USA Prepaid SIM Card

On a whim, you signed up for the Backpackers' Edition of Who Wants to be a Millionaire. To your stunned surprise, you make it onto the show!

When you decide to call a friend for the $64,000 question though, you realize that you forgot to bring your phone. Now you don't know your friend's number!

Should have brought your phone…

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in USA 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 USA 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 USA SIM card with an international cell phone is the most convenient and economical solution for staying in touch while in the USA. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone in the USA like you do at home. And unlike home, your USA SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

The SIM Card for USA includes:

  • $10 starter airtime credit
  • A local cell phone number in The United States
  • Voicemail
  • Send or Recieve text messages for as low as 5? per message (domestic only)
  • Exclusive Rewards Program with FREE bonus minutes
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check

Please Note: Your USA SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM 850/1900 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.

USA Calling Card

For those not interested in travelling with a mobile, calling cards are a great way to call home cheaply. Consider these benefits:

  • Save up to 70% on international calls
  • Make calls from over 150 countries worldwide
  • No sign-up or monthly fees
  • Toll-free access numbers
  • Pay in advance or pay later
  • And much more...

We've compared two popular calling cards to illustrate some benefits. Visit the International Calling Cards page for details. Or visit both providers directly to compare for yourself.
