Egypt Prepaid SIM Card

Your dad is absolutely convinced that the Egyptian pyramids are the works of aliens. For some random reason, you decided to pack an ET mask in your luggage.

For another random reason, you take a photo of yourself standing in front of the pyramids wearing your ET mask.

For obvious reasons, you send it to your dad.

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

What our partner Telestial says

A prepaid Egypt SIM card with an international cell phone is the most convenient and economical solution for staying in touch while in Egypt. All incoming calls while in Egypt are FREE, regardless of where they originate. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone in Egypt like you do at home. And unlike home, your Egypt SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

The SIM Card for Egypt includes:

  • $18.00 (EGP 105) starter airtime credit
  • A local cell phone number in Egypt
  • FREE incoming calls
  • Voicemail
  • SMS
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check

Please Note: Your Egypt SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM 900 compatible international cell phone. If you do not have your own international cell phone, Telestial has several compatible models available for your review and consideration.

Global SIM Cards

Both Telestial and ekit offer a range of region specific and global SIM cards. 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.
