Don't buy this product October 29, 2016
Reviewer: Michael Dorrian from Coonabarabran, NSW Australia  
I purchased this before leaving Australia for the convenience but it was a waste of money. I couldn't load any credit onto the cards as they are not Lebara Network Numbers. This was confirmed in London and I had to get new cards. My emails were never replied to, so when I return to Australia I will be seeking a refund.

Terrible product October 3, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Sydney , NSW Australia  
The sim card I ordered was delivered within a few days, however it did not work at all. I tried using the sim card in two different unlocked phones yet neither registered the card. I am very disappointed with my order as I ended up having to buy a new sim card after arriving in the UK. This means I could have avoided wasting my money and bought a proper sim card to begin with. Overall, it was not a good purchase.

Perfect for my holiday September 20, 2015
Reviewer: Pamela Parfitt from Brisbane, QLD Australia  
Highly recommend getting this sim before heading away on your trip. Family had my number before I left, I knew the sim worked in my phone, and I could use it as soon as I landed.
