TravelSIM Offering A Dual-SIM Phone Bundle

One of the challenges of using an alternative SIM for cheaper calls when travelling overseas is that you have no way of tracking calls or texts on your standard SIM. TravelSIM is about to start selling a bundle which includes a dual-SIM mobile phone, meaning you can use your additional SIM for cheap outgoing calls while still keeping track of incoming calls on your main account.

The $129 package, which will be sold through Australia Post outlets from October 31 until the end of the year, includes the Samsung Ch@t322 Dual SIM phone, which has quad-band support and isn’t locked to any network, plus a TravelSIM Starter Pack (which costs $49.95 purchased on its own). Early purchasers also get an Energizer portable charger thrown in.

That solution still won’t be for everyone, especially those of us who can’t imagine life without a smartphone. However, it’s easier to have a dual-SIM phone than travel with two handsets, which is how I’ve solved this problem in the past. Tempted by the thought of a dual-SIM phone when on the road?
