So usually I advise frequent travelers, if you plan to stay at an overseas destination for a few days and requires a lot of local communication, the best way would be to obtain a local SIM for your unlocked cell phone. But that means you may miss some important calls on your U.S. or Canada cell phone, unless you tell everyone your travel itinerary and give out the overseas phone number(s) so people could call you internationally.
So the best solution is to use OneSuite International Call Forwarding to save on international roaming and stay connected. Here’s how:
- Subscribe to OneSuite Forwarding and select your N. America local phone number with your preferred area code
- From the “Phone Setting” of your cell phone or smartphone that contains the N. America SIM card, set “Call Forwarding” to your OneSuite Forwarding number. Usually, your phone will display a confirmation message or symbol once call forwarding has been successfully set up. Now, remove the N. America SIM from your phone and switch to your overseas SIM. IMPORTANT note on using cell phone’s native call forwarding feature: If your phone is turned off, the forwarded call WILL NOT be charged for airtime. “Call Forwarding” feature may not be available to some prepaid SIM, varied by wireless carrier.
- Then go to your OneSuite account and set your overseas SIM number as OneSuite Forwarding destination.
- Now, when people call your U.S. or Canada cell phone number, the call will be forwarded to the prepaid SIM you purchase in Europe or Asia, or Any other overseas destinations.
There! So instead of being afraid to break the bank when you receive a call overseas, your forwarded calls will only be charged at the super low OneSuite International Forwarding rates!
