Mobile Roaming Services
RoamFone Rental Program
Outbound travelers traveling in foreign country face common difficulties in making mobile telephone calls with their personal mobile handset described as follows:
1. The mobile handset cannot register with the mobile network operators (MNOs) in the country of travel; this is often due to the fact that his/her mobile handset does not work with the GSM frequencies used by the MNOs of the country of visit or it could be because his/her home country MNO, to whose service his/her mobile handset subscribes, does not have mobile roaming partner in the country of travel.
2. The home country MNO requires a deposit of a certain credit amount that must be arranged with the mobile operator by the traveler well in advance of the intended/planned travel abroad. Otherwise, he/she cannot have mobile roaming service to make telephone calls when roaming outside the home country.
3. The rates charged by the home country MNO on calls made while roaming are very expensive.
All the above-stated problems are eliminated when one uses the service of the RoamFone Rental Program.
RoamFone Rental Service is offered through travel agencies and tour operators to their customers and clients at the time when the customers book air tickets or sign up for travel abroad.
Renting a RoamFone is as simply as renting a car. As renter, you pay a weekly rental rate of US$12 – US$15 or a daily rate of US$3. You purchase a certain minimum credit amount to begin with for use to pay for the cost of usage. Additional credit amount may be purchased on-line or in the form of Credit Top Up Scratch Card. It is a prepaid service that you can use for making and receiving calls to/from any telephone number at low call rates (costs) that represent great savings (55%-85%) compared to the rates charged by the home country mobile operator on mobile roaming calls.
