Add local numbers from thousands of cities to your GeoSIM.

18th February 2013

Give your contacts a local phone number and receive the calls on your GeoSIM, land line, VoIP or PBX. Typically, this means your contacts can call you free* of charge from their mobiles "contract" or bundled minutes!

Geodesa has launched a new service providing DID (DDIs) phone numbers from around the world that can be linked to GeoSIM global SIM cards.

www.didhq.com provides phone numbers from more than 2400 cities in over 60 countries that can be mapped to any land line, mobile phone, VoIP, SIP, PBX or GeoSIM.

Uniquely, a DID HQ number is mapped directly to a GeoSIM. This means there are no forwarding** charges from DID HQ and the call arrives directly at the SIM card. Additionally the DID can be set as the out going caller ID (CLI) on the GeoSIM. By giving your friends, family and colleagues a local number means they can contact you at the cost of a local phone call, no matter where you are in the world.

DID HQ numbers can be redirected at any time free of charge giving you the ability to direct calls no matter where you are in the world.

The DID HQ numbers can also be used if you have a virtual office or want to give the impression your business has a presence in another town, city or country.

Homeworker who do not want to give out their home phone number or mobile for privacy reasons can also use DID HQ numbers for use on stationary, web sites and business cards.

Visit www.didhq.com for full details and to order your DID.

* Caller should confirm with their network of inclusive call allowance.

** Calls received on GeoSIM when DID number is called will incur a $0.25 per minute charge on GeoSIM call credit balance.

 

Travel safely and "Know Before You Go"

11th June 2013

Be prepared before you travel.

Here at GeoSIM we know the importance of being prepared when you travel. Good preparation means that your journey, holiday or business trip can be less stressful and go smoothly.

With this in mind, GeoSIM is working with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) to help British nationals stay safe abroad. The FCO website (www.fco.gov.uk/travel) offers straightforward travel advice, top tips and up to date country information to help you plan your holiday.

Although intended for UK nationals, the FCO advice is often very relevant and applicable for any traveler. The KBYG campaign covers important travel considerations such as insurance, health advise, emergency issues and personal safety.

Whatever your reason for travelling abroad, you’re sure to want a trouble free trip. Many of the things that often go wrong for travellers can be prevented or made less stressful by taking a few simple precautions.

Tips include:


  • Make sure you have valid travel insurance, even if you’re only planning a short trip.
  • Check what vaccinations you need by visiting www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk, your travel health clinic or GP at least 6 weeks before you travel
  • Read up on your destination, local laws and customs. Check the FCO travel advice pages or sign up for email alerts for the latest information
    Tell family and friends where you are going and leave them your contact details, insurance policy details and your itinerary and/or store them online using a secure date storage
  • Make sure you have enough money to cover emergencies.
  • If you are travelling within the European Economic Area, get a European Health Insurance Card for free or reduced emergency care - you still need full travel insurance though! Remember you can call 112 for emergency services in any EU country.
  • Check your passport and requirements for the country you are visiting.


It’s also worth reading up on what the local British Consulate can do to help if you run into problems abroad – and what they can’t do. You can also find handy checklists to use before and during your trip.

For more information, visit the FCO website: www.gov.uk/knowbeforeyougo or call the 24 hour FCO travel advice line on 0845 850 2829.

Unlocked USB Dongle and external antenna.

22nd Nov. 2011

Stay connected to email, Facebook and the web wherever you travel.

A USB Dongle is used to connect to the internet and email when you travel around the world, travel locally or simply want mobile data access at home.

The LM003 is unlocked. This means that you can use any SIM card from any network in it for your data connection. The 3G Quad band GSM Dongle can be used in pretty much any country so makes a great partner for a GeoSIM global SIM card. A unique feature is the ability to plug in an external antenna to boost signal strength by up to 25%. This is great if you travel in more remote locations, or sail close to the coast where mobile signals may be a bit weaker. This means that you can stay connected in areas where signal strength is marginal, or get a faster more stable connection.

Dongles can be connected to any PC or MAC with a spare USB slot and can also be used as external storage by inserting a MiniSD card (not supplied).

Full details on Dongles & Antennas are available here.

Abandoned International SIM Card Customers Offered Lifeline By GeoSIM Global SIM Card

 

Consumer Groups Say European Mobile Roaming Charges Still Too High

21st February 2007

BRUSSELS (MarketWatch) -- Consumer watchdog groups Tuesday alleged that mobile phone operators haven't truly reduced international roaming charges as promised, fail to give complete information to their national regulators and falsely claim that reducing roaming charges will hurt revenue and investment.

"Contrary to industry claims, there is no evidence of a reduction in roaming charges for consumers in recent times," the groups' statement reads, complaining that companies' promotional plans act as "smokescreens"and are "very complex, difficult to use, and have no appreciable effect on charges overall." Mobile phone operators also fail to give enough detailed information about the costs of roaming to regulators, which "makes it easier for operators to exaggerate the impact of price controls," the statement reads. more >>

20% Of Mobile Users Fearful Of Using Their Phone Abroad

11th February 2007

A recent online poll of business men and women, commisioned by Geodesa, the distributor of GeoSIM Global SIM card, showed that 19% of mobile phone users do not use their mobile abroad due to high charges.

The Geodesa Poll asked entrepreneurs and business folk a few key questions regarding the use of mobile phones abroad. Although not strictly scientific, the poll gave a snap shot of people's views on Mobile phone charges abroad..

What was the cost of your Mobile Phone bill the last time you used your mobile abroad?

The same as my UK mobile bill5%
About double my UK mobile bill29%
About Four times my UK mobile bill19%
Similar to a car load payment!0%
Similar to a mortgage payment!14%
I'm too embarrassed to admit!0%
I don't use my mobile abroad because it's too expensive19%
I didn't know you can avoid paying high Roaming Charges to reduce call costs14%

Geodesa Director, Ed Neal commented that the results were interesting in that it showed around 50% of people either restricted or stopped using their phone abroad due to high roaming charges. "Such restrictions can't be good for business" Ed said. "We need to communicate to do business, but if prohibitive call costs mean people don't talk, then there must be a knock on effect to business productivity and profitability. GeoSIM's savings are real and tangible, but the cost in not doing business efficiently and effectively is virtually immeasurable".

Beat The VAT MAN Before its Too Late!!

21st December 2009

Increase in the standard VAT rate.

The standard rate of VAT will increase from 15% back up to 17.5% on 1 January 2010.

Remember that your call credit does not expire (provided your SIM is kept active) so even if you will be using your SIM later in the year, it pays to add call credit before the VAT increase.

This increase will affect all EU customers, so if you are thinking of buying some call credit for your GeoSIM, or thinking about buying a SIM card, dont delay otherwise the VAT man will be getting his grubby hands on more of your hard earned cash - dont give him the satisfaction of taking more Tax off of you!
