Global SIM Cards are SIM Cards that work in several different countries. The primary purpose for the use of Global SIM Cards was for travelers to be able to take advantage of big savings with regards to calls and typically high roaming phone call fees. United World Telecom no longer offers Global SIM Cards, but now offers Local SIM Cards as an alternative. With Local SIM Cards, a user can have their incoming calls forwarded to a number through the use of United World Telecom’s forwarding service.
When a customer buys a Local SIM Card and their calls are forwarded to that number through the use of United World Telecom’s service, the user of the Local SIM Card has to have access and be connected through a Wi-Fi network. A softphone application must be installed or the user may instead call a local access number that is provided by United World Telecom when an inbound or outbound calling plan is purchased. If the user opts to gain access through the use of the inbound access number, they will next be prompted to dial the number they would like to call, so that they can then be connected.
