you'd like a reconditioned 900 MHz GSM phone (Nokia 5110) and
Mobal SIM, simply click the link below to order one.
These phones don't work in the US,
but do work in most other countries. You can see a list of
countries that use 900 MHz GSM service
The 5110 is neither the newest nor
smallest phone Nokia has, and it is locked to only work with
Mobal SIMs. Out of fairness to Mobal (who obviously hope
you’ll use their SIM to generate some airtime revenue), I won’t
be unlocking them.
Because they are refurbished, the
phones have no guarantee other than a 'dead on arrival'
guarantee - if the phone doesn't work within seven days of
receipt, I'll replace it with one that does. All phones
were tested by Mobal before they sent them here, so there
shouldn't be any dead on arrival issues.
The kits comprise
Mobal SIM gives
you a UK based phone number that works in over 140 different
countries. There are two distinctive and positive features of
these SIMs. Firstly, the phone number is yours for life. You
don’t have to pay any sort of monthly fee, and it doesn’t
expire, even if you don’t use it for a year or more.
Secondly, rather than having to
pre-pay money onto the SIM, you are conveniently billed to a
credit card each month you use the SIM.
Airtime rates aren’t enormously
cheap, but neither are they enormously expensive. If you expect
to use a cell phone, internationally, for only a limited amount
of calling, the Mobal SIM might be a good solution because of
its great convenience. If you visit a few countries a lot, you
should use pre-paid SIMs for each specific country, but when
visiting other countries, you will find the Mobal SIM handy
The Mobal SIM works in any unlocked
GSM phone, so if you already have a GSM phone, you can use the
SIM in that, too. Here's a
link to order a SIM by itself ($2.50 for a randomly numbered
SIM, more for a 'vanity number' SIM).
Your phone kit will be shipped
priority mail to you as soon as payment is received.
Phones are not available to UK residents.
The phones are $20 each and shipping
is $2.50. Click
