 Your O2 International SIM Card for the United Kingdom will arrive fully activated and ready to use.  You will receive a welcome kit, with your phone number, that will provide detailed instructions about how to use your new SIM card.
  • Follow the included instructions to activate your SIM card
  • Put the O2 International SIM Card for the United Kingdom into the cell phone*
  • Be sure that the battery is charged and turn on your phone
  • Enter the PIN (if prompted) which is located on the same sticker as your phone

Simply specify during the checkout process if you will need GPRS or BlackBerry Data activated for your next trip.  You will be contacted after you place your order to find out exactly when you need data services to be active.

*Your SIM card comes attached to the back page of your information booklet.  You will need to remove it from the booklet then insert the O2 International SIM Card for the United Kingdom into your international cell phone with the gold contacts of the SIM card facing the metal contacts of your international cellular phone.

**When calling overseas from the United States to your O2 International SIM Card cellular phone number, callers will need to dial "011" followed by the country code "44" and then your O2 International SIM Card phone number, omitting the first "0' (zero).  To call abroad from your cell phone simply dial "00" followed by the country code and phone number.

Please Note:  The O2 International SIM Card for the United Kingdom gives you a UK-based phone number.  If you would like to make it easier for callers from the US to reach you while traveling overseas, our SmartForward service gives you a US number that callers all over the world can dial to reach you more easily.  For more information click here.

  Service Life


Your O2 International SIM Card for the United Kingdom will be valid for four months from activation without any additional charges or usage requirements beyond the initial SIM card cost and a $29 activation fee.  As long as you use at least $20 of airtime every four months your SIM card will never expire.  It is possible to extend the service life of your SIM card even when you are not traveling, please call us for additional information. 
  Data Capabilities


3G/GPRS Data

The O2 International SIM Card for the United Kingdom is 3G/GPRS enabled.  This feature is provided for free and will allow you to use the data services of your unlocked device.

If you use a PDA, Smartphone or Pocket PC running on Windows Mobile (or an equivalent open operating system on Exchange Server), you can simply insert the Call in Europe International SIM Card into your device, and enter (lower case) in the APN field of your connection settings.  GPRS Data rates are as follows:

Within the UK:    $0.005 per KB (minimum of $0.05)

Outside the UK:  $0.015 per KB (minimum of $3 per APN per day)

BlackBerry Data

If you own a BlackBerry, our services are compatible.  Use our O2 International SIM Card for the United Kingdom with your unlocked device and keep receiving your emails while saving a bundle on all of your data and calling charges!  Until now, when you traveled abroad, you had to activate an international data plan with your current carrier.  Some providers even locked you up in a yearly subscription...but you still had to pay high roaming calling charges.

For Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) or Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) users, we propose a flexible option that allows you to activate this service for the duration of your trip.  Then you will pay simply for your usage.

Don't have a BlackBerry?  See the bottom of this page for all the BlackBerry models we carry.

How does it work?  Contact us to activate this option on your line.  Then replace your current carrier's SIM card with your O2 International SIM Card for the United Kingdom and continue sending and receiving your emails. This is that simple and no settings have to be changed.  Or, if you already have an existing line with us, simply contact us before your departure to activate this option.

The option is only $4.50 per day within the UK and only $4.50 per day within Europe.(10 day minimum applies)  Tell us if you are a BlackBerry Internet Service user or if you are a BlackBerry Enterprise Server user.  Then you just pay your usage as follows:

Within the UK:    unlimited emailing and data usage*

Within Europe:  unlimited emailing and data usage*

*A Fair Usage policy will apply whereby usage will be monitored and extra charges may be applied if it exceeds 75 MB usage per month.

Add and remove this option to your line without limit to suit your travel needs.  Allow up to 72 hours to activate or deactivate this option.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, there is absolutely no monthly or any other fee. Keep the SIM card until your next trip to Europe, and you only pay for your usage. Nothing else.

How do you invoice the Blackberry option?
The Blackberry option is charged on a daily basis and the total will appear on your monthly statement. This option can be activated and suspended without any limit while you maintain an active line.
