Getting Started With an unlocked Tri-band GSM phone, the world is at your fingertips
You want to go overseas with your cell phone but don’t want to pay the colossal fees. Even if you do bring your local phone, how can you be sure it will work once you get there?
Cell phones are basically radio devices that communicate with the nearest cellular antenna site to provide you with service. It would have been easy if all the world-wide cellular providers used the same technology, but they don’t. Outside of North America, the standard technology is called GSM (Global Services for Mobile). Consequently, travelers require a GSM Cell phone and SIM card to communicate overseas. This standardization outside of North America has made most US and Canadian phones obsolete when abroad.
To make things even more complicated, North American cellular service providers, such as, Cingular, T-Mobile, Rogers and Fido tend to lock their subscriber’s cell phones to prevent you from using another company’s services while you are away. So even if you already own a GSM Cell phone, it might be locked to your current service provider.
The ultimate solution is to get an Unlocked Tri-Brand GSM Cell Phone. We offer a selection of new phones from brand names like Siemens, Sony Ericsson and Motorola to accompany you on your next trip overseas. At SimphoneE, we are your cellular passport to the world!
Global and Local SIM cards will provide coverage and great rates wherever you go
A SIM card (Subscriber Identification Module) is a microchip that identifies your profile to the cellular network so that it would be able to process your call according to your plan. This little chip is the brains and the enabler of your cellular service.
The SIM card is physically located in the back of the cellular phone, usually behind the battery. It can be easily removed and replaced.
Provided that your tri-band GSM phone is unlocked, you have the choice of selecting the SIM card (thus the service) to insert into your phone. Choosing the right service for you depends on your travel and usage profile.
It's important that you study your alternatives as the differences could be as much as ten fold.
Global SIM cards feature FREE incoming calls and no roaming charges in more than 100 countries, and coverage in over 170.

These SIM card offer significant savings compared to the roaming plans of the North American carriers.

Callback – Reverse the direction of the call and save. With international calls the direction of the call matters. For example, calling from the US to a cellular number in Spain could cost much less than making the same call in the opposite direction. The Callback system lets you call from abroad with the lower rates of the reversed direction. Using this service is as easy as using a regular calling card. Follow-me – keep your number when traveling. Have your home calls reach you wherever you travel. Forward your calls to a US number that will redirect them to your cellular travel number, or any other number around the world. Calling cards – use local toll free access numbers to call from abroad at great rates.
