Connecting While Abroad
When considering how to keep in touch abroad, know that there are several options for your teen’s phone. To ease the process for you, we offer SIM cards and plans through our partner, 019 Mobile. Alternatively, you can contact your local provider to consider additional options. Below you will find information on the plans you can purchase through 019 Mobile. Always consult your local cell carrier regarding usage, compatibility, and eligibility. To use a SIM card abroad, your teen’s phone must be unlocked. Contact your provider for more information. A blank SIM card will be included in all welcome packets sent out prior to your program’s departure.

Activating Your SIM Card

This can be found under the bar code on your SIM card which was sent in your welcome packet. The number begins: 899721912000… and is followed by a unique ID for each device.
Note: Renting a SIM is an option that is only available if your device is unlocked. Contact your provider to verify whether this is an option for you. If your phone is locked, 019 Mobile does offer smartphone rental for $3/day.
