INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL JUST got easier with Dopplr and Maxroam announcing a travel SIM. This little piece of plastic (the grey lines show its size in the image) snaps off and slips right into you mobile phone. When roaming outside your normal mobile phone's billing area, the Dopplr SIM acts like a local SIM. This means you won't get stuck paying while using your phone on trips in other countries. It also means you can top up the SIM online and know exactly the amount of money you're spending while away. I've used Maxroam SIMs to good effect before. Because of their proven effectiveness, I will never face a month where my mobile phone bill exceeds EUR 1000. That kind of painful expense can take years of recovery. My hands-on experience and unreserved recommendation for the product deserves a proper five-star recommendation on LouderVoice.
