Rent a cell phone for Germany. All of our rentals for Germany include unlimited calls and texts within Germany and throughout Europe plus unlimited high speed data. Please note that in order to call or text the USA or Canada, you must use an app. We recommend Talkatone as it is easy to use, free and you can call to landlines. WhatsApp of course is a great app but the limitation is that both users need to have it on their phone. Also, please note that in order to download most apps, you must rent an iPhone 6 or above.
Your rental is ready to go as soon as you arrive anywhere in Europe. The rental package includes the phone with the SIM card and service, all chargers and adapters, instructions, a return package and a travel carrying case.
While you can make calls in Germany and text in Germany without an app, many users tend to use their phones for activities involving data more than for calling. You can book hotels, check into your flight, use maps, check emails and more with a cell phone. Again, the iPhone 5 rental is good primarily for calling and browsing but not for downloading apps as most apps require a more recent operating system.
