Talk Abroad® Phone Packages

Talk Abroad® & National Geographic Phone Packages with International SIM Card

If you do not already own an unlocked international cell phone or if you want a dedicated travel phone, we offer several cell phone/ SIM card package options. Each cell phone package has been selected to meet the various needs of international travelers. The National Geographic 'Lite' Travel Phone is a basic model for budget-conscious travelers and is our best seller followed by the Blu Samba featuring a QWERTY keypad, ideal for texting. Other popular handsets are 3G/WiFi enabled Speed, the Samsung Galaxy Europa also with 3G/WiFi, ANDROID 2.2 and touch-screen keyboard, particularly for those who need data, and of course the very popular iPhone4 and iPhone4s.

All phone packages offer identical rates and the same reliable yet affordable calling and data plans with service in over 200 countries. Since this is a prepaid solution, there are no contracts to sign or monthly bills – ever! Adding talk time is easy. You can use our auto recharge option which automatically tops you up when your account is low. Alternatively, you can speak to a live rep (toll free from the handset from overseas) or enter a quick sequence on your phone to add call credit.

Tip: All of our International cellular solutions below offer the same coverage and rates as well as a US and a UK phone number. In many destinations, including Europe, incoming calls are free on the UK number and $0.30 in on the US number. Since calling TO the US (or Canada) is more expensive, ask people to call you back.

Activating Your Service:
Simply make a call in order to activate your Talk Abroad International SIM card. Your service is valid for 12 months from the day of activation. Recharging your SIM card (adding talk time), extends the validity for another 12 months from the day you add the credit.  Please note that while the service does work in North America (in areas with GSM coverage), the service is intended for use overseas and therefore, placing a call from your handset in North America is expensive.

Your Phone Number:

You will have a UK phone number, regardless of where you are traveling. Your phone number will be clearly marked on the SIM card packaging.

Checking Your Credit:
You may check your credit at any time by dialing *187# on your handset. This is a free service. You will receive a text message with your current credit. You will also receive an SMS text message after each call notifying you of your current credit.

Adding Talk Time to Your SIM Card:
You can add talk time at any time - together with your purchase as well as prior to and during your trip. Choose the "Auto-credit topup" option during checkout to enable your credit to be recharged automatically every time your credit drops below $10.00. Alternatively, you can add $29 to your account at any time while traveling, instantly, by dialing *161# send from your handset.  Additional call credit is $29 for 42 minutes of talk time (for most popular destinations). Each time you add call credit or “recharge” your account, you will extend your service life for an additional 12 months from the date of the recharge.  Previous call credit will accumulate to your new call credit.

Making and Receiving Calls:

When you make a call, charges begin only when the other party answers the call or if the call goes to voicemail. Outgoing and incoming call charges, where applicable, are based on 60-second intervals.

Voice mail:
Your voice mail is already activated. You can access your voice mail system from your handset. (It's the cost of a call to the UK.) From your handset, you dial a 3 digit number as per our instructions and follow the prompts to listen to messages. You will receive a text message alerting you of any new voicemails.

SMS:
You can send and receive SMS text messages from your Talk Abroad™ international cell phone. However, we nor any carrier be responsible nor guarantee that you will always be able to send and receive SMS messages in all circumstances and in all countries. SMS text messages are free to receive and are $0.60 to send, regardless of the country.

Other SIM Cards:
If you should choose to buy a Talk Abroad™ Package, you are not "locked" into only using the SIM card that comes with the package. If you would like to use a Country Specific SIM Card in your phone, you may do so. (Obviously, if you have an unlocked GSM phone, the Talk Abroad™ card will not prevent you from using other SIM cards in your phone.)

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. Please click here for a list of our Country Specific SIM Cards.

Service Life:
The service life of your Talk Abroad™ SIM card is 12 months from the last time you added prepaid credit to your account. You will need to add call credit to your account to continue to make or receive calls or use value-added services like balance and voicemail retrieval. To extend your SIM Card service life for another 12 months, consider purchasing a recharge voucher.

Adding Talk Time to Your SIM Card

You can add talk time at any time - together with your purchase as well as prior to and during your trip. Choose the "Auto-credit topup" option during checkout to enable your credit to be recharged $29 automatically with the credit card we have on file every time your credit drops below $10.00. Alternatively, you can add $29 to your account at any time while traveling, instantly, by dialing *161# send from your handset. Additional call credit is $29 for 42 minutes of talk time (for most popular destinations).

What phone should I choose?

Our entry level packages are the most popular phones for travelers who need an easy to use, no-nonsense handset that is ideal for making and receiving calls. The Samsung phones are popular for travelers who need data connectivity and of course, the iPhones are great phones if you have the budget.

Will the phone work with other SIM cards?

Yes. All the phones we sell are unlocked and work with other SIM cards.

Will the phone work in the United States and Canada?

Yes, the phones work almost anywhere in the world, even the US and Canada. As long as you have GSM coverage, the phones will work. If you want to use this as your primary phone in the US or Canada, you might want to consider purchasing a local SIM card in order to get better rates.

How good is the coverage?

We have roaming agreements in over 200 countries with over 500 carriers. We rarely have issues with coverage.

Where can I get more talk time?

You can get additional call credit either through Cellular Abroad.

Will it work as soon as I land at my destination?

Yes and it will work in the US and Canada in areas where there is GSM coverage (ex. AT&T and T-Mobile in the US).

How much will it cost people in the USA/Canada to call me on my number?

That depends on their plan. If this is a concern to you, have them call you on your US number.

Can I keep my usual number?

Yes you can. You can simply forward your current number to your new US number. Please ask your current carrier how to do this. More questions? Call us at 800.287.5072 and we will be glad to be of assistance.
