GeoM2M SIMs can be used in all Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
Global M2M SIMs can be used in all Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Getting your M2M or Iot device connected and maintaining its connection is vitally important. Working all over the world, in 200 countries on over 1100 networks, Global M2M SIM cards keep your devices connected no matter where they are. Global M2M SIM cards are not tied to any single network and will roam seamlessly between multiple networks. This means that if one particular network has poor coverage at a location, your Global M2M SIM will switch to another network to keep your data flowing.
Global M2M SIM cards have two phone numbers; a primary number and a secondary number. You have the option to choose which number shows as the caller ID and the ability to receive SMS or calls to either number, no matter which is set as the caller ID. You might ask "whats the point for having two numbers?" Having two numbers on your M2M SIM can increase reliability as it gives you two "routes" to contact your SIM. Once you've activated your SIM, it will use the primary number as the caller ID, but if you'd like to switch it over to the secondary number at any time, just login to your account and select Visible Caller ID. Some UK networks may consider the SIMs primary number an international call as it is an Isle of Man number. Depending on your network and the package you are using, your network may charge you to send SMS or to call the primary number on your M2M SIM card. However, the secondary number is a mainland UK number and will be included in any contract minutes or text message allowance you have.
Setting up your M2M device could not be simpler. No proxy servers, usernames, passwords or SMS service centre numbers (SMSCs). Just set the Access Point Name (APN) for a data connection, make sure there is credit on the SIM and you’re ready to connect. Top Up online 24/7 or enable Auto Top Up and allow your SIM to top up automatically when the balance reaches a level of your choice.
We try to keep things simple with one flat rate across Europe and other zones. In the UK and Europe data costs £0.05 per MB and SMS £0.08 per SMS. For full details of EU and worldwide coverage and rates check out our rates page.
Each SIM comes as a “triple cut” SIM and includes standard (2ff), Micro SIM (3ff) and Nano SIM (4ff) sizes. Just press out the size of SIM you need and insert in to your device. NanoSIMs (4ff) are normally used in smartphones such as later versions of iPhone, Samsung, HTC and other leading brands. Although Global M2M SIMs are designed for M2M applications they can also be used for data use in phones, MiFi devices and modems.
Pay for what you use, not what you don’t! Most M2M SIM suppliers want you to pay a fixed monthly charge for an inclusive allowance for Data or SMS. The vast majority of M2M devices do not use anywhere near the quantities paid for in “bundles”. Global M2M SIMs help keep your costs down and do not tie you in to any regular monthly payments. Pay As You Go and only pay for what you use, when you use it. We are always rolling out new products and services and do plan some great global offers and bundles… watch this space!
