Maintain Phone Coverage With Lycamobile Prepaid SIM Cards
Many domestic cell phone plans offer international service as well. Sometimes, when traveling, an effective way to maintain cell phone coverage is to use a prepaid plan from a company that specializes in providing international cell phone service. With a Lycamobile Prepaid SIM Card, you can get cell phone coverage where you need it.
Can you use a prepaid SIM card in your phone?
The majority of United States carriers use mobile phones that utilize SIM cards. In many cases, however, these phones are "locked" to the carrier. Your phone cannot be used with a SIM from another carrier until it is unlocked. Carriers do this to ensure that if you have a contract with them, you cannot simply change out the SIM and take your phone with you to another carrier until the phone has been paid off or your contract is completed. If you use a prepaid phone in the United States, then you most likely have an unlocked cell phone. If you have a contract with a carrier, you will need to check with your carrier to be sure your phone is unlocked. If it is not, you will need your carrier to unlock your phone to be able to use a Lycamobile Prepaid SIM Card.
What kinds of phones can be used on this network?
In addition to ensuring your phone is unlocked, you will also need to determine if it uses the correct frequency and band number. Each phone is specifically configured to a certain carrier to work optimally on their network. To determine if your phone is compatible with Lycamobile services, you can visit their website for more information on what phones for which carriers utilize which bands and frequencies. There are also a few universal phones that are optimized to work on any band and frequency. These phones are:

What kind of plans does Lycamobile offer?
With a prepaid SIM, you can choose from a wide range of plans to fit your needs. Which one you choose will depend on a number of factors such as where you are traveling to and how long you will be there. Another factor that may influence your decision is how much mobile data you will use. Most prepaid plans offer unlimited nationwide talk and text, and international talk & text in more than 65 different countries. Data offerings range from 500MB of 4G LTE data up to 6GB of 4G LTE data. There is also one that will provide service in up to 75 different countries and another that offers unlimited data at speeds up to 4G LTE.
How do you activate your Lycamobile prepaid SIM card?
When you receive your prepaid SIM, simply insert it into the SIM card slot in your phone. The SIM will come with some important information you need to activate your phone including the phone number and a PIN. You can go to the Lycamobile website and activate your phone there. Simply enter in the phone number and PIN, and the website will automatically activate your phone. Once the phone has been activated, it is ready for use.
