Adding local numbers to your SIM allows your friends, family and business colleagues to contact you for the price of a local call, no matter where you are in the world.
Let’s say you’re travelling to Paris on business but your brother lives in Sydney. By adding a local Sydney number to your SIM, your brother can call you for the price of a local call, even though you are in Paris!
By adding a local Paris number, your business colleagues there can also contact you for the price of a local call!
The possibilities are endless and you can add up to 50 numbers, for as long as you like, for locations all over the world.

Some countries require additional documentation to be supplied in order to set up a local number. This is a fraud prevention measure, and is beyond the control of Maxroam SIM.
