UK Lebara Mobile Sim Card - 1063
|The Lebara SIM Card for the United Kingdom is a pay as you go cellular solution designed to provide affordable cell phone communication for travelers going to the UK, whether they need to stay in touch locally or back home. As the service is pay as you go, there are no contracts to sign nor bills to pay. Typically, roaming rates to the UK from USA providers exceed $1 per minute for both incoming and out going calls and Canadians can expect to pay double that amount. The Lebara SIM Card offers rates that are a small fraction of what the major North American carriers charge to use their services in the UK. For example, calls back to the US and Canada are a low $0.06 per minute and all incoming calls are free. All you need is an unlocked GSM handset with 900/1800 MHz bands to take advantage of these spectacular rates.

What’s a SIM card?
A SIM card is a small chip that you insert in a GSM cell phone. SIM cards are the “brain” of the phone, providing important features such as the service and call logs.
Will the Lebara SIM card work with my phone?
The Lebara SIM card is compatible with all unlocked SIM cards that have the 900 and 1800 MHz bands. Most quad band phones fit this requirement. If your cell phone has the proper bands but is not unlocked, contact your carrier to see if they will provide you with the unlock code.
What if my current cell phone doesn’t work in the UK. What should I do?
If your cell phone does not currently work in the UK you can purchase an unlocked GSM cell phone. There are plenty available on the market for virtually all budgets.
Does the Lebara SIM Card for France work outside of the UK?
While the Lebara SIM card does work outside of the UK, additional roaming rates will apply. A better solution is to purchase a roaming SIM card, such as the National Geographic Travel SIM.
Is there voice mail?
Yes, there is voicemail. Calls to retrieve voice mails are $0.15 per minute.
Can I retain my US cell phone number?
Each and every SIM card has a unique phone number assigned to it. The Lebara SIM card has a UK phone number. While your US cell phone can be forwarded to your new Lebara number, we advise that you simply leave your new phone number on your voice mail.
