German SIM Card
The SIM card we offer for Germany is the perfect solution for travelers who need a cost effective and reliable solution for staying in touch while traveling in Germany. Lebara, the carrier, utilizes the T-Mobile network and provides coverage virtually throughout Germany. Call rates are exceptionally low - just pennies to call the US and Canada and unlimited free incoming calls. In addition, you can add and optional 3G data package and, to make it affordable for callers from the US to call to you, you can add a US phone number to your SIM card.
Add a data package to your SIM card with 3GB of data at 3G speeds for just $69. This offer is good for 30 days from the first day of usage. This is a convenient and affordable way to securely access the internet from your smartphone. Browse the web, check emails, use Google Maps, Skype, stream videos or plan your trip anytime, anywhere from your device without having to rely on finding wifi hotspots which are not readily available and never a secure way to connect to the internet.

In addition, you can forward your current US number to the new one ensuring that you are seamlessly reachable.

Will the Germany SIM card work with my phone?
As long as your cell phone is unlocked and has the 900 and 1800 Mhz bands, it is compatible with your phone.
How do I know if my phone is unlocked?
You cannot tell physically if your cell phone is unlocked. If you are with AT&T and you put a different SIM card (such as T-Mobile) in and it picks up a network, it is unlocked. Conversely, if you put another SIM card in and it says, “enter subsidy code” or similar, it is locked. Call your carrier to check to see if your phone is unlocked or if it qualifies for being unlocked.
Do you offer micro and nano SIM cards?
Yes we do. They are available during checkout.
Why don’t I just purchase a SIM card when I get to Germany?
Purchasing a SIM card for your phone when you arrive in Germany is inconvenient. Most people do not want to cut into their vacation time in order to do so. Plus, they want to have the phone number before they leave and their phone available to use as soon as they arrive. In addition, the Lebara German card has better rates and bundles than SIM cards available in Germany and has English instructions and English speaking customer service.
How good is the coverage?
In a word; excellent. As a rule of thumb, as long as there are roads that are traveled on and houses where people live, there is coverage.
Where can I get more talk time?
You can get additional call credit either through Cellular Abroad or through any convenient store. Ask for a recharge voucher for Lebara Germany.
Will it work as soon as I land in Germany?
Yes, for calling and texting. If you purchased the 3GB data bundle you will need to send a text (per the instructions) to activate the plan.
Does it work outside of Germany?
Yes but you will incur roaming rates. Unless you are taking a short trip outside of Germany (ex. Austria for the day), we don’t recommend roaming with your SIM card.
How much will it cost people in the USA/Canada to call me on my German number?
That depends on their plan. A great option is to add the “US Number” feature to your service. Each $19 will give you 240 minutes of incoming calls on a US number.
Can I keep my usual number?
Yes you can. Purchase the US Number add on and forward your current number to the new one (ask your carrier what the procedure is). This is ideal for business travelers who need to be reached at all times but is also a double edged sword for travelers going for a bit of rest and relaxation as anyone who calls your usual number will reach you. Another option is just to give a select few your new US number.
Can I use the SIM card next year when I go to Germany?
Perhaps. You must add call credit at least once every 6 months to retain your number and service.
