Get the National Geographic Talk Abroad 'Lite' Phone for only $59.95 This GSM international cell phone works worldwide & includes the Talk Abroad® International SIM Card, variable voltage charger, international plug adapters and free shipping! Pictured model may vary.
Our mission is simple; to provide the convenience and security of cell phone and mobile internet services to anyone traveling internationally at affordable prices and with excellent customer service. International roaming plans from Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile in the USA, and Rogers in Canada, are often difficult to understand and have many hidden costs and are beyond the budget of most travelers. In addition, some cell phones do not work internationally and getting mobile internet is almost impossible. Cellular Abroad offers cost savings solutions for making calls and staying connected via internet while you travel.
Since 2001, hundreds of thousands of customers have benefited from our services. We are proud of our A+ Better Business Bureau reputation. We offer a vast array of products and services, including the The National Geographic Travel Phone which is available for purchase or rent. If you already have an unlocked GSM cellphone you can purchase the stand alone National Geographic SIM Travel SIM Card and simply insert it into your current phone. This is a perfect solution for travelers who will visit more than one country during a trip. For travelers going to only one country, for example, only Italy or only Spain, we offer "country specific" solutions featuring incredibly low call and data rates. These are also available for rent, or as phone packages available for purchase, or stand-alone SIM cards for those who already own an unlocked GSM cell phone compatible for international use. Our MiFi devices create your own personal WiFi hotspot allowing you to access the internet with virtually any PC, phone or tablet.
If you are traveling to several countries, we recommend the National Geographic branded services. If you are traveling to only one country, please consider a "country specific" solution.
* SIM Cards with Unlimited calling are available in this country for an additional fee.
Brief Intro to our services
Global cell phone service is often confusing. Many cell phones do not work internationally and those that do are expensive using your current American or Canadian service provider. Accessing the internet is even more of a challenge. Cellular Abroad provides voice and data services for international travelers for a fraction of what you would pay with your current carrier. As all our plans are prepaid, there are no contracts to sign or monthly fees. If your currently own a phone that uses a SIM or phone or device that uses a micro SIM (such as most iPhone models or the iPad), you can use your current unlocked phone or device and just purchase a SIM. If you do not have an international phone, you can purchase or rent one from us. The information on our Service Guide will help you understand if you can use your current cellular phone, or if you should rent or buy world phone. Still, as most travelers' cellular needs are as individual as their itineraries, feel free to contact us and we will recommend the best solution for your specific needs.
International Cell Phones
Cellular Abroad sells and rents international cell phones for worldwide use. If you are traveling to one country, you can rent or purchase a cell phone for use specifically for that country with local calling and data rates (usually incredibly low) or the National Geographic Travel Phone, a world phone that works seamlessly virtually anywhere and with great rates.
International SIM Cards
We offer SIM cards with exceptional data and voice rates for use in any tablet, such as the iPad and any phone, such as the iPhone or other cell phones. If you prefer to use your current phone or need a data SIM card for your tablet, we cover nearly every country on the globe. We offer international SIM cards for travelers to multiple countries and single country SIM cards for travelers going only to one country. Single country SIMs generally have much better rates for one particular country but international SIMS, like the National Geographic Travel SIM, is one SIM card that works globally with great rates and service.
International Mobile Internet
Travelers who need to stay connected to the internet with any device including your current cell phone, tablet, PC or other device can chose from purchasing or renting a MiFi global hotspot or, if your device takes a SIM card, we offer various data SIM solutions as well. SIM cards are available in standard, micro and mini dimensions.
You can also contact us if you need assistance on international cell phone rentals or prepaid SIM cards. We are happy to provide you with information on acquiring a SIM cell phone for rent or purchase.
