The SIM works in over 200 countries including all major business and tourist destinations and either of the UK or US numbers can be called at any time no matter which country the SIM is roaming in.
One SIM With Two Phone NumbersTechnically known as a “Multi IMSI SIM Card”, the single SIM is capable of having more than one country specific phone number assigned to it. Currently the GeoSIM is programmed with a UK +44 and a US +1 number, but it also has the capability to have additional country specific numbers assigned “over the air”. This powerful feature means that travellers will be able to have a local phone number for the country they are in on the one SIM card.
Ed Neal, Managing Director of Geodesa Limited, who distribute GeoSIM says, “Our new SIM card is generating a huge amount of interest and demand from customers and dealers alike. Not only are our European call rates lower than the new EU Roaming tariffs, we’ve also extended them to cover the USA, effectively abolishing Roaming Charges in the US.”
Instead of paying in the region of 1 ($1.50) per minute to receive calls in the USA, there will be no charge when called on the UK number. Receiving calls in Europe is also free of charge. Calls made within the USA or back to Europe cost 0.28 ($0.46) per minute and an SMS Text message costs 0.09 ($0.15). This is an impressive saving on calling costs of over 70% when compared with a standard GeoSIM or other major network SIMs when roaming in the US.
When in the US, GeoSIM will work on the AT&T and T-Mobile networks so effectively giving better coverage countrywide than a single US network SIM.
Ed goes on to say, “The convenience of being able to have multiple numbers on one SIM card is huge for anyone who regularly travels to more than one country. It avoids the need to carry local SIM cards and means that the locals can call you on your local number no matter where you are in the world.”
GeoSIM also has a number of additional features including a comprehensive online “back office”, real-time itemised call billing, global call forwarding, call recording, conference calling, web calling, SMS call-back and voice mail.
