be done with a virtual SIM. For example, you can create an account in Telegram or WhatsApp with a virtual SIM and benefit from all the capabilities of Telegram or WhatsApp; making voice or video calls in these messengers and sending text messages, etc.
Important Use of Virtual SIMs in Bulk Messaging
One of the most important usages of virtual SIMs is when you want to send bulk messages to messengers such as Telegram or WhatsApp to promote your business.
As you know, each account(SIM) can not send a large number of messages to anonymous people (i.e. the ones who have not chatted with you before or have not saved your number on their phone) per day. Every messenger has limitations. For example, in Telegram, each account can not message more than 50 anonymous people per day. The number is 100 messages on WhatsApp.
By having virtual SIMs, you can have multiple accounts in Telegram and WhatsApp, and when you reach the daily limit, you can increase the number of messages you send by changing the account (SIM). In the Limitations of WhatsApp Advertising article, we have discussed the limitations of bulk messaging and advertising in WhatsApp in detail, and we have also provided you with tricks to go over these limitations.
Advantages of Virtual SIMs
- Cheap and Sometimes Free
Virtual SIMs are very cheap and easy to access and sometimes you can even get a virtual SIM for free. Depending on the country and the quality of the SIMs, you can buy a virtual SIM from $1 to $3.
- Ease of purchase
Buying a real SIM is a relatively time-consuming process; It is necessary to fill in a form including identity information, address of residence, postal code, etc. But buying a virtual SIM does not need offering such information. Just go to the virtual SIM providers website and select the desired SIM and buy it easily.
- Unlimited in number of purchases
Individuals can only have a limited number of real SIM cards from all active operators across the country. But there are no limits to the number of virtual SIMs that one can purchase. You can buy as many virtual SIMs as you want from the virtual SIM providers website.
As you know, you need a mobile number to use messengers. In many of which, such as WhatsApp, your personal number is displayed to your audience, which may not be very pleasant for you. For example, if a person saves your number on his phone, they will have access to all your accounts in Telegram, WhatsApp, etc. In this way, your privacy might be invaded by a large number of audience, and it can bother you some time when you need to rest or spend time with your family. By having a virtual SIM for your business, you define a boundary between your personal and work life that is not easily accessible to others.
- Hiding regional identity
If you want to communicate with companies or individuals by voice, video or text so that they do not realize the country from where you have communicated with them, using a virtual SIM is the best option. In this way, you can communicate with people abroad by hiding your regional identity.
Disadvantages of Virtual SIMs
- Lack of access to physical SIM card
Virtual SIMs belong to another country and you do not have physical access to the physical SIM card. In other words, you are not the actual owner of these SIMs.
- One time authentication code access
Virtual SIMs send an authentication code by SMS only once. As a result, if you create an account in messengers using a virtual SIM and log out of your account or if for any reason you need to re-enter and resend the authentication code, you will no longer be able to log in to your accountand you will have to consider that account lost. You will need to purchase a new SIM to restart another account.
- Single Platform Usability
Due to the fact that the authentication code is sent to these SIMs only once,each virtual SIM can only be used on one platform to create an account there. So be careful which platform, Telegram or Instagram or WhatsApp or other platforms you are using for each virtual SIM you buy.
- Short Service Life
Since the physical SIM card of the virtual SIM is not available to you, if for any reason there is a problem with your line or you log out of your Telegram or WhatsApp account, your line will be lost and you will no longer be able to use it.
