The European Data Roaming SIM Card is 3G/GPRS enabled. This feature is provided for free and will allow you to use the data services of your unlocked device.
If you use a PDA, Smartphone or Pocket PC running on Windows Mobile (or an equivalent open operating system on Exchange Server), you can simply insert the GPRS European Data Roaming SIM Card into your device, and enter websfr (lower case) in the APN field of your connection settings. GPRS Data rates are as follows:
Within France: $5.00 per MB (billing increment 10 kb = $0.005)
Within Europe: $15.00 per MB (billing increment 10 kb = $0.015)
If you will be traveling outside of Europe be sure to consider using our Mobilo International SIM Card with GPRS which offers GPRS in most countries for just $20 per MB.
If you own a BlackBerry, our services are compatible. Use our GPRS European Data Roaming SIM Card with your unlocked device and keep receiving your emails while saving a bundle on all of your data and calling charges! Until now, when you traveled abroad, you had to activate an international data plan with your current carrier. Some providers even locked you up in a yearly subscription...but you still had to pay high roaming calling charges.
For Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) or Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) users, we propose a flexible option that allows you to activate this service for the duration of your trip. Then you will pay simply for your usage.
Don't have a BlackBerry? See the bottom of this page for all the BlackBerry models we carry.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you invoice the SIM Card service?
Whenever you use your SIM card, we bill your credit card once a month any airtime usage and data transport charges incurred from the previous month. Any additional usage charges will be billed on subsequent invoices.
Do I have to pay something when I donít travel?
No, there is absolutely no monthly or any other fee. Keep the SIM card until your next trip to Europe, and you only pay for your usage. Nothing else.
How do you invoice the Blackberry option?
The Blackberry option is charged on a daily basis and the total will appear on your monthly statement. This option can be activated and suspended without any limit while you maintain an active line.
