Will my phone work in Israel?

 

Good Question. In order for your phone to work in israel it need to be GSM and unlocked. CDMA (such as verizon and sprint) phones will not work in Israel with any carrier. Additionally your phone needs to support 900/1800 frequencies. In The USA the freqency is 850/1900. Quad-band phones support all four and will work in Israel and the USA. You can read more about phone bands here.

 

Please note: Golan USA cannot and will guarantee or take responsibility as to whether your phone will work with the Golan service. Please contact your service provider and ask them if your phone is compatible.

Is my Phone Unlocked?

 

You should know that. If you don't know contact your service provider and ask them to unlock it for you.

How do I check which bands my phone uses?

 

Check your device specs, whether online or where you purchased your phone. www.gsmarena.com  is a good place to start.

How can I unlock my Phone?

 

Call your current provider ask them to unlock it as you are travelling abroad. If they refuse you can pester them and speak to their manager. If they still refuse based on a valid reason, (such as; under contract or debt) you can find dealers that can unlock your phone for you, like on ebay etc.

Can you unlock my Phone?

 

We can try. Click here to find out more.

Can I have my calls diverted to my Israeli Cellphone?

Sure. If you want to be reachable 24/7 (Note the time difference). Get the Golan 99 Shekel plan that gives you a virtual USA number. Then call your service provider and ask them to forward all calls to your "new" USA number.
