    Question International SIM card service / No roaming

    Hi everyone,

    I found few weeks ago an international called Telestial (link below). They offer pre-paid SIM card that allow you to move from country to country without paying roaming fees. They offer few voice/data plan and one data only plan.

    Are you guys aware of some other service like Telestial or have you tried it ? I am looking for a service like it that people tried already... I am mainly traveling in South America and Africa but I can be called to go everywhere on out great planet.

    Telestial : International SIM Cards from $5, International Cell Phones from $19, World and Satellite Phones
    X-op!

    History:
    Phone: 8330 -> 9700 -> 9810 OS 7.1
    Tablet: PlayBook OS2
    Work Phone: Samsung Galaxy Ace (Rooted / Unlocked with Galaxy Ace Unlock)

    Hi Xop, I've used a Telestial SIM and coverage is fine, though I've not used it in South America or Africa (mostly just Europe and US). Certainly roaming works as advertised. I just heard recently that they're planning a big change to their data plans, but not sure when this will be implemented. May be worth keeping an eye on their site for updates.

    I also have a Journey phone from them, which works on every frequency, including South Korea and Japan. Hope this helps.

    I am more looking for voice plan... Data can be obtained from hotel/office Wi-fi...

    thanks for the information!

    Thumbs up Tellink Roaming Sim card worked for me!

    I went to Europe in February! Started from Spain from there I headed over to Italy and Switzerland. I ended my Trip in the UK! I used a roaming Sim card which was great!! Its called Tellink roaming Home Page English | Tellink
    I bought it online from their website. It always worked wherever I was. The best thing about it was the free incoming calls all over Europe!
    The Data costs are very high so I didn’t use that!
    The Cool thing is i live in New Zealand and I still use it here!!
