Using Sobit

Users first enter their phone numbers to use Sobit, even though the system should correctly detect the operator of each phone number most of the time, the company conveyed. Once the right operator is selected, the user can check the rates, choose the desired top-up amount, type in their email address and send bitcoin through the QR code provided or via their bitcoin wallets. The company states:

We will charge your phone as soon as your bitcoin transaction gets one confirmation, which may take up to 10 minutes (it depends mostly on your bitcoin wallet and fee settings).

Bitcoin Mobile SIM Card Top-Ups Now Available in 136 CountriesUsers will also get an email confirmation with their order details. While “you should get your top-up immediately,” for some countries or operators, “there may be significant delays, even up to 24 hours,” Sobit cautioned.

Currently, only payments equivalent to $100 maximum per day will be accepted “due to technical reasons,” the company added.

On Sobit’s website, 136 countries are listed. In the U.S., supported operators include Verizon, T-mobile, AT&T, H2O, and Net10. In the UK, they include Orange, T-mobile, Virgin Mobile and Vodafone. In China, they are China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom.
