Listen to an Overview
Roaming with your US or Canadian carrier while in Israel can be expensive and frustrating. Carriers boasting "free" data neglect to point out that the data speeds are significantly reduced and virtually unusable. Some carriers do not offer any service in Israel, period. A better solution is to swap out your SIM card from your unlocked cell phone or tablet and use one of our Israel SIMs.
We offer two plans for travelers who need an Israel SIM. The first offers unlimited calls only within Israel plus 30GB of data at 4G/LTE speeds. The second plan offers unlimited calling within Israel as well as to the US plus 200GB of data of 4G/LTE speeds. You can save some money with the first plan by using an app such as Skype or WhatsApp to make international calls whereas the second, although a bit more expensive, allows direct dialing. Both plans are good for 30 days from the day that you communicate to us via email the date that you would like the plan activated (as per the instructions included with the SIM). If your trip is longer than 30 days, you can purchase an extra month or months.
The carrier is Cellcom, one of the largest in Israel.
US Number Add-on
In addition to the Israel phone number provided with the SIM card, you can add-on a US phone number. This option allows you to forward your current phone number to the new one and therefore to keep your US number. Many travelers, specifically those on vacation, do not want anyone and everyone to be able to reach them on their usual number and will just give their important contacts the new US number. This option is just $19 for 6 hours of incoming calls for 30 days. Addition bundles are available at the same price. Please note this option does not forward text messages.
Both plans are an exceptional value. Most choose the international plan as you can call to the US with direct dialing but more and more users are discovering how simple it is to use Skype or WhatsApp or other apps to make international calls. If you are planning on watching a lot of videos or use a tremendous amount of GPS, we recommend the Professional Plan.
Israel SIM card Frequently Asked Questions
When do I get my phone number(s)?
Your cellular phone number for Israel and the US (if applicable) is available to you as soon as we ship it to you. It is also on the physical invoice we send you as well as on the packaging.
How do I activate your service?
You will need to send us an email regarding the date that you need the SIM card to start to work. The service is good for 30 days.
How good is the coverage?
The coverage in Israel is exceptional. Like all carriers, there are of course areas where there is no or poor coverage. As a rule of thumb, where people live/work, there will be coverage.

While your SIM card may "roam" in the US and other places, we strongly advise against using it outside of Israel as the roaming rates are expensive.
