    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: National Geographic Talk Abroad SIM – 1070 International SIM Card (Wireless Phone Accessory)
    I bought this sim card because it seemed like a good concept and as a National Geographic Society member, I trusted that they had done their homework before putting their name on a product of this sort. Unlike some other reviewers, I read the description and was aware of the call-back feature. In practice, it worked well enough in the UK, but in the Netherlands, it could only receive calls. When I tried to make a call, I received a message: “you are forbidden to make this call.” And no callback. I ended up buying a Dutch sim card for 10 euros and it worked fine.
    On my return to the US, I went back to the Amazon website and got permission to return the card, hoping to get a partial refund (I obviously did not expect a full refund, since the card worked fine in the UK). I sent it back and now, 2 months later, have not received a refund, nor has the card been returned to me. You would think that if the company felt I was not entitle to a refund, they would at least have the decency to return the card to me, since it must have had at least $30 of credit on it.
    The bottom line is that in most situations you are much better off buying local sim cards abroad. Apparently the attractive idea of using a single sim card throughout much of the world is difficult to implement, and in any event this company cannot be trusted to deal honestly with its customers.

    From the manual: “The Talk Abroad service is a ‘callback’ service. This means that in order for you to complete a call, you must dial the destination phone number and then wait for the Talk Abroad network to call you back.”
    Not what I expected. It would have been helpful had I known that up front.
