Is my handset compatible?

The Mobal International SIM card will work in all "unlocked" GSM cell phones. You just need to check that your GSM cell phone works on the correct frequencies for the countries you are visiting.

When you pick a country from the list, you will see the GSM frequencies needed for that country appear underneath.

If you are unsure whether your cell phone is unlocked or what frequencies it works on, we recommend you contact your cell phone provider first to check.

Customer Testimonial

We and another couple were in Budapest trying to find a hotel at night. When you read English, French, German and Spanish, you find Hungarian bears little resemblance! My wife handed the phone to her friend who stayed on the line with the hotel.

The desk clerk talked us through the darkened streets until we drove into a bright, wonderful courtyard where the hotel was located. Mobal was worth its weight in gold!

All charges are billed in US dollars per minute. The Mobal® rates shown above apply both to calls made to and from cell phones and landlines.


Warning!

Other International Phones DO NOT give the same crystal clear call quality that the Mobal® World Phone gives you! That's because the Mobal® Phone automatically uses whichever foreign network in the area has the strongest signal - so that you get the best call quality available to mankind, wherever you travel, GUARANTEED. Amazingly, you get better coverage than most of the locals get! (How unfair!)


 

How billing works

You order your Mobal® International SIM Card by credit card securely online or through our call center. Purchase and shipping costs (if any) are taken at the point when your order is confirmed.

You then use your Mobal® International SIM Card and the charges for the calls are taken from your credit card as and when we receive the call data from the networks. (These charges will be applied to the same credit card that you use to purchase your phone. You can change the card later using your online "my account" service).

When you finish using your Mobal® International SIM Card, and all your outstanding calls have been billed, you will have no other charges, until you need to use your Mobal® International SIM Card again on your next trip.

You'll be able to review your account and statements at anytime using your online Mobal® My Account login, which will be issued to you after you've purchased your new Mobal® International SIM Card.

Top reasons Americans choose Mobal as their
international cell service carrier

Having A Travel Phone That Works When They Need It Is Their #1 Priority

We value your call quality as our top priority. After all, if your phone has problems when you need it most, what's the point in having one at all?

Many other services focus on getting the cheapest rates available, but this always compromises the quality of the service as to get lower rates, the technology behind everything always has to be botched or over-complicated.

At Mobal® we always look to get you the best deal, but never when it compromises your ability to place calls, leaving you stranded.

They Want A Service That Is Easy To Use

Second to having the best quality service, you want to be able to use your phone easily too. New gadgets can be complicated at the best of times, especially when you have to overcome the complexities of overseas dialing codes and unfamiliar telephone number formats.

At Mobal® we've chosen what we believe is the easiest system, which works in the same format wherever in the world you are — you never need to fiddle or set up your phone differently if you visit different countries — your Mobal® World Phone works seamlessly as you cross borders.

They Want Peace Of Mind They're Dealing With An Established Company

With Mobal® it doesn't matter if you travel every month or every few years. Because you pay only for the calls you make, and NO extra fees or minimum usage requirements, the cost of ownership is the same regardless of your travel plans - ZERO - when you're not using the phone it doesn't cost you a penny.

That means if you bought the Mobal® World Phone for emergencies only, and never needed to make a call, it wouldn't cost you anything but be there ready for when you do need.

They Travel For Business, Leisure or Both

The Mobal® World Phone is perfectly suited to both types of travel because our number 1 focus is on the quality of calls. So assuming you value actually being able to place your calls when you need to, then the Mobal® World Phone's perfect for you.

Plus, you get free itemized billing, which I guess is an extra bonus for business travelers!

So, if you can identify with those characteristics, you can be sure that the Mobal® World Phone is the right service for you! Plus, you get a Money back guarantee, just in case you were wrong!

Nano SIM - A Nano SIM is the smallest type of SIM and is suitable for use with Samsung Galaxy S6, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPad mini. Size: 0.5" long by 0.3" wide.

Can I cancel and return my Mobal International SIM Card service?

Yes. You are free to cancel your International SIM Card service anytime. If you decide to cancel and return within our Money-Back Guarantee period, you’ll also be refunded your purchase price.

What payment options are there?

Payment of your Mobal service, and future billing for any usage is all done by credit card. You can use any of the following types of credit card:

  • VISA accepted
  • Mastercard accepted
  • American Express accepted

Can I test my International SIM Card before I leave?

Yes, we have set the SIM card up so that it will also work in the US to allow you to check everything is working before you leave.

Is this website secure to order from?

Yes. This website is both SSL secure and is independently checked daily by McAfee’s Hacker Safe service.

Charges and Billing

Are there any extra or hidden charges?

No. The charges quoted on this website are the exact rates you will see on your invoice.

Are there any activation, deactivation or set up fees?

No. The only charges you’ll pay with Mobal are your purchase costs, and then any usage at the rate quoted on this page.

Why don't you have FREE incoming calls?

You may notice that most international cell providers offer customers FREE incoming calls in a number of countries. What they don't explain is that they charge the person dialing you a premium to cover the costs of giving you the FREE incoming call. Your international number is usually a premium number so the caller is charged a higher rate to call this premium number.

