Why use prepaid SIM cards?
A prepaid SIM card has many advantages. Because prepaid costs only if you are on the phone or surfing the internet. That's why the straightforward, contract-neutral prepaid SIM card is always your first choice for flexibility and low costs.
Advantage 1: Cost control
With a prepaid SIM card, you top up exactly the credit you need. As a result, you always have your costs in view. High mobile bills are the past. This is how you actively contribute to controlling the cost of your mobile phone bill.
Advantage 2: Flexibility
With a prepaid SIM card you can eliminate the often-annoying contracts with sometimes long contract duration and notice periods. This gives you flexibility and very individual options. If you conclude a mobile phone contract and find that it does not suit you, you will have to wait up to a year or even longer for the next termination option. With Lebara Mobile, it's easy to choose different tariff options. At the end of the usual four-week package period, you either opt for a new package, choose a new plan or simply let your package run out until you recharge your SIM card and start using it again.
Advantage 3: Price advantage
As a reputable provider of prepaid SIM cards active in the business for many years, we offer attractive prepaid promotions and favorable terms. You once acquire the prepaid starter pack and benefit from our tariff variety.
Advantage 4: No basic fee
Compared to contractual rates for mobile telephony the monthly and often high base fee is eliminated with prepaid. This means no costs if you do not use the telephone for calls or web applications.
Advantage 5: Individuality
Lebara, as a provider of prepaid telephony, has chosen a variety of packages and tariffs. Customize your chosen prepaid package at any time exactly to the current individual situation.
How do you design your individual mobile phone tariff?
With Lebara Prepaid you can take advantage of contract-free mobile telephony and benefit from a high degree of flexibility in choosing the right tariff. Because our mobile and data tariffs adapt to your individual life situation.

Then you decide simply for the suitable package with extra favorable data volume in top quality.

Triple SIM - the right SIM card for every device
Lebara Mobile SIM cards are exclusively called Triple SIM's. It is a card carrier in credit card format, which contains three formats in one card. So you always get the right SIM card for each of your devices and can use it very flexibly in different devices. Before removing the SIM card from the perforation, check the size of the SIM card slot on your smartphone or tablet. The different SIM sizes are referred to as either Mini SIM, Micro SIM or Nano SIM. Once the correct card size is determined, break the larger SIM card out of the card cage. You now hold a Mini SIM in your hand. Now remove the top of the perforation and you will receive a Micro SIM. For the Nano SIM card, the smallest available SIM card size, you only need the innermost part. Here you can almost only see the golden chip. Simply remove the lateral projection at the predetermined breaking point.
