If you are a student, business person, or tourist who travels out of the United States, you might be in need of a global phone rental. These global cell phones enable you to keep in touch with friends, family, and business associates in over 200 countries around the globe. These phones are normally one of the latest models in cell phones from companies such as Motorola and Nokia. Because you get the opportunity to use the latest models of cell phones, you can receive services such as call waiting, call forwarding, three way calling, text messaging, voice mail, and caller ID. They also have a phone number that is based in the United Kingdom and given to you prior to departure on your trip, so that you can share it with your friends and family. A few global phone rental companies are able to tell you what your number immediately after you place your order.
There are many companies that you can use for your global phone rental. These companies include WorldCell, Cellhire, InTouch Global, TravelCell, Telestial, and more. Often, you can even find global cell phones on E-Bay. Each of these companies has a different method they like their customers to use when placing an order; however, often these methods simply involve filling out an online form.
For the person who either travels overseas more than twice a year or is staying overseas for an extended period, some global phone rental companies sell global cell phones. These phones are often available with a wide variety of payment and service options. Some companies enable you to pay as you go so that you do not waste any money on unused minutes and others enable you to buy packaged minutes for your convenience. In many cases, purchasing a global phone also entitles you to free rentals when you travel into a country where your phone does not have service. In these cases, the company will provide you with a free handset and all you have to worry about are the airtime and shipping charges.
