A prepaid SIM card for Israel is a practical option for existing world phones as a prepaid Israel cell phone is at a better rate than Israel cell phone rental. The SIM chip, combined with an unlocked GSM World cell phone, helps you keep the lines of communication open without being burdened by high international roaming surcharges applicable when you use your “home” SIM card abroad. You’ll likewise enjoy the benefit of SMS text messaging, voicemail, a local cell phone number in Israel, and FREE incoming calls.
