Airtel-World-SIM

Currently, a one-minute incoming call in the US costs Rs. 100, while a one-minute outgoing call from the US costs Rs. 150. With World SIM, you will have to pay only Rs. 10 and Rs. 41 respectively for the same services.

The benefit of World SIM over international calling cards (like the ones offered by Matrix) is that you are able to retain your original phone number. For the subscribers of Airtel World SIM, the same SIM will work in all the country,said Shireesh Joshi, director — marketing (mobile services), Bharti Airtel.Airtel World SIM will cost Rs. 500. If it takes off, expect similar services from other telecom operators.
