Afghanistan Prepaid SIM Card

From your new Afghani friend Hamid, you have learned a decorative new way to insult people in Afghani.

For lack of a better person to insult, you SMS your best friend Mike and tell him that he is a ferret's scrotum.

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Afghanistan or back home, prepaid SIM cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates. Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid Afghanistan SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming costs.
