Just get a roammobility sim card

2.95 for text
3.95 for text and calling

per day
Check out the Roam Monthly plan. After 2 weeks, it works out to be lower that the $3.95 /day cost.

My son went to NYC this weekend and the email alert informed me that Roam Like Home is now 7$/105$max.

I'll be looking for a new solution next winter when we're south for 4 months. The initial 5$/50$ was worth it. The 6$/60$ was okay but now it's better to get a US phone/device/sim for US usage.

Will keep an eye on this thread to see what's best at the end of the year. Currently four of us each have the 10gb/60$ plan.

Yah Roam Like Home got crazy expensive. For the same price, I just went to T-Mobile and got the $50 10GB plan. So much better and as I have an iPhone, texting and calling is the same as it's iMessages so I don't care about the different phone number.

SIMs on eBay, cheap and ships very quickly. SIM can be activated in Canada - no need to step foot in the UK.
Roaming in: EU + Israel + USA + Australia + Singapore + Hong Kong + a bunch of Central/South America Countries
£10.00 1GB
£15.00 5GB
£20.00 12GB

Trying to pay for this but get the message below....how do I get around this? I have already activated my sim card and created an account...

We only accept cards that are registered to a UK address
