If you plan on visiting Austria any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Austria SIM card provides a simple, convenient, and affordable way for any traveler to make and receive those all-important calls while abroad.
The prepaid SIM card for Austria is a trouble-free option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Austrian cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for an Austria cell phone rental. The SIM chip, combined with an unlocked GSM World cell phone, helps you keep the lines of communication open without being burdened by high international roaming surcharges applicable when you use your “home” SIM card abroad. You’ll also enjoy the benefit of 20 EUR ($24 USD) of starter airtime credit, SMS text messaging, voicemail, e-mail, a local Austrian cell phone number, and free incoming calls. What’s more, you’ll have 24 hour a day access to customer service simply by dialing 0650 650 from your Austria cellular phone. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.
Your Austria SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 1800 frequency. If you do not have your own international cell phone, we have several models available for your consideration. Please click here for more information.
All domestic calls are billed per minute for outgoing calls within Austria from your prepaid local Austria SIM card while you are in Austria. All your incoming calls, regardless of where they originate, are FREE while you are in Austria.
Peak times: 7:00 -19:00, Monday to Friday
You can call to anywhere from your world cell phone with your prepaid Austria SIM card. All calling rates are billed per minute for international outgoing calls from an Austria prepaid SIM card. All your incoming calls, regardless of where they originate, are FREE while you are in Austria.
Your local Austria SIM card comes with an initial airtime balance. If you plan on using your phone more frequently, you may need to add additional airtime to your account. Additional airtime is available through the purchase of a Twist-Refill, which is an airtime credit voucher, not another SIM card. Twist credit vouchers are available locally in Austria at local Tabac shops, convenience stores, TeleRing shops and authorized dealers. To add the voucher, simply scratch off the grey protective layer to reveal your reload code. When typed into the keypad of your international cell phone, the reload code will credit your local Austria SIM card the respective Euro denomination you purchased.
Remember you do not need to purchase another SIM card when your airtime balance is depleted! You only need a recharge voucher! As long as your SIM card is active incoming calls are always free, even when you run out of airtime.
If you do not recharge your Austria SIM card within 15 months, your Austria mobile phone number will be recycled and any remaining airtime credit will be forfeit. To get connected again you will be required to purchase a new local Austria SIM card. This 15 month period starts the day you arrive in Austria and start using your cellular phone.
