    The SWISSCOM SIM has been discontinued but we offer many other SIM cards that offer much lower rates and work in many of the same countries. If you do not see the country that you are traveling to listed on one of our other Global SIM Cards please call us for additional suggestions.

    Our most popular SIMs are listed above but many former Swisscom customers have found  the Travel International SIM  which offers coverage in some countries that the others do not to be extremely useful. For more information on the Travel International SIM please Click Here



    Swisscom International SIM


    The Original Global International SIM Card For Global Roaming - The Swisscom Prepaid Worldwide Sim Card


    The only prepaid cellular service that works in over 130 different countries!

    Our most popular Prepaid Worldwide SIM card is the Swisscom (also sold as Mint) international roaming sim. As the largest carrier in Switzerland, Swisscom has been able to negiotiate more roaming agreements than any other carrier.

    The Swisscom SIM allows you to make outgoing calls in more than one hundred countries and receive incoming calls in over one hundred and twenty five countries - all from one phone and one number. With this package you can now easily make calls in most countries around the world without the hassle of a contract and without special access numbers to remember.

    You are not required to have AT&T, Verizon, Cingular, Voice Stream, T-Mobile, Sprint or any cellular service contract to use this World Phone SIM.

    Additional minutes will be applied to the same cellular phone number so you will always be able to have the same international cellular phone number.


    The Swisscom Prepaid Worldwide SIM Will Allow You To:


      Have a phone in hand, ready to use immediately upon arrival overseas
      Know the number in advance to distribute to colleagues and family to help maintain seamless and effective communications
      No monthly bills! Have an active, internationally neutral Swiss-based number
      To add units simply call or email us, and we can do an instant reload
      Save money over a conventional cellular phone


    This SIM is extremely popular because of its wide coverage and reasonable prices. In most countries calls with our prepaid option are 90¢ a minute incoming and $1.80 a minute out to anywhere in the world.

    The Swisscom SIM is the most inexpensive solution to making GSM phones from around the World work instantly. GSM phones can be used within minutes of inserting this universal SIM card into any unlocked GSM phone.

    This multi band SIM card is the best offer for overseas usage and can be used en-route in the USA, overseas or on your way back.

    Travel with the greatest access to international cellular service from airport to airport (around the world) with security in your hand.

    All calls are prepaid and low cost so anyone can use it for travel to anywhere in the world. You can also test it before you depart if you have a triband phone (The Swisscom SIM can be used on all major US GSM networks).

    The Swisscom/Mint SIM comes with 300 units (Equivalent to 30 incoming minutes, or about 15 minutes out on most networks in most countries).

    By purchasing one reload (or more) at $98.86 each now you will get 1000 units per reload for a total of 1300 units.


    Approximate Incoming Minutes Per Card: 130

    Approximate Outgoing Minutes Per Card: 65

    Recharge later w/1000 Units Call Credit for $98.86

    Approximate Incoming Minutes Per Card: 100

    Approximate Outgoing Minutes Per Card: 50


    Costs to make a phone call:


    Calls will be approximately $.90/$1.80 minute in/out for most countries (Including Turkey). The exceptions are listed below, but the way the costs work out this way is:


    One unit = 9.0¢

    Incoming = 10 units (90¢)

    Outgoing = 20 units ($1.80)


    Some carriers (outside of Europe, in Europe only the Ukraine has additional charges) reserve the right to charge additional fees on top of the above rates. Any additional fees will automatically deduct from your unit balance. For more information on the countries/carriers that charge more please call (800) 872-7626 x110.


    Placing a call using the Swisscom SIM:


    Placing calls is slightly different using the Swisscom System. For all outgoing calls you will dial *111* and the country code, number, press #, and then send.


    (You will need to put a # at the end every time you execute a command.)


    The phone call will go through in a couple of seconds. Instead of putting the phone to your ear immediately, you would wait about two seconds, and the phone will ring, alerting you to pick up the phone and speak to whomever you are calling. Answer the phone and you will hear your call going through.


    Just dial


    * 1 1 1 * then country code, city code, the phone number (country code is 1 for US), press # and finally the send key to dial any number.




    In These few seconds Swisscom calls you back instead of you waiting on the line to turn a call from the US, to a call that looks like it is coming from a different location.




    Checking your balance:


    You will hear your balance whenever you make a phone call, but there may be occasions where you would like to find out your balance without having to make a call. It is important for you to frequently check your balance, so that you will know as far in advance is possible when you need to add more time. Also, after re-loading your phone you will want to make sure that the credit was added.

    To do a free Balance Check on your SIM card:


    Dial * 1 4 7 *, then press # and then the Send or Yes key.

    {There must be a # at the end of every line entered}



    Voice-mail Instructions:


    This voice-mail is a call divert-style voice-mail meaning that calls will either go to your phone or voice-mail box. It will not ring a certain number of times and rollover to your voice-mail like on other phones.


    This is necessary to make sure that you will receive incoming calls. You may have already noticed that it can take several rings for your call to go through, and there are problems with many US international products that forward to voicemail even when the call could have gone through to the phone.


    On most phones you can program the *xxx* commands (*121* commands for your voice-mail) into your phone book. The *121*33# number incurs airtime and works just like any other outbound call on this system.


    Voice-mail Commands:


    Creating (*121*99#) used only once do not program this one into your phone. Note when you initally create the Voice-mail box you can hang up after the message "Combox Installation in Progress"

    shows up on your display. Wait a few minutes before dialing *121*33# to finish setting up your voice-mail box.

    Note: There is no voice-mail pin. If you dial *121*33# from your phone you will automatically be in your voice-mail box and you will be able to check your messages or record new greetings. You can protect your voice-mail from unauthorized use by enabling the four digit pin option on your phone.

    activating (*121*11#)

    deactivating (*121*00#)

    status (*121*22#) (to find out if call divert to v.m. is active)
