If you plan on visiting the United States any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The USA SIM card provides a simple, convenient, and affordable way for any traveler to make and receive those all-important calls while abroad.
The Simple Calling SIM card for the USA is a practical option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid USA cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a USA cell phone rental. It’s also a trouble-free ticket to using the same options that the Americans themselves use—the local American cell phone system. 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 likewise enjoy the benefit of voicemail and a local cell phone number in the USA. The prepaid feature gives you complete control over your costs, and with our low domestic and international calling rates, having a cell phone in the USA is affordable for all. And with the ability to send and receive text messages in the United States for as low as $0.09 per minute, you’ll never have to leave important contacts hanging. Access to customer service from your USA cellular phone is available 24 hour a day, so you’ll always have assistance with any unexpected issues or questions about your calls. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.
Your United States SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 850 and 1900 frequencies. If you do not have your own international cell phone, we have several models available for your consideration. Please click here for more information.
