09 has been down for over a week. Hopefully, it's just temporary and not for good. Itt was mentioned in the "yackie upgrades" thread. Since yackie, which piggy backs off 09 is also down.

Probably now Travelsim and 09 become more interesting...especially if it's possible to find cheap ways to be called on Estonian and Icelandic numbers :confused:

as one of the few eu countries, incoming calls in belgium are 0.19 euro. This is strange as the rest of europe remains unchanged. My problem I use UM in Belgium a lot so i will have to find a replacement.

good question, I have looked briefly yesterday at the options.

The cloud9 operators don't seem to be an alternative as they have stange terms. Looked at goglobalsim at don't like these terms:

The GoGlobal SIM card rates and tariffs assume fair usage of the Services by the customer. This includes, but is not limited to maintaining a ratio of outbound tariff enabled calls to inbound calls of more than 30% on the customers account.

Looked at geosim, but don't like the yealy cost and yes it can be found in the faq but they do hide it a bit.

Maxroam I have but can't call the number direct, yackie, what more do I have to say. I might look at easyroam.

Just need to check what numbers they can issue as the 7624 numbers were in problem in the past calling the with betamax/voicetrading.

travelsim.com ? looked at their website, what I don't like is that you have to pay 45 euro for a sim card, 45 euro for a card seems like a rip off to me. Most other prepaid card don't ask that much or just a fraction.

I asume I receive an estonian numer +372 ? I prefer a +44 uk number, just looks better when giving away the number.

I don't know if I can call +372 using betamax/voicetrading Iceland mobile is a problem and will not connect on voicetrading and I expect the same problem on a +372 number

just looked at gt-sim, but this is in their terms:

Quote:

How long will the card and the balance on the account remain valid (only for Prepaid customers)?
If there are no calling activities within a period of 3 months, a rental charge of Euro 9,95 for the number will be automatically deducted from teh account. To avoid these charges simply top up your account by Euro 25.00 and the life time of your number will be extended for another 3 month at a time. If you would add another Euro 100.00 your life time of your number would be extended for another 12 month
.

Kind of unclear, is making one or 3 calls in these 3 month's enough to keep the phone active that is what it said but it also reads that to avaid these charges you have to topup 25 euro per 3 month or 100 euro per year. This almost reads like it will cost you 100 euro per year no matter if you make calls or not.

Looked at www.easyroam.co.uk now and think I will order a card from them. 29 euro including 15 euro credit, so just 14 euro for the sim. This is a lot less than what travelsim is asking.

I've looked up on travelsim.com and yes, they ask 45€ - I agree, that's too much!
But here it seems to cost 29.90€ with 10€ airtime included...

On the other hand, +44 numbers are cheaper to call, and that's still one point in favour of UM+ :confused:

And we charge $43 for the sim card and you get $20 call credit - Good for our USA/Canada customers

I've never experienced or heard of any connection problems specific to these numbers. A few months ago there very occasional odd connections from Betamax/Finarea brands happening on all +447 mobiles, but I haven't heard of any recently
