Mobile Telephones & Sim Cards

Using Sim Cards and Mobile Phones abroad

I often travel to the USA, so I always try to take my mobile phone. I have tried several ways of buying Sim cards.

One of the cards I purchased last year was from go, which appeared to be relatively cheap. The price started at approximately £27 and once they had added delivery charges and various small fees. The bill came to about £40. I found that within 2 days even less I had used up my call charges for making local calls. Have you tried this service if so, what do you think of it? Please email me: and I will publish you review.

Here is what say out their product: 
The US go-sim™ prepaid card is the least expensive and straightforward solution for making and receiving cellular phone calls while you are in the US. With fantastic coverage across the USA you will be able to stay in touch at an affordable rate.

Our simple call rates mean that you to make calls within the USA and to 70 other countries (from within the USA) for only 35 US cents (about £0.18 or €0.26) per minute*.”

 Another Sim Card Service Provider I have found is, I recently came across the Sales Representative for this company who says they are the cheapest. Have you tried them, if so what do you think of them? Please let me know. Email me and I will publish your review.

Here is what mycherrymobile say out their product:

Cherry Mobile is  the premier low cost international mobile network operator. The Cherry roaming SIM Card is designed to work in the majority of countries worldwide, ensuring you are always connected. Cherry Prepay / Pay As You Go and Contract offers exceptional international mobile tariffs, resulting in significant savings when you make and receive calls (receiving calls is free in many countries using Cherry!).

Simply check that your mobile phone is unlocked and compatible (most are) and slot in the Cherry SIM when you go overseas. Some prefer to carry a second phone, fitted with a Cherry SIM, purely for use when overseas. Either way your local SIM contract (O2, Vodafone, Three, Orange, T-Mobile, Virgin) remains unaffected.”

 Mobile Roaming while abroad:
We often get ripped off with International roaming charges, I recently watched Martin Lewis – Money Saving Expert on GMTV, discussing
how to get the cheapest international calls.

 Have you tried T- Mobile – Pay as you go sim cards?
The cheapest card is £5, which also gives you £5 of free calls! I have found these to be very reasonable when travelling to the USA. I simply purchase a new one each to I go on holiday to the USA.

I don’t whether I has anything to do with T- Mobile be a USA Mobile telephone provider but my sim card seems to last me longer!

If You have any views on using sim cards aboard please email me your comment and I will publish them,
