    Has anyone used the Geosim which gives you free incoming calls in European Countries.

    Does not look too bad on the data front. Just wondering if anyone had one or had anything to say about it.

    Data looks very very expensive.......:Eeek:

    France, Germany, Spain Portugal, Holland varies from £0.38 to £1.23 per MB depending which network you are on..... ouch..:Doh:

    So for 25mb that would be from £9.50 to £30.75.

    On Vodafone PAYG 25 mb costs £2.00......! and local sims are even cheaper in most countries.

    Just been looking at this site... http://www.lefrenchmobile.com/

    Looks quite reasonably priced and no expiry.

    The only problem I see is that you need a French address ...:Doh:

    If you want to receive calls for free, get an eKit SIM.

    Costs £20 with £5 credit. Costs people back home in the UK the same as calling a UK mobile (so if they have a moble, they can use their inclusive minutes) and is free to recieve calls anywhere in Europe.

    Vodafone PAYG @ £2 for 25MB does seem the cheapest data option at the moment.
