Mobile phone SIM in Iran

Postby Nestico » Thu Jun 15, 2017 3:31 am

Hello. I m going to Iran overland in a few weeks.
Does anybody know if is possible for a foreigner to buy a local iranian SIM at some border with Turkey?
If yes, will it have data connection?
Thanks

Irancell has good serivice, also in English. A phone app and people in the callcenter also speaks english. You can buy a tourist SIM card with a validity of 30 days or a normal one. The tourist cards comes with a base around of GB, always recharchable. SIM cards you can buy at any shop with an irancell sign.

I arrived Iran in mid-Aug this year, was able to buy a sim card by showing passport. But got a news that from 1st Sep, foreigners are not allowed to buy sim card. Heard it from a traveller, not sure if it is true. But be prepared.
