Every Piece Of Information on Cell Phone Rental

Aug 17, 2007
What is a cell phone rental? Well, basically a cell phone rental means that when you travel to another country and you are out of range for your current service, you are transferred over to another service provided and you in essence 'rent' their service. Of course this means that you might have to pay a higher call rate depending on who you are with. This article will endeavor to discuss everything there is to know about cell phone rental as well as giving you some great information on all the cell phone plans going around at the moment.

First of all if you are planning on going overseas sometime soon and you are going to need the use of your cell phone then that means you are going to have to be transferred to a cell phone rental service. You need to check what service you are going to be transferred to and you can do this by ringing up your service provider and asking.

Basically the first thing you need to know about service providers is that they are all aligned with other providers in different countries so when you go overseas you will be transferred straight to the provider that your current company has ties to. This means that you will still be paying what we call roaming costs and they can add up to a fair amount, depending on how many calls you make.

What about if my service provider exists in the country I am traveling too? This is great news if it's the case! This means that you can make calls to home and only get charged the normal call rates as though you were back in your own country. So what about calls to the country I'm in? Unfortunately it doesn't mean that the calls you make while you are in the country are on the same cheap rates. In fact they are exactly the same normal roaming call costs.

What can I do? Probably the best thing to do would be to buy a new sim card from the country you are traveling to. This will mean that the calls you make in the country are going to be the same cost as a local call on a cell phone. Take your other sim card with you as well so that when you need to make a call to home, you can just insert your sim card from home and make a call.

Inevitably if you do this you are going to save a lot of money, especially if you think you are going to make a lot of calls while you are abroad.
