How it Works

The SIM is sent unactivated, and you can order it with or without a EUR10 credit voucher.

Once you receive the SIM you will need to go to the Lebara.de website before you depart and activate your SIM. Details are at support.mobipassport.com/germany. Once this SIM is activated this is all you can do before you arrive in Germany as the SIM will not register on a network until you get to Germany.

When you arrive you Germany you can add the credit voucher to your account by dialing *133* followed by the
16-digit voucher PIN and # E.g.: *133*1234567890123456#. If you did not purchase a voucher from us, you can go to any convenience store, supermarket, pharmacy etc. and purchase a credit voucher.

Finally you can subscribe to one of the Plans (E.g. Flexi Plan or Data Bundle) by SMSing the relevant code to 55255

Worked well October 15, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from St Kilda, Vic Australia  
SIM and voucher worked well with god coverage  in Germany.  I wonder though how someone would go who doesn't speak German as all the instructions to recharge and confirming the data and call plan are in German.

Recommended March 10, 2015
Reviewer: - from Maroochydore, Queensland Australia  
Great service. Fast delivery. Able to buy credit easily in Germany in supermarkets etc. I would recommend getting a SIM with €10 initial credit to enable browsing etc for setup on arrival. 3GB data package (plus call allowance) lasted me a month in Germany with frequent use. Being able to use the Internet freely was very convenient for planning transport and walking around using maps.

German Sim July 8, 2013
Reviewer: Chris Cordner from Beveridge, Victoria Australia  
Was great value for money and very easy to use once I worked out how. Allowed me to keep contact with family and work more effectively while I was in Germany and also Italy for a few days.  Will no doubt get another SIM when I next travel to Germany in October.
