Data SIM Card FAQs
Why do I need a data SIM card?
If you need a convenient and affordable way to have data connectivity for your phone, tablet or hotspot, a Cellular Abroad data SIM card is the easiest way to do so and is also much less expensive than roaming with Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T or other carriers. In addition, since the service is pay as you go, you do not risk incurring a huge roaming bill.
Why don’t I just use wifi?
Some people can. If you do not need to access the internet often then the internet at your hotel, if available, or wifi at cafés or other places in town may be fine. Keep in mind that wifi is not as prevalent in Europe or Latin America as it is in North America. In addition, just like back home, you may want to have internet access at your fingertips. This is particularly important when traveling so you can use apps such as Googlemaps, Skype and research places.
Can I get a micro or a nano SIM card?
Yes. You have this option before you add the item to your cart.
How to I activate my SIM?
Put it in your device. It’s that simple!
Can I add additional credit?
No, additional credit cannot be added. You must purchase an additional data SIM card if you need another 1GB of data.
Does the credit expire?
The data credit is good for 30 days from the first day of usage.
Does the SIM card expire?
The SIM card expires in 365 days from the first day of usage unless you add additional data. Each time you add credit extends the expiry date another 365 days.
How far in advance should I order?
You can order a data SIM card at any time prior to your departure or even during your trip. However, if you order it 2 weeks or more before your trip, you can take advantage of the free shipping.
How much data do I need?
This varies considerably from user to user but, on average, a PC user will use between 100-200MB per day, a tablet user about half that and a smartphone about 25-50MB.
How much data do emails use?
On average, 50MB will get you about 250 emails unless there are heavy files or attachments associated with them.
How much data does Skype use?
A 15 minute video call about 10mb. A 15 minute audio call about half that.
As a rule of thumb, any place where there is a city or town will have great coverage but there is no such thing as “coverage everywhere.” Even in cities such as New York and Los Angeles, there will be areas with no converage. Rural areas or, for example, a villa in the middle of Tuscany often do have coverage but not always. Feel free to ask us and we will check the coverage, the approximate coverage. The only way to know 100% if there is coverage in a particular place, like a villa, is to ask someone or to go there. For example, there may be coverage in a villa 100 feet away but not at another one. In sum however, coverage is very good.More questions?
