Truphone is the one VOiP service that has always worked well for me on my iPhone. Now they have rolled out their new Truphone Local Anywhere service and, surprisingly, it relies on… a SIM card. That’s right, the new services is offering pre-paid SIM cards that let you make calls at super low prices.
They are advertising the service as “The one smart SIM that lets you be local, anywhere.”
The SIMs offer low rates in your country of residence ($.15/ minute in the US), and even include “competitive SMS and data rates). And when you are traveling-
–you pay the low rates there… with the same SIM. (And it will work in 185 countries already.)
– you can add a new local number and…
–it won’t cost anything extra to receive calls from your home country.
The new service requires you to have a SIM-unlocked phone and while it is only currently available for two “home countries” (The US and the UK) it is coming to Australia, the Netherlands, South Africa and many more before 2010 is out.
We have one of the new Truphone Local Anywhere SIMs on the way and look forward to giving you a first-hand look at the new service.
