With the National Geographic Talk Abroad® Travel SIM, we make international cellular service easy and affordable for anyone traveling overseas. The National Geographic Travel SIM is compatible with any unlocked GSM cell phone with the appropriate GSM bands. The SIM card has two phone numbers, a US based number as well as a UK based number. Both numbers are always active and do not require a monthly fee. Incoming calls on the UK number are free in more than 70 countries. There is a $0.30 per minute charge to all calls made to the U.S.-based number.
You can forward your US or Canadian number to the US number and get the same benefits as roaming without the fees! Or, you can give some of your contacts your new US number and other contacts your UK number. Adding additional talk time is a snap. You may opt for our 'auto recharge' option which automatically keeps your credit above $10.00, or you can speak to a live rep (toll free) - you can even simply enter a 5-digit code on your handset to add call credit.
The Talk Abroad network also supports data functions, so if you need a data solution that works in 130+ countries, with 3G speed available in over 70 popular destinations, the National Geographic Talk Abroad Travel SIM Card is an excellent value.
Unlocked iPhone 4, 4s, iPad and Nokia Lumia 900 users can now take advantage of the National Geographic Talk Abroad SIM Card! Choose the Micro-SIM add-on during checkout and our expert staff will resize your SIM Card to conform to Apple Micro-SIM device standards. Cutting your SIM card down to fit an iPhone or iPad can be dangerous; you may cut it incorrectly, or cut the gold contacts improperly and invalidate your SIM. Don't trust a Youtube how-to video when Cellular Abroad can guarantee your Micro-SIM will work in your unlocked device, or we will replace it at no extra cost.
Whether you are a frequent business traveler or a tourist seeking a reliable yet affordable calling solution, the National Geographic Talk Abroad® Travel SIM will cover you in over 200 countries. Since this is a prepaid solution, there are no contracts to sign or monthly bills – ever!
* Inbound and outbound SMS text messaging not available from the U.S.-based number
** Express options also available

How much credit will I need to use the Talk Abroad SIM for Data service?
The Talk Abroad SIM Card comes with data service already enabled. If you are travelling to European countries, here's a quick guide to how much internet usage you can get from one $29 credit:
If you are only traveling for a short period of time, and don't intend on using the Talk Abroad SIM Card again in the future, we now offer the Talk Abroad SIM Card for rental only. The call rates are the same as the rates listed above. When renting a Talk Abroad SIM Card from Cellular Abroad, there's no further obligation after you return from your trip, other than to send the rental SIM Card back to our office, which effectively ends your SIM Card rental. If you need more information on renting our SIM Card, call our main office hotline at 1-800-287-5072.

Adding Talk Time to Your SIM Card:
As an example, if you are traveling to Germany, the rate is $1.04 per MB – so if you use only 100kb, you will be billed roughly $0.10. One recharge ($29) will get you around 28MB of data in Germany.
To set up data, all you need to do is set your APN to "mobiledata" - this can be done in your phone's connection settings. You can set this up on your phone using our Data Service Guide.
Due to the way they are manufactured, RIM Blackberry model handsets are not compatible with our data services.
Other SIM Cards:
A Country-Specific SIM Card is usually advantageous if you plan to spend a certain portion of your trip in a specific country (or countries) in order to take advantage of that country's rates, usually including unlimited free incoming calls.
