OneSimCard International SIM Review & Rating
Editor Rating: 4 stars, "Excellent"

Free incoming calls nearly everywhere. Lots of calling options. Flexible Web-based account management.

"OneSimCard is a terrific tool for people who are traveling abroad and who expect to be receiving a lot of calls. Pop the card into your phone and you'll get much lower rates than you would just roaming with your carrier. OneSimCard's major strength is its free incoming calls in 150 countries. You should definitely consider OneSimCard if you're doing a multi-country journey, especially if you're a big talker. We rated OneSimCard 4 [out of 5] stars and strongly recommend it."

Frugal Traveler: How to Avoid a Smartphone’s Bite

"As many people have learned the hard way, calling and texting while abroad can bring painful bills. What you should do: If your phone is “unlocked,” meaning you can use other providers, get an international SIM card. I tested OneSimCard's Standard card this summer. Web browsing was surprisingly affordable in many places. Prices have dropped recently, to as little as 25 cents a megabyte with OneSimCard’s Daily Data Package. Most of the time, you can travel from one country to another and your phone is unfazed, simply switching from one local company to another. You load your phone with credits and set your account to reload automatically. [They] have excellent American-based customer service."

"The global SIM card is like a satellite in your pocket, granting [cell phone] service in nearly every country on the map. I made and accepted numerous calls...with the casualness of sitting at Starbucks on Connecticut Avenue. And I received one of the biggest surprises of my trip when my phone unexpectedly rang in Mongolia. I answered it and heard an earful about the day’s events at home."
