Most recent time I did this I got a 1-month prepaid SIM card from T-Mobile. I think was something like $70 with tax and a SIM card to fit my phone. There was a couple G of LTE data and some phone time. Pretty painless- maybe 5 minutes in the shop. Here are their current rates. It worked out okay, but coverage was a bit spotty outside major cities. The data ...

Because I think it's not really well known I started the question just to answer it myself. Right now it seems to be Bitel. They're service is not yet spreaded like Movistar or Claro, but they're developing. So they're the first we came across with a flat rate like we're used to from Germany. Bitel got different pre-payed plans. 1 day flat 1 month flat ...

It has no disadvantages to you to use the international phone format when calling from a GSM or newer technology cell phone. If you are calling a national subscriber with the international prefix, your call will still be billed as a national call. YMMV in other, older cell networks, if you should happen to find something like that. The obvious advantage to ...

Besides more global solutions like http://www.onesimcard.com, there are no 'local' sim cards for multiple South American countries, comparable to Africa's Airtel. On top of that, South American cellphone networks tend to be somewhat fractured, meaning that out-of-the-way locations might only be served by one, or a few, of the nation's networks.

I would recommend myself that you try https://mycall.no/ these are both prepaid cards and plans, MyCall's entire gimmick is that you can cheaply call the entire World/Europe from Norway/to Norway etc.. You can "top up" your prepaid card online also.

if you have a US number, then US users should pay their normal text fee, while non-US users would have to pay whatever they would normally have to pay to text the US (I can't see anything on the AT&T passport or roaming pages about the cost for others to contact you. This supports the idea that the cost for others to contact you is the same as if you ...

Walk in the next "Hofer" supermarket and buy an "Hot" SIM card. The package contains a Micro-SIM and adapters for phones that require Mini or normal size SIM cards. The SIM card costs €2 and you can activate it yourself and choose your plan online. You can choose between a contract (€6.9 per month, 3GB data) that can be canceld monthly or a prepaid version ...

There's an entire wiki dedicated to this exact question! http://prepaid-data-sim-card.wikia.com/ I'm marking this as a community wiki-answer in case anyone wants to dig into the pretty significant amount of work required to expand this answer with rates and options available for the US. :-)

Weirdly I thought we had this question, but the only question seems to be in relation to Canada in North America... Yes, you can. I've done so the last two years, and intend doing this again in June/July this year. Which company you use depends on your requirements and the deals, of course, but I just went into a couple and asked what they had, and then ...

Probably every major provider has something in this direction (that is, I know that two have it, not sure for one, and everything else are just resellers of these three) Recommendation: A1 has (at least) two prepaid data plans, best coverage (measured, not subjectivly), etc., see below. Don't use: "3", because since they merged with another company, ...
