iPhone 3GS International Roaming, iPhone 3GS running iOS 6, iOS 6 beta release

Many people have never heard of Tru, which is actually a lot more common than many fans of the company might think. So we wanted to take a little time and explain a little bit about the company.

Tru (formerly Truphone) is a fantastic global SIM service provider with one mission in mind: to save you money on international calls, texts, and data (up to 90% savings according to their website at www.truphone.com).

So here’s the deal: if you use your current cell carrier … say, AT&T if you’re in the USA or Orange if you’re in the UK … and you go on an international trip. During that time, you accumulate email after email, visual voicemail after visual voicemail, phone call after phone call. When you get back, what does your bill look like?

If you’re like many customers, you’re picking up your phone and calling your carrier, because something just doesn’t seem right. How could a bill be that expensive?

Well, thanks to Tru, you no longer have to worry about this condition, which is often referred to as “bill shock.” Since it’s prepaid, there are no overage charges. If you so desire, you even get multiple phone numbers all on one SIM card. And the biggest advantage to Tru are their amazingly low rates!

Of course, our personal favorite part is being able to use any unlocked phone we want on their network, even an iPhone.

Which brings us to the point of this article. Apple iPhone and iPad users are notorious for using higher amounts of data, even while going internationally. So Tru especially makes sense for these individuals. Horrifyingly high phone bills are a thing of the past.

So the next time you’re planning an international trip, even if it’s only for a short time, you might want to pay a visit to the folks at www.truphone.com and have them hook you up with an international SIM.

Say good-bye to borders.
