Roaming SIM Cards

Roaming SIM Cards are SIM Cards that work in multiple countries. The purpose of using Roaming SIM Cards was for those traveling to save on roaming charges. United World Telecom no longer offers Roaming SIM Cards, but instead offers an alternative. The alternative is to instead buy a Local SIM Card and have any incoming calls forwarded to that number through United World Telecom’s service.

How Local SIM Cards Work

After a customer purchases a Local SIM Card and calls are subsequently forwarded to that number through United World Telecom’s service, the user of the Local SIM Card must connect to a Wi-Fi network and install a softphone application, or call a local access number that is specified by United World

Telecom once an inbound or outbound calling plan has been purchased. When calls are made through an inbound access number, callers are then prompted to dial the number they are aiming to call and they are then connected.

SIM Cards are needed for identification purposes for every GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) phone. SIM Cards hold account, data, and payment information and limits, which serve the purpose of communicating the status of a subscriber to their carrier. In most countries across the globe, a user has the option to prepay for minutes on SIM cards or choose to receive a bill later on instead. For persons who travel, whether for business or personal purposes, a SIM Card signifies a substantially lower cost option to often-excessive roaming charges tied to the user’s home carrier. The purchase of a Local SIM Card as an alternative to Roaming SIM Cards can resolve the issue of high costs by allowing a user to purchase a Local SIM Card that is local to whichever country they are traveling to and allowing a user to subsequently be responsible for local calling charges versus high roaming charges.

If a user only uses a data connection when making and receiving calls with the Local SIM Cards, then the calls can wind up costing close to nothing or nothing at all.
