Below, are are list of the common questions we are often asked. Have a read through and see if this answers your query.
If you're still unsure about anything, please don't hesitate to get in touch with our support team. There's contact details at the bottom of the page.
The Moochies phone watch is unlocked to 3G networks, so you can pick one that works best in your area. Remember to ensure the SIM you pick is 3G capable, has minimum of 100MB of data and has credits for messaging/calling.
However, because of the frequency Telstra works at, this network is not compatible for your Moochies phone watch. We recommend either Vodafone and Optus as these networks work really well with our watches.

(You can also use them abroad as they are not locked to any specific network).

Remember to top up the Sim Card that you've inserted into your Moochies Smartphone Watch, as you need to have credits on that Sim Card in order to register and pair the watch with your phone.

• If you have inserted the Sim Card, and have confirmed you have a Credit balance, make sure you've inserted the Sim Card the correct way round - there's instructions for inserting the Sim Card above.
• If you've got Credit setup, and your Sim Card is inserted correctly, try going outside, although I hope it's not raining!

Going outside gives your new Moochies Smartphone Watch direct view of the GPS satellites, and makes it quicker to update the device Location.
