How long are you staying? Maybe you could also consider a calling card...

I only have about 6 and find it hard enough to keep track of when they expire, need to be used, etc. I don't know how you keep up with 10.

Hehe. That is a good question.
Fortunately there are some contract cards among them so i need to keep up with expiry dates only with 4 SIM. But as they are all used quite regularly i mostly top up long time before any expiry dates.

To Prion: We'll be there just for a week and visiting a bunch of clients. I hope I dont need too much calling - but if i need to call it will be mostly during the meetings...

Default Surcharges - 19-05-2007, 19:22

There is a lot of mention of surcharges and their effect on price - this is something that the local carrier (eg in Mexico) does to discourage roaming cards in one of two situations 1) They get minimal revenue 2) they have the called party paid model. They generally overcompensate (and really take advantage at times) but the surcharges will be the same for every foreign SIM that comes in. What maks it worse is they have the ability to change these without notice, always charge by the minute and add all sorts of local taxes. Therefore, if one card supplier imposes a surcharge then be very suspicious of any that do not becasue they are impossible to avoid.

EU pricing still remains a 'smoke and mirrors' exercise that I do not believe will have an overall positive impact on pricing, it will just change the profile of charges and packages.

The 09 card works fine with Telefonica and callbacks with CBW work as well. Sound quality is very good.

Make use of T-M's UMA/wifi free calling from any place in the world with access to wifi. I use an LG4, wife an S7)
A/o Oct 20, 2013 no need for intl prepaid as T-Mobile U.S. includes voice roaming at 20/min (in and out)., unlimited text (in and out), and unlimited EDGE data in 140+ countries.

My Plan -[6 lines] U.S. T-Mobile unlimited minutes (incoming and outgoing), unlimited text, 2G fast data on each line, unlimited "slow" data after that $120/mo. total! [plus $25 taxes] . (In U.S. no surcharge for calling a cell.)
