European SIM cards good for roaming

Jump to last reply

I am looking for a good european sim card (prepaid, pay as you go, or low annual plan), that offers good reliable service as well as reasonable roaming rates and general fees. I will be travelling to about 10 countries in Europe this summer and I do have an unlocked gsm world phone.

Buying a sim in each country will probably not solve my problem because I seldom make local phone calls while travelling and those local sims come with high roaming rates (I believe). So I'd prefer a single sim card good for all countries. I prefer a UK or French number so my family, friends, and clients can call me from Canada with low long-distance rates applicable to mobiles in those countries. I in turn will be calling Canada and other countries in Europe.

Some cards come with free incoming calls and sms so I'd definitely prefer that.
Is there anything out there charging 25 to 50 cents p/m for outgoing calls, no connection fees and/or other hidden fees? And I think I would stay away from those "dial and wait to be called back" cards from Estonia or Romania.

If anybody has had positive experiences with cell phone roaming solutions in Europe, please share! I've been researching this subject all over the net and I think I am more confused than when I started!

Thanks!
