Sri Lanka Prepaid SIM Card

One morning in Sri Lanka you decide to get off the beaten track. Delving deep into the jungle, you suddenly find yourself bowled over by a leopard.

With its teeth bared, you know the leopard is just biding its time before it tears you to bits.

Suddenly, your phone rings, scaring the leopard. As it runs away back into the forest, you say a quick prayer of thanks that you brought your phone with you!

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Sri Lanka 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 Sri Lanka 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 Sri Lanka SIM card with an international cell phone is the most convenient and economical solution for staying in touch while you travel in Sri Lanka. The first 30 seconds of all incoming calls while you travel in Sri Lanka are FREE, regardless of where they originate. The Sri Lanka SIM card provides service across Sri Lanka through domestic roaming. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone in Sri Lanka like you do at home. And unlike home, your Sri Lanka SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

The SIM Card for Sri Lanka includes:

  • 800 Rs. ($8.25) starter airtime credit
  • FREE incoming calls for first 30 seconds
  • A local cell phone number in Sri Lanka
  • International calls are only $0.25/minute
  • SMS text messaging
  • GPRS -- High speed data
  • Voicemail
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check

Please Note: Your Sri Lanka 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.
