Can I Get Free Vodafone Sim Card Without Credit?

Highlighted
2: Seeker

Hello

I am looking to buy vodafone sim card pay as you go because I am going to travel to Europe as Vodafone provide good features which suites my needs after doing lots of research online so is there any way to buy the sim card and ship to my Europe address.

I found a website ##~## who can help me to ship the sim to my Europe address but I am skeptical to it so I was looking to buy directly from Vodafone itself.

Is there any way to get it and ship to my Europe address?

Waiting for reply

Thanks

No @alamest 

 

Also Vodafone Uk don't levy a charge for the free sim card.

A person can order a free sim card and add credit at the same time or just the sim card.

Vodafone Uk will only send a payg sim card to a UK address.

Is there no-one you know in the Uk that can pick up a sim card and activate it by topping it up and then post it to you making sure roaming is activated.

Hi @alamest 

 

I am not sure if your purpose is to just get the third party link you have attached on the forum or if you have a genuine enquiry.  You also mention you are planning to visit Europe and have a Europe address, that seems contradictive.

 

Roaming is already active on PAYG SIM's, to activate the SIM the first call needs to be made in the UK on the local network.  Also, to top up abroad, you need a UK registered card.

 

Vodafone is a UK network and can't send SIM cards around the World.

Thanks for the reply back. 

 

I do know someone in UK but I don't know whether they will help me out.

 

I will try to ask them about it

 

The website is charging me for shipping so I am not getting it for free. 

 

Does Vodafone ship for free in UK address? 

 

Waiting for your reply

 

Thanks

If it requires first call to be made from UK then I have to load money into the sim card, how would I load the money from here?

 

So complicated..

Yes I order Vodafone Payg sim cards for myself via the website and are sent free to my UK address @alamest

The person you know can either...

 

1. Order the sim card from the official Vodafone Uk website and opt to upload credit at the same time.

2. Pick up a Vodafone Uk Payg Sim Card from a Vodafone Highstreet Store.

3. Pick up a Vodafone Payg from a Newsagent or Supermarket or discount store.

They then can put credit onto the sim card by buying a top up voucher.

The issue you may have is uploading credit while abroad or the person you know buys vouchers and sends the code to you.
