    USA-Gold SIM Card For Use In The USA


    This SIM Card Includes:

    A local US phone number in the area of your choice
    3.3 hours of airtime to get you started
    Voicemail, SMS messaging, Caller ID, Call Waiting, and 3 Way-Calling
    No contract, credit check, or activation charges

    Service Life

    Initial starter credit on the USA-Gold SIM card is valid for about about 88 days from our shipment to you. Unused call time credit may roll over into the next 88 day period if you make arrangements for us to make a single reload within 88 days from your last reload. After you purchase 2 of our standard $100 reloads we will entend your expiration date by 1 year with each subsequent reload. Then as an ongoing Super Gold customer we will credit you with 13% more airtime for each $100 or $40 reload.

    As a special limited time offer, if you order our $199 promotional reload, your starter USA-Gold SIM will be valid for 1 year of service with 1000+ minutes of airtime. Your first $199 promotional reload will accelerate your SIM to Super Gold status. Any future standard reload credits will also be credited with bonus minutes and the exteneded 1 year expiration date. This is our most economical and convient way to establish 1 year of GSM service and 1000+ minutes of usage. This rate is less than annual postpaid contracts, no surprise monthly bills for service and no credit checks.

    Airtime Rates - Within The USA

    The airtime rate with the $100 reload (the most popular) is 25¢ a minute. This includes incoming calls and all outbound calls with the USA. Incoming SMS messages are free, and outbound SMS messages cost 10¢ each.

    Airtime Rates - International Calls

    International calls with the USA-Gold prepaid SIM card to destinations in Europe, Asia and Africa are approximately $1.50 per minute, in addition to your prepaid minutes. Calls to Canada/Mexico add 40¢ per minute and Jamaica/Island Countries add 80¢ per minute.

    For Example calls to the UK start at just 8¢ a minute for the International LD fees.

    If you will be calling or travelling overseas frequently, we also have another option that allows you to call almost any country for much less. Be sure to call us at 1-800-872-7626 extension 110 to find out about your options.

    Activation Instructions

    We will send you a fully activated SIM card(s) with an assigned mobile number. All you have to do is tell us your preferred city and we will do all the up front activation and account set up work for you.

    If you are using a customer supplied GSM phone and it asks you to enter a special code after you put the SIM in your phone, you must confirm that the phone is not locked. InTouch Smartcards provides a wide selection of unlocked phones that meet almost any need. Check out the latest selection of new  GSM phones that would work with this SIM.

    Adding Credit

    The USA Gold prepaid SIM may need to be reloaded once every 90 days to keep the account current unless the $199 reload is purchased, which is good for 1 year. 

    Reloads are available from Smartcards in the following increments:
    $40 = 130 (30¢ a minute)

    $100 = 400 minutes (25¢ a minute)

    $199 = 1000 minutes (19¢ a minute)

    To Reload your SIM card after you arrive in the USA please call 1-800-USA-ROAM x110 or from overseas call 1-703-222-7161 x110. Reloads are typically purchased in $100 increments.
