Full disclosure. I am not – repeat, not – being paid or compensated in any way, shape, or form for what I am about to tell you. Although, I wouldn’t mind if Skyroam did that.
Here’s why I love Skyroam. It’s simple.
I have spent hundreds of dollars, and probably just about as many hours, in various countries buying a SIM card, trying to get it to work (even when I spoke the language), being disappointed when it didn’t work properly, and being surprised by the roaming and other charges I didn’t expect. I was on the verge of just giving up when I discovered Skyroam.
Now, I am connected to the internet wherever I go, just like the service I have come to expect at home. That means I can use Google maps real time, and I can actually watch my progress as I walk or drive. I can connect via text or by phone to my family and friends. I don’t have to worry about data charges, because there aren’t any. I don’t have to get a SIM card for Skyroam because it doesn’t need them. You just turn it on wherever you are, connect your phone via WiFi, and that’s it. In other words, your phone does whatever you want it to do, when you want it to do it, just like at home.
So, how does it work? Skyroam has contracted with carriers in just about every country in the world to make everything seamless. You just turn it on and go. You can connect up to five devices at a time at no extra cost, very handy if you’re traveling with family or friends. There is no contract. You can buy the unit (I paid $100 USD) or you can rent one. You pay $10 USD per 24 hour period for unlimited everything. You can buy packages of passes to pay less per day. There are no other charges.
I am so happy with Skyroam that I have become an uncompensated ambassador.
