These prepaid SIM cards are suitable only for Israeli use. That being said, all of these cards are automatically blocked for roaming. There’s the option to open the SIM card for roaming, but this comes with some pretty high fees!
It’s important to have credit added to the account balance if you want to access roaming services. During roaming, you can only access SMS from other people and calls. However, you will not be able to access DATA, MMS or SMS sending services.
If you want to sign up for Orange International Roaming, you just have to call *111, or you can dial 1-800-672643 from any phone you want.
If you do that, you will have the ability to make outgoing calls on specific networks, receive calls and text messages. DATA services and sending SMS is not something you can do, unfortunately.
A thing to note here is that the roaming services work only when you have credit. Receiving messages won’t cost you anything, so this works even if you don’t have any account balance credit, and this is available solely for Orange.
As mentioned above, the fees are very high if you open the line for roaming. The outgoing call cost is roughly 29 NIS, and it will cost you 20 NIS for calls that you received. That’s why the prepaid SIM cards in Israel are blocked for roaming. If you don’t mind the costs, then we can open up this feature for you!
