The fact is, I expected price would lower or, at least, stay the same in UE right because of the Eurotariff. I like international sims because, in case of need, I can be called without worries. Moreover, it is comfortable to use always the same number, both for UE countries and extra-UE. Last but not least, when I'm abroad I prefer being called only if it's an important matter...and an international number is a very good demarcation for this

The only hope now is that the eu gets its way and eventually we get the free reception of calls with an eu sim throughout the eu!
This would be quite useful, but I think we still have to wait to get to the 0€ threshold for incoming calls

Easy roam is another of the Isle of Man sim cards that make you pay a renewal fee every year........to me a downer.
To me too.

So far, I think Travelsim can be the best solution for me.

It is a pitty. I was standardizing on UM. There were places that 09 was cheaper, but it worked reliably and had a pretty good feature set.

You have two choices.

We could charge you a connation or daily fee or we charge a small yearly fee.
Top-up your credit within 90 days and there's no fee.


Our Service Life
The travel sim card has a fixed service life of 365 days. However to keep your sim card working for the following year, there is a renewal fee of U.S $21 (£10) This will keep your number working and any un-used calling credit valid for the next year.

If you’re roaming sim has expired, you will loose your call credit and it cannot be refunded.

Customers who purchase call credit within 90 days of there expiry date will not need to pay the network fee and all credit will be rolled over for the next 365 days.

BTW..

Easy roam...I note the yearly renewal rate is £10....which you set at $21...the exchange rate between the GBP and the USD never reached $2.10 and as a matter of fact as of today, it is under $1.50 so the proper fee should indeed be $15.....also did you adjust your other rates to reflect the current exchange rate between GBP and USD?

Responce from UM to my question why the is no more free roaming in belgium:

Dear Bob,

Thank you for your request. Unfortunately, we cannot tell you the reasons why the rates had to be changed. It is a company policy which is effected by several variables.

We are sorry if the new rate plan is unfortunate for you.



With best regards

What mobiles are covered in North America. For work, I get a mobile for USA and another for Canada currently, what providers are covered? When you say free voicemail, you mean we can call back the voicemail to pickup our messages for free or we can "receive" voicemails for free?

Thanks for clarifying...

That statement of their's makes no sense. In the U.S. there is no distinction made between calling a cell phone and calling a land line. In fact, it is now almost impossible to know for sure whether the phone you are calling is a land line or cell.
...mike


Make use of T-M's UMA/wifi free calling from any place in the world with access to wifi. I use an LG G6, 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 data in 140+ countries.

My Plan -[6 lines] U.S. T-Mobile unlimited minutes (incoming and outgoing), unlimited text, fast data on each line. that $145/mo. total! . (In U.S. no surcharge for calling a cell.) If a line exceeds 2G of data in a month, pay $10 more for that line. [That only happens a couple times/year.
