World’s first simless sim card ‘Cloud Sim’ available for download worldwide

Making international calls can be expensive and lead to unexpected bills, while businesspeople can often be required to carry more than one mobile phone around to stay connected on the go. These two issues are being tackled by a single new app, the ultra-inventive and sublimely convenient, Cloud SIM. An indispensable solution for those who travel or work internationally, Cloud SIM enables users to have up to four numbers linked to a single phone, including international digits.

Numbers available are real lines with a choice of UK, Canada, USA or Poland. For those who want to consolidate their comms, the app also allows users to port their existing numbers into Cloud SIM – with a reciprocal port out feature due to be launched shortly.

The format of Cloud SIM means it’s ideal for those making international calls, whether users frequently call another country or don’t want to be hit with expensive roaming costs while travelling abroad. The app also allows users to create several number profiles on a single phone, such as one number for work, one for eBay, one for personal etc - a feature that businesspeople will find useful as it means that are able to pick up work related calls on a personal device without having to give out their private number. Each number profile is customisable with its own personalised voicemail and users will clearly be able to see who is calling and on which number. Cloud SIM users can even set times for when each number is available, ensuring they’re not bothered out of office hours.

Saran Sathiyadurai, Director of Cloud SIM, said, “Sometimes a single phone number isn’t enough to meet your needs or give you the best deal all of the time, that’s where Cloud SIM comes on. Lots of people carry two phones, one for local calls and another for international, so we wanted to combine them altogether. We know that communicating and keeping in touch is important and wanted to make it as simple as possible, whether you’re closing a business deal while on the go or reaching out to a family member on the other side of the world. With Cloud SIM with you get all the local and international tariffs with extra numbers combined in one handset. There’s no need to have a second SIM either, with Cloud SIM it is simply downloaded.”

The additional numbers provided through Cloud SIM are real numbers that can be ported out to another network and users can add their existing or old number to their Cloud SIM account. Calls can be made through wireless and 3G or 4G data or via local access, which will use the account holder’s free minutes. Adding extra numbers or topping up a SIM can be done through an in-app purchase, via the Cloud SIM website or purchasing a voucher from a partnered store.

Through Cloud SIM, UK calls are the cheapest found on any UK network at just 1p per minute and calls to other countries start from just 0.5p per minute. There is one transparent cost for text messaging through the app, allowing users to message any country at just 3.9p each time.

The app can be downloaded for both Android and iOS devices, including tablets.
