Argentina Prepaid SIM Card

While walking around Buenos Aires, you've managed to get yourself involved in a game of street football with some local kids. Suddenly, the kids are shouting "Maradonna!" and pointing at a man watching the game.

You've heard that name before, but you're unsure whether it belongs to a famous soccer player or a dangerous drug lord.

Better call Uncle Pedro to find out.

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Argentina 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 Argentina 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.
