International Roaming on Mobile
If you are someone who spends a great deal of time in foreign countries, then chances are you will need a phone that allows you to access it in different countries. While it may be possible to get an unlocked cell phone and purchase SIM cards from different countries, that is not the most convenient way of getting access. Alternatively, some end up getting international mobile roaming on their domestic cell phone package. This can be useful for a short trip, but it can get very expensive if it is for a longer period of time, or if a lot of calls/texts are made.
This is where and international SIM card comes into the picture. You will choose a package that is right for your needs. Once a package is chosen, you will order online, or on the telephone, and you will get a SIM card that will be mailed to you. The SIM card will come with a new cell phone number that will be yours to keep. This number will not change, no matter where you travel. The SIM card will be programmed to work in 220 different countries around the world. This means no matter where you are you will be able to get cell phone reception from the moment you land. Gone are the days of having to switch SIM cards on the airplane, or waiting to purchase a disposable SIM from the airport. You will get supreme service, convenience, quality and affordability.
The cheapest plan is available for $30 per month. This gives you 100 minutes in most countries, as well as 50 additional minutes if you are in Europe or Canada. There are no texts available in this plan, but texts can be used on a pay as you go basis for received and sent text messages. The more pricey plans range from $80 to $225, and they all depend on how much you need to use your phone. There is also an option to add data connectivity for an additional $20 to each plan.
