    Can I buy a USA SIM card in Australia?

    Yes you can! We recommend buying before you fly, so everything is sorted ahead of time. This means you can just pop your local SIM in when you land in the USA and be good to go! It’s the easy and stress-free option, and means you don’t need to waste precious holiday time trying to find a local SIM shop once you arrive.

    The best way to buy a USA SIM card in Australia is online. It will be shipped to your home address via regular mail - just make sure you choose the appropriate shipping method so it arrives in time! We do offer a few options via our website, so feel free to scope out what works best for you.

    Does the USA have reliable data speeds?

    We make sure we source our products from the biggest and best USA Telcos available to get you guys the best deals possible, but if you’re in a remote location, there might not be any nearby towers for reception.

    You’ll probably find that, like in Australia, data speeds are faster in popular metropolitan areas and slower when you are more remote.

    It’s also important to note that SIM cards are technical products - where you’re located, what phone you have and how busy the line is can all affect your data speed, just like they back home.

    The easiest, no fuss, no stress way to stay in touch in the US - use SimDirect

    We had a great experience from start to finish. The ordering process was simple and our SIM arrived in the mail with no issues. My wife was travelling with her daughter and two grand daughters - to visit the great grandmother who was seeing both the grandkids together for the first time. We prefer just having a SIM as we have a spare ‘travel phone’ my wife takes on her US trips and staying in touch is much simpler than dealing with international roaming charges and international data in particular. Our SIMsDirect SIM went straight into a phone, was activated when she was in LAX and was then usable as a normal phone (where she could call me at any time to stay at touch) and also doubled as a GPS tool with the data it came with being perfectly adequate for a two week trip (there was heaps to spare) It was incredibly useful to have a ‘normal’ phone to make and receive calls on to complement the various other means of staying in touch (Facetime, messaging and so on). It’s also useful to have the peace of mind of not dealing with international roaming charges as she just turned data off on her normal phone and only used it with wifi. We now do this every year - it’s on the ‘must have’ list alongside travel insurance.

    Fantastic service

    Nothing to fault about simsdirect! The customer service is outstanding and replied to all my emails immediately. I had zero troubles using the sim cards in the USA and saved a significant amount of money compared to if I had purchased my Sims overseas. Would definitely recommend this service to anyone :)

    It Worked!

    OK, getting it to work once I landed was a bit of a struggle as Ultra had no idea what I was on about - no the simple start up process didn't work, but they were extremely helpful. Don't expect signal strength to be great, it isn't practically anywhere I've been so far. Make sure you keep the card the SIM is in as the serial number is ABSOLUTELY necessary. You'll also need glasses as it's miniscule to read. After the 30 days it was pretty easy to keep the number as a normal mobile account. DO NOT expect to get the same service (calls, data) as you do in Aus, they are much more expensive! Unless you shop around.

    Perfect

    I am so glad I purchased my first ever SIM for my Canadian/USA travels. It alleviated a lot of stress enabling me to be fully connected worldwide in a time of great uncertainty during the outbreak of the coronavirus. It worked perfectly. I will purchase again when we can return to doing the things we love. Thank you :).
