|Cell Phone Purchases for Canadian Customers
Canadian cell phone users are amongst those who pay the highest roaming fees in the world for international cell phone service. Luckily, Cellular Abroad offers solutions for international cellular service that are among the lowest rates available. Cellular Abroad offers cell phone sales as well as international SIM cards.
If you are planning a short trip to Europe or Asia, your best bet is to rent a GSM cell phone from Cellular Abroad. The service is prepaid and offers unlimited free incoming calls in all of Europe as well as several other countries.
If you are a frequent overseas traveler, it is probably in your best interest to purchase a cell phone package with a prepaid SIM card. We ship our all of our products from our warehouse in California which means that you may incur a duty fee. Approximately 1 package out of 10 pays duty. Many of our phones can also be used in Canada with your current provider.
A third option that Cellular Abroad offers is international SIM cards. If you have an unlocked cell phone with the 900 and 1800 GSM frequencies, you can simply purchase an international SIM card from Cellular Abroad. Again, SIM cards are shipped from our California facility
Is Your Mobile Locked or Unlocked?
Before buying a SIM for another country for use with an existing mobile handset, it will need to be determined whether your current handset is "locked". A locked phone will only function with the SIM that came with the phone. Unlocked handsets will function with any SIM card. The best method to determine whether your mobile handset is unlocked, is to insert a SIM from a different carrier.
