See details for an unlimited world subscription here:


Note the difference between coverage to landlines vs. mobiles.  Also, if you buy a subscription there is some fine print about "reasonable use."  You can read it if you're going to be making a LOT of calls.


You'd pay the cost of the one month subscription in advance.  Be careful to cancel before the next month if you don't want to auto-renew.


An alternative is to buy a few dollars worth of credits.  Those would be taken off your account on a per use basis.


How are you going to use your iPhone with no SIM card?  Will it even start up and be able to connect to wifi with no SIM?
