Simple Pricing Plans

Roaming can be complicated. Since 2003, ChitChat Communications (parent company of rangeRoamer) has always espoused a "no hidden fees" approach to selling. All rate plans have straight-forward all inclusive pricing. There are no surcharges, differences between calling cell phones vs. landlines, initiation charges, line connect fees, surtaxes, or any other 'gotchas.' Per FCC regulations, federal taxes do apply on your calls placed while in the United states, currently charged at a cumulative 12.9%. This only applies to calls made while in the USA.

I went to Amsterdam and the phone worked great!I called my mom everyday, and my husband received a couple of business calls. We're going back to Amsterdam over Christmas and New Year's, so I'll be buying more time for the phone. 5.0
Amsterdam, Sweden and Norway.I had absolutely no problems with the phone and was delighted with the service. The instant messaging service was great too.5.0

Holland and France. Never had a problem calling anywhere5.0
France, Belgium, Holland, Germany. Performed just fine. Only issue is the strange concept of not dialling directly but waiting for a return call before being connected.4.5
Great Britain, Holland and Ireland.Performed well in Ireland where service was almost non-existant which was surprising since it had worked so well before. Already have recommended you to others. We bought a phone and share with family members traveling abroad.5.0
I traveled to Paris and Rotterdam.The phone worked perfectly. It made traveling much easier.5.0
We were on a rhine river cruise from Amsterdam to Vienna , Austria.The RangeRoamer performed very well in the towns and the cities. But did not perform well while we were cruising on the river.4.0
Antwerp Belgium, Amsterdam NetherlandsUsed the phone once in Holland and it worked nicely. 5.0
We travelled throughout Europe ( Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, France) and the phones worked perfectly. My husband and I were at times in different countries from our 2 sons which was the purpose of the phones and we were able to communicate with ease.We rented 2 phones with additional minutes purchased for each. we didn't realize all the additional time had been placed on one phone until the other ran out of minutes. to make the problem worse, we had a credit card lost early in our trip of 3 weeks and that was the card we used for our RangeRoamer account so we could not recharge the phone with minutes. Your Service dept came to our rescue and credited the phone with minutes. It truly amazed me how quickly our problem was handled and without a bit of hesitation. thank you!5.0

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use my own phone?

If your phone is the right kind, why buy another one, right? You can use your own phone if it meets the following specs...

  • Uses GSM (AT&T, T-Mobile, purchased abroad, etc.)
  • world-capable (quad-band, or dual band international)
  • "unlocked" to accept any sim card from any carrier.

Review our phone compatibility chart to see if your phone is compatible.

GSM phones have a SIM card slot, shown above, which lets you put the rangeRoamer sim card in it.

All phones from AT&T and T-Mobile have this slot, but only 4% of phones from Verizon or Sprint do.

How will I be billed?


During checkout, you’ll choose how you want to pay for your usage of airtime while traveling.

  • PREPAID: Pay for minutes in advance, so you know your exact costs as you go.
  • BILL ME LATER: Use as much or little as you want, then we send you a bill by email.

The choice you make is purely a matter of preference. Prepaid lets you budget yourself better, but postpaid lets you avoid having to worry about buying minutes. It’s up to you, and you can change your choice at no charge anytime.
