    A work colleague has enlightened me to roaming SIM card stickers.
    You pop the sticker (has some contacts on it by looks) and it allows your Sim card to be used when overseas via their pricing/plan. (PAYG)
    I travel rather sporadically and as such haven't bothered getting local SIM cards for short stays relying on wifi or a roaming SMS if needed, but this looks like it could be interesting...

    What really has my attention, however, is whilst using their Sims and stickers they give you free WhatsApp use! I use WhatsApp religiously so mega handy.

    Anyone have any experience with this stuff? The company I was pointed at is knowroaming.com

    Hmmmm yeh well I guess I mean I don't tend to visit and stay. In/out, inconsistent. And it may seem it but Perth ain't OS! Not worth a local SIM
    I have a pretty decent discount code for this mob. Pm me if ya want.
    Won't reply til tomorrow tho

    No idea about those things.

    I got a Sakura data sim for a 3 month stint in Japan this time. PB pre organised the $10 a day roaming pack with Telstra. When I first arrived I turned my phone on with my Telstra sim in it and it automatically put me on the $10 a day roaming pack...I think that’s new!

    Yeah I suspect local Sims are the go for longer stays
    This looks good for short stays, pay as you go and multiple countries.
    I'll order one later on and report back.

    It is a similar sticker thing? Retaining your home number?
