Israel Prepaid SIM Card

Walking the streets of Jerusalem is an ethereal experience. All those Bible stories you heard as a kid are coming back you you.

But you have a feeling you're getting the stories mixed up, and it's detracting somewhat from the experience.

Oh well, your godfather the reverend will be able to set the stories straight for you and he is just a phone call away.

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

All incoming calls while in Israel are FREE, regardless of where they originate. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone in Israel like you do at home. And unlike home, your Israel SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

The SIM Card for Israel includes:

  • US $12 starter airtime
  • A local cell phone number in Israel
  • FREE incoming calls
  • SMS (text messaging)
  • Voicemail
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check
