Useful UK numbers that are also available overseas:

International roaming with a UK SIM card is not the cheapest alternative, but it can be convenient if say you cross into Switzerland or Germany for a weekend. This way you don't have to buy a new SIM card if you plan to just 2 days in a new country. If you have any questions about using this SIM or would like more information please call (800)872-7626 x110, or +1-703-222-7161 x110 from overseas.

With GPRS you pay for the amount of information you receive and send, at a cost of £4 ($6) per megabyte. The following guide shows what this roughly equates to:

One megabyte =

1200 WAP pages or 20 web pages or
100 emails without attachments or
10 emails with a one page attachment or
1 email with a PowerPoint presentation attachment

You will be charged for the size of email or web page you download or send as well as the additional data required to control the sending and receiving of information. GPRS is not recommended for web-based email systems. For billing purposes, a megabyte is 1,048,573 bytes.

* Customer service for your UK prepaid SIM card is available 24 hr./day by dialing 451 at any time from your UK cellular phone.

* You will need to snap out the thumbnail sized UK SIM card along the perforated edge of its holder and then insert the UK SIM card into your international cell phone with the gold contacts of the UK SIM card facing the metal contacts of your international cellular phone.

** When calling overseas from the United States to your UK cellular phone number callers will need to dial 011 followed by the country code 44 and then your UK cell phone number. To call abroad from your UK cell phone simply dial 00 followed by the country code and phone number.

** Your phone may or may not prompt you for a PIN code (there is no predefined PIN with the UK SIM card). The PUK is only required to unblock you phone if you enter in a PIN code incorrectly 3x. Follow your cell phone manual instructions to correctly use the PUK to unblock your phone along with PIN2.

From time to time, your prepaid UK SIM card may need to be recharged with airtime credit. The 2 easiest ways to add (or Top-up as the local say) airtime are:

1) Purchase of recharge cards (also called airtime vouchers), which are available at most convenience stores, tabac shops and petrol stations throughout UK. They may be purchased in denominations of £20 or £50 and you receive the equivalent in airtime.

To charge The UK (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland) SIM with a recharge card proceed as follows:

Open up the packaging of the recharge card.
Rub off the gray protective layer,
Dial 450
Follow the voice prompts to load your voucher code.

2) Register your credit card with Orange customer service by dialing 450


Note:Due to supply constraints beyond our control we ocassionally may need to substitute another carrier's SIM in place of Orange. If you need a specific carriers SIM that you do not see listed on our site, be sure to call us for availability.

If you will also be travelling to other countries besides the UK and are looking for global SIM cards that have world-wide coverage, you can choose between our Monaco Plus and United WorldWidePrepaid GSM SIM cards that work in over 80 countries.
