Your place to get cheap sim cards and top ups for the German Mobile Networks

Question: Which sim-card should I buy?
Answer: Have a look to the description of the items. E.g. for data access we may recommend another sim-card for telephoning.

Question: Why is the German sim-card registered?
Answer: The German law says that every sim-card has to be registered to a person, normally with a German address. So the sims we offer are registered to any person in Germany, otherwise you cannot activate the sim-card. If you have a German address you can register the sim-card in your own name.

Question: Why is the price for a top up higher than the credit on it?
Answer: We normally buy the top up-codes from stores in Germany and pay the original price which is the same as the credit. As we have to pay PayPal/Moneybookers charges we add a handling fee to the top up-price. You can avoid this fee by buying a top up-code yourself when you are in Germany.

Question: I am not able to understand any German, what can I do?
Answer: Do not worry, we will enclose a short guide, written in English, with every sim-card . This guide will show you how you can use the sim. If you buy a Vodafone sim-card you will have a card which works in English.

Question: Within the EEC we have a reduced price for calls. Why do I need a German sim-Card?
Answer: In fact the EEC-rates for calls are reduced. Nevertheless you have to pay roaming fees for incoming calls and the prices for calls within Germany are much higher than with a German sim-card. Also data-roaming is much more expensive using a Non German sim-card than they are when using a German PAYT sim-card.

Question: I will need a German fixed network phone number. Can you help me?
Answer: No problem, please contact us via e-mail or telephone. In combination with a sim-card we can create a German fixed network phone number and can divert it to your English fixed network or mobile phone number.
