| How It Works|
| ||Unlike our traditional prepaid SIM cards where you buy airtime in advance, the Mobal International SIM Card is usage based. Your credit card, which you will use to activate the SIM card, will be billed for airtime usage on a monthly basis, according to the calls you've made and their corresponding rates. If you never use the SIM card, there is never a charge.|
While the Mobal International SIM Card is great for emergencies, it is certainly not as economical for voice calls as our local prepaid (and even our global roaming prepaid) SIM cards. However, once activated the SIM is always on and available for use, providing you with one more level of security and convenience on your next trip overseas.

When Using Data Capabilities: Your first MB of data downloads is already included, additional data charges will show up on the credit card you provided when you registered the SIM card.
*You will need to snap out the thumbnail sized Mobal International SIM Card along the perforated edge of its holder and then insert the SIM card into your cell phone with the gold contacts of the SIM card facing the metal contacts of your phone.
**When calling overseas from the US to your UK-based cell phone number, callers will need to dial "011" followed by the country code "44" and then your cell phone number. To call abroad from most countries simply dial "00" followed by the country code and phone number.
**Your phone may or may not prompt you for a PIN code (there is no predefined PIN with this SIM card). The PUK is only required to unblock your phone if you enter in a PIN code incorrectly 3 times in a row. Follow your cell phone manual instructions to correctly use the PUK to unblock your phone along with PIN2.
