This listing is for students/athletes going on the NPIRE run experience trips to the USA. If going to Canada as part of the trip, order 8GB or 22GB plans.
To use these SIMs, your phone must be network UNLOCKED - ie not locked to any phone carrier that you originally purchased it from. See more info here if you are unsure.
We will activate the SIM on the data plan you choose (make sure you select the correct group you are travelling with), and we will send out the associated phone number and the SIM ahead of your travels.
Postage: We will post out the SIMs in a group Express Post shipment direct to school leader - you don't need to select any express option in checkout - this is free.
Whats included: All SIMs include unlimited calling and receiving calls to other US numbers, within the US. This includes the ability to receive calls from international numbers - obviously the international caller (ie Australian number) pays the nominated rate with their telco.
All SIMs include unlimited international SMS, ie these SIMs can SMS any international number, but must include international dial code at the start (ie +61 to msg Australia), and the person replying would be messaging an US number so pays the nominated rate with their telco.
Data: Select the data amount required (ie 1GB, 8GB or 22GB pack). This data can be used for apps such as iMessage, WhatsApp, Skype etc which allow you to make/receive international calls/messages.
SIM Size: All SIMs are TRIO SIMs, so you just pop the SIM out to the size required by your phone (ie the SIMs fit any phone).
International call pack: This includes 100+ minutes of calls to Australian landlines or mobiles. You must include the full international dial code (+61 for Australia and drop the first '0') when making a call back home.
Activation: We handle all the activation and adding credit process to make this easier - just pop the SIM in on arrival and turn the phone off/on and away you go. The SIMs will not connect outside of the US.
Worked well while overseas. Had no issues, instructions provided were clear and easy to follow. Good value for money.
