Pity my Vodafone UK card has expired... Pity that promotion is for a limited period only.

Postpaid Vodafone Hungary customers choosing the "Europa" plan can call and divert their calls to Vodafone UK numbers for less than 0.09 EUR/min gross at today's HUF/EUR rate. That was why I had a Vodafone UK and Vodafone HU card when I was working in the UK. Now that would cover several other countries as well.

3x Vodafone (HU) 1x T-Mobile) formerly also Pannon
Prepaid:
Vodafone, Pannon, T-Mobile (HU) Optimus (PT) SamiSwoi, ERA, Orange (PL) VIP (HR) T-Mobile (AT) Vodafone, O2, Orange, T-Mobile (UK) Vodafone (DE) Data-only prepaid: Vodafone, T-Mobile, Djuice/Pannon (HU)
International SIMs: UM+, Sim4Travel, TravelSim
Phones: Nokia E51, E71, Samsung D880, SE P990i, Ericsson T39m -forever! , many others in the drawer. 3G modems Huawei E220, E870, EU870D, U740, Alcatel X200

If you have a UK address, up to four free pay as you go vodaphone sims can be ordered online here:

There's no minimum term contract, no strings attached – and delivery is free.

Default Terms and conditions of the free sim offer - 14-05-2009, 18:23

I have just read the terms and conditions of the free sim offer. In this text vodafone refers to the Anynet and Anytime tariffs - not the Simply tariff, which is the PAYG tariff for receiving free incoming european calls this summer. What a pity!

Perhaps its worth ordering a free vodafone sim anyway.

Terms and conditions for those interested in the offer: http://online.vodafone.co.uk/dispatc...ageID=PTC_0007

Default New PAYG sims are perhaps on the Simply tariff - 14-05-2009, 18:38

I have just found a page on the vodafone website that says that the older Anynet and Anytime tariffs are no longer available. My guess is that vodafone is shipping new PAYG sims that are on the Simply tariff.

According to this list, free DIDs are available for Romania, and perhaps Pakistan.

If used within the UK to call US/Canada, it's a bargain at 5p/min.
