  • Which SIM cards should I use on Ships?

    To all the seafarers,

    Please help me. I need a SIM card that will let me call my home from everywhere and anywhere my vessel goes. Can someone suggest some good cards that are not out of coverage areas when someone calls me.

    Those traveling on the ships can you please reply me.

    Thankx

    There are 100's of SIM cards providing companies the world and we have used only some of these.
    If you are a seafarer from India you can use any one of the following:
    1. iVitta Sim Card
    2. Reliance World Sim
    3. One Sim Card
    4. Matrix
    5. Airtel World Calling Card

    Make sure that you are aware of all the billing rates before you go for any of these, otherwise you may end up with loads of unimaginable bills due to heavy international roaming charges.

        Your service provider should have international plan or even sim cards. You may also look into unlocking you phone.

            @ peter :

            It is always good to carry an additional phone which is not locked with a particular service provider. It can be used for local sim cards or for international sim cards.

              That is a good idea for 2nd phone. I believe most phones can be unlocked these days?
