Default MaxxSim.de with new interesting rates - 27-01-2008, 19:11

Hi all,
i just noticed that MaxxSim changed its rates.

Inside germany 8ct to landlines and 19ct to mobiles.

They now also offer very competible prices also for roaming. Free incoming calls trough Europe and some other countries like australia or south africa. They have a german mobile number +491570 (Vistream network)...

Check the rates on their calculator as they dont have a full downloadable list yet: http://www.maxxsim.de/tarifrechner.php

I have one card here - so if someone wants to test the reachability of the vistream number range please send me a message.

Chris

They require one recharge every 395 days (13 months). Otherwise they take the right to disable your card. If you are out of credit the card stays active for 13 months as well for incoming calls. If they cancel your card you can get the money refund if you tell them within 2 months.

I dont know exactly about ordering from abroad. The ordering form has a drop-down box with all countries though. Payment is possible with paypal and credit cards as well so might be possible. If you like i can email their service.

Default MaxxSIM offers true free roaming in most of EU - 28-01-2008, 17:31

The MaxxSIM card has no roaming charges for calls received in the following countries:

Tarifzone 1: Ägypten,Australia,Bahrain,Bolivien,Costa Rica,Dominikanische Republik,Finland,Gambia,Georgien,Israel,Japan,Jord anien,Kasachstan,Kongo, Laos,Mongolei,Niger,Paraguay,Seychellen,Sudan,Togo ,Trinidad & Tobago,Tschad,Uganda,Vietnam,Cyprus.

Tarifzone 2: Albania,Algerien,Armenien,Aruba,Aserbaidschan,Bots wana,Burkina Faso,Chile,Denmark,Elfenbeinküste,Faroe Islands,France,Französisch Polynesien,Französisch Guyana,Ghana,Gibraltar,Irak,Ireland,Iceland,Israel (Palestine),Italy,Jamaika,
Jemen,Kamerun,Croatia,Latvia,Libanon,Lithuania, Mauretanien,Moldau,Monaco,Montenegro,Mosambik,New Zealand,Netherlands, Nigeria,Norway,Oman,Austria,Poland,Portugal,Romani a,Sambia,Saudi Arabien,Sweden,Senegal,Serbia,Sierra Leone,Slovakia,Spain,Südafrika,Syrien,Tansania,Cze ch Republic,Tunesien,Turkey,Hungary,United Kingdom,Uruguay.


In Germany, several MVNOs offer discount call rates (10 cents/min) to MaxxSIM mobile numbers (01570-xxxxxxx). For example, simyo, etc.

Solomo currently charges 5 cents/min to MaxxSIM mobile numbers. Interestingly, solomo are going to enhance their range of voip services in February.

Congstar offers unlimited calls to eplus and vistream (including MaxxSIM) mobile numbers for 15 euro/month.

Eplus Base5 contracts offer unlimited calls to all german landline and all german mobile numbers (including MaxxSIM) for about 75 Euro/month - an online special offer. Although normal price is/was 90 Euro/month, last year, Base5 was available online for 50 Euro/month.

Eplus Base2 contracts EXCLUDE free calls to the vistream network (solomo, MaxxSIM, etc).

At last, genuine free incoming-roaming within Europe - and callers need only pay 5 cent/min when calling from Germany. Customers of Deutsche Telekom need only pay about 8 cent/min when using alternative "call-by-call" telcos.

EU countries excluded from Tarif zones 1&2: Belgium, Bulgaria, Greece, Luxemburg and Malta.

MaxxSIM has beaten MAXroam (Celtrek) to offer TRUE free roaming within most of the European Union.


****

One slight problem: At the moment, MaxxSIM cards are not receiving all of the SMS messages that are sent to them. The eplus SMSC appears not to forward all of the vistream SMS messages to the vistream SMS gateway. This problem is being fixed: a new, bigger router has been ordered.

Tip: Use http://youni-mobile.de/freesms to successfully send up to 10 free messages per day to vistream mobiles (or to any other german mobile). If you need to send more texts, sign-up for more than one free "youni" accounts.

Apparently there are two versions, one for €39 and one for €19 but I wasn't able to figure out the difference nor find an ordering page....oh damn to be so linguistically challenged.

The 39 Euro card is the (cancelled) +44 manx sim. The 19 Euro version is the MaxxSim (Vistream, +491570)... so this is the correct link: http://www.globalsim.net/index.php?l...&order=maxxsim

The betamax clones have german cellphones starting with 8ct/min (http://backsla.sh/betamax). Generally just look for german mobile rates. Its not a special number.
