It's Carnaval time in Brazil and you're partying in the streets of Rio with the masses.
Back home your poor work colleague is working the regular eight hour days next to your empty cubicle.
You think to yourself: "Better give him a call and cheer him up with the sounds of Carnaval."
For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Brazil 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 Brazil 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.
A prepaid Brazil SIM card with an international cell phone is the most convenient and economical solution for staying in touch while in Brazil. All incoming calls while in Rio de Janeiro are FREE and only $0.50 USD per call everywhere else, regardless of where they originate. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone in Brazil like you do at home. And unlike home, your Brazil SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

Starting at just US$ 9 (with credit included!), these cards represent good value for travellers interested in having only one SIM card and phone number to cover multiple countries, whilst keeping roaming charges in check.
