Why buy a Mobal International SIM Card?

Our international SIM card has no connection fees, no monthly fees and no hidden charges. You pay for what you use and never get any surprises!

You get one SIM card which works seamlessly in over 190 countries
The Mobal World SIM Card will be the only Travel SIM you will ever need - it works in over 190 countries and will automatically change to the local network each time you enter a new country. The SIM works in any "unlocked" GSM cell phone including iPhones. Better still, it will never expire so you get the same international service for life for just $15!!

There are no monthly fees, no minimum usage, no contract - only pay for calls as and when you make them
With your Mobal World SIM Card, you only ever pay for what you use – there are NO monthly fees, NO minimum usage charges and there is absolutely NO commitment! Easily keep track of your usage through your online account.

You get an International SIM Card for life!
Your service never expires – it is yours for life! It will work wherever you are in the world!

You can make & receive calls and send & receive texts
With your World Talk & Text phone, you can keep in touch with home, make reservations at your next travel destination and stay in contact with travel companions. Friends, family and co-workers can reach you on your Mobal phone number wherever you are in the world. It could not be easier to keep in touch as you travel!

Bill Shock Safe – Guaranteed
To protect you from unexpected high charges, Cellular Data is permanently disabled on your World Talk & Text SIM. We guarantee that we will never bill you for data charges so you can never return home to bill shock!

If you have a WiFi-enabled device, you can still connect to WiFi to browse the internet, email, use social media, etc, etc.

Is my handset compatible with the World SIM?
The Mobal International SIM card will work in all "unlocked" GSM cell phones including iPhones. 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.

What does "unlocked" mean?
If your device is "unlocked", it means that it can work with a SIM card from any network. If your device is "locked", it is restricted to work only on your regular carrier's network. Your device must be "unlocked" to work with the Mobal World SIM.

How do you know if your phone is unlocked?
If you purchased your device as an "unlocked" or "SIM Free" device from a retailer such as Amazon, then your device is almost certainly already unlocked. This means that it will work with our SIM card. If you purchased your device directly from your carrier (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.), your device is probably locked and, therefore, it may not work with our SIM card.

If you're not sure whether or not your device is unlocked, there is an easy way to find out... If you have a friend or a family member with a SIM card from a different carrier (for example, if your phone is from T-Mobile and you have a friend with an AT&T SIM card), simply try their SIM in your phone. If you can successfully connect to a network and you don't get any error messages on the screen, then your device is unlocked. If you get an error message on the screen and/or you can't connect to a network, then your device is probably locked.

If you're still not sure whether or not your device is unlocked, simply contact the store where you purchased your device from.

My device is locked. What can I do?
If your device is locked, it may be possible to get it unlocked - simply ask your provider about this.

If your provider cannot/will not unlock your device for you; or if you decide it is too much hassle to get your device unlocked, simply purchase a SIM+Phone package from us.

We pre-install the SIM in our SIM+Phone Packages for you - so your phone is ready to use when you receive it! Simply click here for our SIM+Phone Package options.

Coverage

Our World Talk & Text phones and SIMs has perhaps the best coverage of any international phone service.

Not only in the number of countries it works in, but also the number of carriers it connects to in each country - in fact, you'll get better coverage than many of the locals get, as they will be stuck using just one carrier.

I have traveled extensively throughout the world for over 25 years and have flown over 3 million air miles.
I must say that the purchase of your Mobal International Cell Phone has been the biggest improvement in my travels, ever.
Also, Mobal is one of the few companies that I call where a live person answers the call and answers my questions every time! I have told all of my traveling friends about it.

My Mobal World Phone was a great peace of mind for our trip to Italy.
I was able to call my parents on their 60th anniversary as well as my father on Father's Day.
Additionally we were traveling with four other couples and the phones made it very easy for us to reconnect while in larger cities.
Thank you for your assistance.

I got my Mobal International Cell Phone for a business trip to Australia.
It's easy to use as there is no frustration as with trying to use a calling card from a hotel room, so the connection to "home" is always available. The peace of mind it provides is priceless.
Thank you for a great product

Profits Go To Charity

It all started with one man's desire to make calls while traveling...

Mobal was the brainchild of Chairman Tony Smith. As a lifelong international traveler, he was constantly frustrated when trying to keep in touch with family, friends & business contacts on his many trips overseas.

On the back of the success of the international cell phone service he has established a number of charities with a desire to change the world.

In February 2016, Tony set up Seibo, a registered Japanese non-profit organisation with a simple aim: to feed every hungry child in the world a hot meal in school!. School feeding carries many benefits - education, nutrition and health, gender equality, food security, poverty alleviation - in one single meal. The world would be changed if every hungry child in it were to receive a meal at school.

Mobal guarantees that the majority of profits go to its charities, so with your Mobal SIM, you don't just travel the world, you make it a better place!

I just want to say that I purchased my Mobal World Phone in the beginning of December and used it for the first time on a trip to Grenoble, France the week of December 11th. It worked flawlessly and I was very pleased. It certainly saved a lot of time searching out pay phones and having to pay for phone cards.
