This is a common question we encounter. Will my phone work or do I need to buy a new one? While the options are endless when choosing a device for your Global SIM 360 unlimited international calling card, there are some general rules of thumb to ensure compatibility and performance.
Next, ask yourself how you plan on using your phone:
If your GS360 enabled phone is going to replace your daily phone, you may want to be consider adding a data plan for convenience. However, you'll notice that since our data plans are flat-rate roaming global plans, they're a bit higher priced than standard domestic data plans. If this is a concern, you may want to retain your standard domestic data plan and use your GS360 phone primarily for global calling.
If you're going to retain your domestic plan for data AND standard calling, and add the GS360 card to a separate phone - you do have another option besides carrying two phones! Check out dual-SIM phones, enabling you to toggle back and forth between your standard carrier and your GS360 service. Slick!
Lastly, many new phones are already "unlocked", which means they aren't programmatically tied to any specific network. If your GSM phone IS locked, don't fret! You can contact your standard provider to inquire about unlocking your device, or there are dozens of unlocking services online.