At Mobal® we believe in giving you the best possible value from your international cell service and that includes friends and family calling you as we realise it's important for them to be able to reach you at an affordable rate.

That's why your Mobal® International SIM Card comes with a US number so that your friends and family can call you on. It doesn't affect how your phone works, it just gives friends and family an affordable option for calling you while traveling.

How am I billed for my usage?

You will be billed for the cost of the SIM and shipping (if any) immediately when you order. When you're using your Mobal® International SIM Card, your charges for the calls are taken from your credit card as and when we receive the call data from the networks. (These charges will be applied to the same credit card that you use to purchase your SIM Card. You can change the card later using your online "my account" service).

Charges from Mobal will always appear on your card with the reference; "Mobal 212 785 5800". This is our company name and the main customer service phone number so you can contact us via phone for any general queries you may have.

How do I see my bills?

Once you’ve purchased, you’ll be sent login details for your online account. This means you can check your account 24/7 from anywhere in the world.

What currency am I billed in?

You will be billed in USD.

Using my International SIM Card

What do I do when my International SIM Card arrives?

  • Power off your device
  • Replace your old SIM with your Mobal International SIM Card
  • Turn your phone on, and wait to see a network connection

To access data with Mobal International SIM Card there are 2 important things you'll need to do:

1.) Turn ON Data Roaming, and
2.) Change the Access Point Name (APN) to 'openroamer.com'

Troubleshooting

What are your support hours?

We know that you could be anywhere in the world, in any time zone. And we also know that when you're traveling, you need access to information ASAP.
Our main office hours are 9am - 5pm EST Monday to Thursday and 9am to 4pm on Fridays

If you are struggling this is what we recommend:

1.) Read through our FAQs and you may not even need to contact us

2.) Call us

3.) Email us at

We aim to get back to you as quickly as we can.

My device is telling me that the 'SIM is not accepted'?

To use Mobal you need to have a GSM unlocked device. You can purchase unlocked devices i.e. that you can use with any carrier. Or, you can contact your carrier to unlock it.

I can't get reception and my device is saying 'no network'?

This means your device is not connecting to the network. There are a few things we recommend you try:

1. Check that the country you are in is one of our supported countries.

2. Make sure you have an unlocked GSM (2G/3G device).

3. Turn your phone off, wait a couple of minutes and turn it back on (Sounds silly - but it works sometimes).

4. Make sure your phone is set to automatically search for a network.

Customer Testimonial

We use the Mobal service so that our family members can have a cell phone that works when they’re overseas. Our daughter has taken it to New Zealand and Saint Martin; our son to South Africa; my wife to Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

In three years, we have had no issues whatsoever, and highly recommend it. I’m fortunate to have worldwide service with my company-supplied smartphone, but Mobal’s phone is a real asset to the rest of our gang. Mark Kuhn

Cellular Data

Unlike calls, which are billed by their duration, cellular data is charged by the amount of data that is transferred over the cellular network, both to and from your phone/device. This data is charged to you in units of 1 kiloByte (kB). There are 1,024 kB in a MegaByte (MB).

As a very rough guide, the following table should give you some idea of the amount of data that may be transferred in the process of performing certain data-consuming activities. These are estimates only; actual amounts of data used may vary significantly.

Sending or receiving a text-only email

10 kB

Sending or receiving an email with an attachment (photo/Word/Excel/PowerPoint, etc.)

500 kB

Browsing a typical page on the Internet

400 kB

Streaming 1 minute of music

1 MB

Streaming 1 minute of video

2 MB

Downloading or uploading a social media post with a photo (to Facebook, etc)

350 kB

Making or receiving a 1-minute Voice over IP (VoIP) call (on Skype, for example)

500 kB

Please note:

All cellular data usage is chargeable. This includes, but is strictly not limited to, Web browsing, sending and receiving email, updating or viewing social media (such as Facebook/Twitter), watching videos (YouTube, etc.), downloading or listening to music, using VoIP calling services, downloading and using apps, and so on.

VoIP/Streaming/Tethering

Using VoIP services (such as Skype and Google Voice), any form of “streaming” (audio or video) or “tethering” your device to a PC and so on is likely to incur very significant cellular data charges.

Applications (Apps)

Note that apps that are advertised as “free” are only free to purchase; they will still incur cellular data charges when they are downloaded. Note also that many apps may automatically use data in the background without your knowledge.

Background Data

Some devices may automatically transmit and receive data without any user action or knowledge. This may result in significant unexpected cellular data charges. Applications such as push email, news and weather updates, location services and many downloadable apps (even free ones) may do this. This list is not at all exhaustive; therefore, to avoid unexpected bills, we recommend that you take great care to disable automatic applications on your device.

If you wish to avoid such charges, it is your responsibility to ensure that your device is correctly configured. We cannot be held responsible for cellular data charges generated by your failure to control your device’s actions.

To avoid the chance of significant data costs we advise that you use a WiFi connection whenever one is available.
