Can’t travel without it
I’ve been using BNESIM for two years, I traveled to Australia, Bali, Italy, Singapore, India, and it never let me down. I have been able to use my phone and to make calls just like I do when I’m home. I no longer have to search for a local SIM every time I travel and the best part is if my BNESIM has any credit left after a trip it won't expire and I can use the same SIM for my next journey. I love it!
Lagging delivery, otherwise ok service
The delivery option I selected said "5-7 days worldwide". It was further explained, on WhatsApp, that this includes weekends, so it should arrive in one week tops. I ordered it Feb 1, it was shipped Feb 5 (already too late to arrive in one week), and it arrived almost 3 weeks after order date. Even if there was a customs problem, they shipped it after 5 days making it impossible to arrive in the said "5-7 days". I had the cards delivered to Asia via private channels and the cards (I ordered two) generally worked in Korea and China, although in Shanghai there were intermittent problems during which they didn't work at all (1 day out of 5 spent in Shanghai).
I think I just said goodbye to my money
I really don’t know what to think of this company but they have problems delivering. If they can’t find you on google they give it to the nearest pub. Not sure if it’s just a case of ‘take your money and run’. Beware
What a ripoff
We also bought this at rome airport tired and not functioning at our best. We paid $1300 for what we thought was a local sim for 6 weeks. Yes, I should have paid more attention but $1300 for 6 weeks is the price of a new phone. Buyer beware!
My best purchase
I discovered BNESIM thanks to a review on product review.com.au. For few dollars of activation I got a way to receive unlimited calls from my family. I live abroad (Dubai) and the happiness of receive a call from my grandmother has no price! Thank you BNESIM!
My first virtual sim
Arriving to Rome, at the international airport i was approached by a seller. Usually i am quite diffident from "assault salesman" but the girl was cute :) and i needed a cheap way to call back home.
The offer was not cheap or at least not cheap as i then discovered on BNE SIM website, but complete: they gave me a local data sim card, inclusive of 5GB of traffic and a virtual sim on BNE SIM network.
BNE SIM is amazing: i got a lot of minutes to call any destination in the world and a local number (italian one) to receive calls. They installed for me an application on my iPhone and explained how easy it was to use it.
Voice quality: incredible. Nobody could believe that it was an international call.
At the hotel i discovered that i could request for only 3 euros (around 5$) an Australian number. From that moment i started receiving calls from free from my family and friends. And i am still using the sim, even after coming back home. It is amazing to have a second number on my phone.
Buy the virtual sim online, before leaving. It is much cheaper and immediate: it is a virtual sim, so digitally activated, no shipment needed. Then use your hotel wifi, no need to activate any expensive data sim.
