There is no denying it, we are all more connected to the internet sharing revolution than ever before. Especially when we travel.
Staying connected while travelling can help us do many things. Think staying connected to loved ones back home, sharing experiences with them as they happen or even finding new and exciting things to do or places to eat. Being connected can enhance the experience of travel not just for you, but others back home too.
But the one big obstacle standing in your way with staying connected is those dreaded international roaming charges. I’m sure you’ve all heard stories from friends and family, or maybe it has happened to you. You’re away enjoying your much deserved holiday, using your phone just like you would at home. It’s not until you get home and receive your next bill that you realise you’ll need to remortgage your house to pay for it (well that might be a little ex-adjuration but you get my drift).
However, today we want to tell you that there’s no need to worry about hefty international roaming charges anymore because we’ve found you the perfect solution. Enter the KnowRoaming SIM Sticker.
What is it?
Basically it’s a sticker that you apply to your current SIM card which remains dormant when you’re at home but automatically activates itself when you arrive overseas. The SIM Sticker connects you to local wireless networks in over 200+ countries and provides you with voice, data and SMS services for up to 85% less than traditional international roaming charges.
You can choose pay as you go or they also have great unlimited data packages in over 70 countries for just $US7.99 a day.
Who is it for?
The SIM Sticker is perfect for savvy travellers who love to stay connected while travelling around the world but don’t want the nasty surprise of big bills from hefty international roaming charges when they return home.
If you love to stay connected with friends and family back home, research your travels as you go or just simply enjoy the freedom of being able to use your phone like you would at home, then you will love the SIM Sticker.
And one important thing to remember is that the SIM Sticker is compatible with unlocked, GSM iPhones, Android phones, Windows Mobile phones and tablets.
What are the benefits?
Other than cheaper international roaming chargers, there are three key benefits to the SIM Sticker we think you should know about.
Firstly, No more wasting valuable exploration time on arrival and forget about ever having to hunt down a local SIM card again.
You’re also totally in control of what you spend with the KnowRoaming companion app (available for iPhone and Android). The app lets you load prepaid credit, monitor your usage in real-time, check usage rates before you leave home and it also has an additional subscription service called ReachMe which allows you to receive calls to your home mobile number while you travel.
And finally any pre-paid balance you load will never expire. I don’t know about you but we are sick and tired of pre-paid data that expires after a certain period of time. It’s refreshing to find a company that lets you keep what is essentially your own money until it is all used.
