New Prepaid Wireless Service Offers Self-Activating SIM Cards, Makes Mobile Setup Instant, Easy and Private

VANCOUVER, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Ready SIMâ„¢ lets mobile users activate prepaid talk, text, and data plans right off the shelf, with no contracts and no dealer assistance required.

Roam Mobility Inc., a T-Mobile USA, Inc. mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), has achieved an industry first by launching a self-activating SIM card that delivers full service within minutes of purchase. Ready SIM cards are ready to go, with 3, 7, 14, or 30 days of unlimited nationwide talk and text, and data at very competitive rates.

"This is the first truly instant prepaid SIM-based product to hit the consumer market," says Emir Aboulhosn, Founder and SVP Business Development of Roam Mobility. "Every other mobile service can require a complicated paper work and dealer activation process, but with Ready SIM, you just pop it in your phone, text us your zip code, and you've got instant access and a local number with affordable, unlimited nationwide talk and text, with 4G data add-ons." Alex Besen, founder and CEO of The Besen Group LLC, an international mobile data industry consulting company, says the telecommunications industry has recognized for some time that existing prepaid solutions aren't meeting the needs of today's consumers, but until now, the technology simply wasn't there to support a completely self-activating SIM card.

"Mobile users want convenience, flexibility and privacy," he explains.


"With Ready SIM, people don't have to provide their personal details just to enjoy a few days, weeks or months of affordable phone use." "Ready SIM is ideal for people who don't want to commit to a specific provider or a long-term plan, are wary of sharing their personal information, or don't want to use their primary number when posting to Craigslist, social media, dating sites, or conducting job searches," says Aboulhosn. "It's also perfect for international travelers who want to avoid excessive roaming rates, and for corporate clients who need to provide an instant mobile solution for short-term projects and teams." Ready SIM works with any unlocked mobile phone, connecting users to a nationwide talk, text and data network that spans the USA, including Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Ready SIM customers have access to a nationwide 4G network that does not use any data throttling and provides reliable, high-speed data service. Ready SIM even allows data tethering, turning any smartphone into a mobile hotspot that can connect other devices to each other and to the Internet for no extra charge.

Starting November 19th, Ready SIM is available through its distributors and dealers. To learn more about Ready SIM find out where to purchase a Ready SIM or to become a master dealer or dealer visit www.readysim.com.
