Where can I get a SIM card that will work internationally?
The easiest way to get a SIM that works in a foreign country is in the foreign country
itself. But often this is actually not the easiest way to get a foreign SIM.
When you're traveling, you don't to have time to find a cell phone store,
and sort out what you need, perhaps in a different language, and potentially
have things go wrong.
For this reason, many people choose to buy a pre-paid SIM for the country or
countries they'll be traveling to before they leave home.
There are several types of
cards that are offered by companies worldwide. Some SIM cards come allready prefilled with
airtime and cost slightly higher than the ones with zero balance.
is one of the most popular prepaid SIM cards because of the number of countries it can
operate in, low airtime rates. When you get a Mobal SIM you automatically receive your
own UK based phone number that doesn't expire for as long as you keep using the card.
If you buy the SIM before you leave, you have a chance to make sure you understand how it
works, and will also know its phone number, which you can then conveniently give to
people so they know how to contact you.
What are the advantages of buying international pre-paid SIM cards?
If you travel internationally, the Mobal GSM sim card is a cheaper alternative to roaming service.
Mobal international SIM card can be used in over 160 countries around the
world including USA, United Kingdom, Mexica, Italy, Israel, Australia, Brazil,
When buying international cards there is no contract that has to be signed with a
service provider, you don't have to commit to a one or two year term like with local
providers. You just buy the SIM, use it as much or as little as you like, and stop
using it whenever you choose.
As there are no monthly fees, international prepaid SIM can often be used in place of
your regular card, however you will still be able to use your existing service and
switch the SIMs whenever you want.
You pay only for shipping initially, call charges are debited from
your credit card when call data is received from the networks
No monthly fees, and there never will be
No minimum usage requirements
Absolutely no additional roaming charges or hidden extras
Keep the same phone number every time you travel

What is Unlocking anyway?
Phones are generally sold by a wireless carrier for much less than their actual retail value. The wireless carrier often subsidizes the cost of the phone with the expectation that they can recover more than this amount throughout the subscriber's contract. They will try to make sure that the phone can only be used on their particular network, and thus, locks the phone's software to their wireless network.
Unlocking means clearing the phone's software setting so that the phone can be used on any network.
Why do I have to unlock the phone and what are the advantages?
Unlocking increases the resale value of your phone as it's not bound
to a particular carrier any more.
Unlocked phone is convenient to travel with, it can work with almost
any provider in the world - just swap the SIM cards. Subscriber can benefit from
purchasing a dual SIM card or
international prepaid SIM card in the visiting country/region as it might be less expensive than international roaming.
Wireless providers charge from 40 to 150 Dollars for an unlocking code.
