PAYG Globe Trotter’s SIM Launched

Travel and get free incoming calls from over 50 countries.

As the news slowly dries up, the dark winters kick in and we begin thinking less about work and more about eggnog and holidays (by ‘we’ I mean ‘you’ *cough*) what about a little stocking filler for our travels…

Today sees the launch of the rather funky ‘go-sim’, a PAYG card designed specifically with the traveller in mind. Unlike traditional sims, go-sim works in over 140 countries and enables free unlimited incoming calls in over 50 countries and free incoming texts from anywhere in the world.

On top of this the go-sim provides each user with a single global number and discounted call rates which tend to match or better the newly capped EU roaming charges while offering such gems as $0.55pm from Georgia, the Ivory Coast, Japan and Kazakhstan!

Couple this with unused airtime never expiring, no call set-up fee and £5 of free starter airtime and suddenly the world has a shiny (yet affordable) gleam. Finally, the go-sim is also offered in a starter pack with a lose-it-and-you-won’t-care unlocked Motorola MOTOFONE F3 but at £54.78 and with the card itself costing just £29.99 I’d save you money and stick it in an unlocked £10 Sagem my150X – a much better bargain basementer.

Got all that? Good. Time to get back to (s)dreaming of a winter wonderland(/s) the grindstone…
