Excellent eSIM to USA / Canada

I went to USA and Canada recently. I remembered to buy my eSim while waiting to board the plane, very easy transaction!. They were quick to respond. Activated my eSIM on the same date I requested. As soon as I landed in LAX, I noticed I already have connection. Connection signal was excellent, both in US & Canada. Great that I had a local number which I haven’t seen in other providers. Happy to recommend their eSIM when going to US/ Canada Show details

Failed SIM registration, immediate resolution by Simcorner

Ordered a UK 02 sim, arrived by post in 4 days (to Perth, WA).
As directed in packaging I tried to register the SIM but the website would not accept the order number or either of the two options for the SIM serial number. Chatbot for Simcorner terminated the query immediately.
Emailing Simcorner directly from the Simcorner website contact option got a response within 10 minutes at 6:30pm on a Saturday night; Simcorner manually registered the SIM for me.
Excellent response by Simcorner Show details

Overseas Sim Cards

I cannot fault this company, albeit that they only correspond via email or online
I have purchased sim cards to use overseas on three occasions and they have not let me down - their customer service is excellent and would recommend them to anyone who craves good old fashioned service Show details

Beware - No Support when needed!

Purchased 4 SIM cards on 2 different orders and they mixed up the activation dates.
After emailing them three (3) times in the last 24 hours - absolutely NO response whatsoever. And this is only a couple of hours before we leave for Europe.

So unless you are happy to deal with a company with a non existing support (and keep in ind that there is no contact number to call), stay away and avoid the stress and just buy one on arrival at the destination Airport.

We have been using Sim Corner for a few years in the past, but this is our last time due to the lack of support. After all, you need a working support team when its urgent. Show details

Exceeded expectations

I got these (very reasonably priced) international SIM cards with low expectations and more than a bit of trepidation. I was pretty pleasantly surprised. They all worked flawlessly, and although the US one was a bit more involved activating (make sure and read the instructions ahead of time!) they were pretty easy to set up and get going. Would definitely recommend! Show details

Good results

I used Sim Corner in the US last year in August 2023 without any issues except that I must have got someone's old business phone number and kept getting their calls. No issues with the data allowance as I made sure I used the Hotels free Wi-Fi when staying there. I was away for a month and it worked perfectly after inserting the sim before landing in LA. Show details

It’s not what it seems

I bought 2 SIM cards from Sim corner US & UK, ever so convenient I thought, turned out to be a complete rip off, all data was used within an hour of turning it on. Recharged another 50 pounds which also disappeared in 24 hours.
Bought a uk sim for 2 pounds put 30 quid on it which lasted 3 months

European sim worked well after initial setup issue

I bought the 12gb European SIM. Initially I wasn’t receiving texts, but after 30 minutes of online chat with 3 in the UK (the provider), finally got it sorted. Needed to change Région on my phone to the UK. I used the sim mainly for data, and a couple of texts and phone calls. I used it in Prague, Austria, Germany, France, Belgium & England and it worked well. Mainly used when away from accommodation that had free wifi and didn’t come anywhere near to using all the data. I also found Sim Corner customer support very good, quick to respond. Will definitely buy from Sim Corner again. Show details

Europe SIM Card (12GB) Stopped Working (no data)

Wife and I are travelling Europe on our big holiday. About 7-10 days into our European holiday, SIM card stopped working. Days lost following up with Sim-Corner support only to be finally told the card was cut off due to "security" reasons. End of story, no further negotiations. I don't get this, we are tourists travelling around Europe and using data for maps, booking hotels, looking for events, etc. What "security" issue can we be?
So frustrating, then trying to juggle other mobiles with data. Used Australian mobile with roaming which ended up costing me an additional $450. Show details

Misleading!

I bought a sim card for US and Canada. Easy to install and use and worked fine - except they said I used 15GB data within 2 weeks which is inaccurate so i was without data for most of the 30 days - they slowed the speed to useless. We barely used data as we were busy most of the time and I would need to stream TV to use that much data in that time! When I contacted them they told me to contact ATT and would not help. Very unhappy. Next time I will just buy an esim from another company Show details

Very happy

Just got back from France and the UK and this sim was great. I used the 200GB data sim and it never let me down. I travelled all over France and there was very few places where i couldn't get a network, even in the mountains. The support email service was excellent as i had a few problems setting it up ( which was problems with my phone) the support crew sorted out my phone's problem and the sim worked fine. Will use it again for sure. Show details

Great value for money and it worked perfectly

Used Sim Corner for a 4 week trip to the US.

I installed the SIM on the plane, and everything worked exactly as promised. Having a US phone number was really handy when booking show tickets and restaurants. And WAY cheaper than roaming.

My only tip is to buy the plan with the most data, we really didn’t make many phone calls, but used heaps of data. Show details

Intermittent and unreliable with slow speeds

I used UK Travel SIM Card (12GB) throughout Singapore, UK & Europe but the download speed of data was often less than 1Mbps, occasionally 1-5 Mbps and rarely any more than 5Mbps. However, it was good value for money with more data than I needed. It was frequently so bad, that I often had to reset my network settings or turn mobile on/off which usually resolved the issue but quite frustrating & disappointing. I did communicate this to SIM Corner during my trip but there was nothing they could or would do to improve the situation. Ordering was easy & arrived promptly. Show details

A little clunky getting activated but worked well in Europe and Asia

This was our second purchase from Sim Corner. We had previously purchased 4 x sims for the USA that worked seamlessly. This time we purchased a total of 8 sims for a lengthy trip through Europe and Singapore. The process this time was a little more clunky - mainly as a result of the process being quite onerous to activate 8 sims! Aside from that the sims all worked as advertised. The great thing about this company is their stellar support though. We had issues with one sim in Singapore and the team were incredibly helpful in getting us up and running. They also assisted with fast activation of several sims that we needed to have working faster than we'd originally anticipated. Highly recommend. Show details

Don’t waste your time

I purchased a Sim corner sim, followed the instructions and it didn’t work and ruined what should have been a great day/night at a once in a lifetime attendance at the Rugby World Cup. I contacted their support and they suggested I create an account on their website and take screen shot of certain things and send them back to them. I got temporary access to wifi in a bar and wrote and reminded them that the sim was not working so how was I going to create an account and asked if that’s all the support they can provide. Show details

As I need 60 days data do I purchase 2 SIM cards and put 2 different activation dates?
Do the sims have to be activated before leaving Austrslia?
