I’m willing to answer nearly any travel question – unless it’s about SIM cards and smartphones. I’m reasonably tech-savvy, but I’ve yet to unravel the mystery of having a fully functional smartphone no matter where in the world I go. My typical method is to use Wifi calling, which leaves me at the mercy of wireless networks. And no data service means no handy GPS to bail me out when I get lost.
But I have good news: HolidayPhone just might be my answer. The company offers prepaid SIM cards that will allow you to make calls and use the Web in 30 countries (see the list below). And you can buy one and have it mailed to your home before you leave. That is way better than getting to your destination and negotiating for a data plan in a language you don’t understand — but I probably speak Portuguese better than I speak Smartphone!
I’d love to put a HolidayPhone prepaid SIM card to the test. The problem is, I have no international travel plans at the moment.
That’s why I need someone like you to test a HolidayPhone prepaid SIM card.
All I ask is that you use the HolidayPhone SIM card and write a guest post for WanderingJustin.com about your experience with it within a few weeks of your return. If it’s an extended trip, it would be great to get your review while you’re on the road.
If you have an upcoming trip to one of the destinations below, contact me – email, a comment on this post, a tweet (be sure to include HolidayPhone’s handle, which is @holidayphone). Tell me where you’re going, when you leave and what you’ll do to have your chance at testing out a HolidayPhone prepaid SIM card.
I know some of you out there – many! – work better under a deadline. Let’s say I need your response by Dec. 15. And it takes about two days to get your HolidayPhone SIM card via UPS, so the timing of your trip is essential. Good luck!
And now, the countries:

I feel the exact same way! I’m pretty well-traveled and tech-savvy, but phones, minutes and data is still a conundrum every time, so if this works, it would be a godsend. I’m traveling to some of the mentioned countries later this month, so I’ll be writing you!
It definitely sounds like something that can save us all some time and angst, doesn’t it? Thanks for reading and for the comment!
