(*)Pre-paid data-only without subscription for tablets. To get this, you have to get a new SIM, but of that, 12€ is converted into the first top up, so the SIM effectively costs 3€ including postage.

[edit] How to top up

You can choose [1] top up methods, including Paypal, VISA, MasterCard, bank transfer and SMS top-up.

[edit] Where to buy

Mobile Vikings is a online-only operator, the only way to get a sim is by mail, usually takes 2-3 working days. They deliver to any country for no extra charge.

If you order a SIM with a new number, you have to pay an extra €15 for it. If you have a (free) SIM* from another operator, you can have it converted to Mobile Vikings for free.

Hint: Order a SIM from another operator (or get one for free), to change it to Mobile Vikings.

[edit] Sim Sizes

Special SIM, be very careful with it! You get the SIM in standard format, but with a push-out mechanism for micro-sim; be careful not to break it if you want a full-size sim.
