The SIM  will not let me make outgoing calls nor is the internet working. Could you help me set this up or is there a store in Tel Aviv I can visit today?

This message means that your line was shut off.

This happens because your line may have been reported lost or stolen, or your system shut the line due to an unpaid bill. This could also have happened as our carrier may have detected unusual activity on the line.

please note: we keep the lines shut till a day or two before your rental starts and until the day your contracts ends, for security reasons.

If for whatever reason you need to change your start or end date of your contract, please be in touch with us directly via email service@nesmobile.com

The price for our pocket WiFi device really depends on the duration of your rental.

Our basic plan for short term rentals starts from $7.95/day.  We have a monthly cap of $150. This means that if you are visiting for more than 18 days, you will not pay extra for those days. The cap is per 30 days.

Our student plans (long term rentals) start from $69.95 per month with a minimum of 5 Months. This means that if you plan on being in Israel for more than 44 days, you are better off taking our student plan. Please contact us so we can adjust your account. PRE VAT (value added tax). Which means you must add 17% to the final price.

Our prices change from time to time – so we strongly recommend you see our latest prices online.

Please note that the prices we mention on our site are PRE VAT (value added tax). This means you must add 17% to the final price.

We offer special coupons and promotions from time to time. Please check to see if any discounts are avaialble. Coupons can be found HERE.

Our pocket WiFi plans are UNLIMITED on usage. This means that we do not have a cap on the amount of data you consume. We had already clients that downloaded 50Gb of data.

Yes, you can call an 800 number in the USA from an Israel SIM card as part of the Nes Mobile plans. Sometimes, when calling a 1-800 number in the US you may hear a notice saying that international calls are NOT toll-free. You will hear this message as the phone system knows you are calling from outside the US, and they are notifying you that the international call may not be free of charge. However, our plans cover toll-free numbers in the USA, and you will not be charged an additional fee by Nes Mobile.

How do I call in Israel?
  • To dial in Israel, simply enter the area code and number. For example: 052-123-4567 or you could dial +972-52-123-4567
How do I dial internationally?
  • To dial internationally, please dial “+”  or “oo” and then the country code. For example, to call the NYC number, 212-123-4567, you would dial + –> then 1 for the US country code –> then the number:  Dial +1-212-123-4567 or  Dial 00-1-212-123-4567.

Nes Mobile provides Israeli SIM cards which you can insert in your unlocked phone.  We do not rent out smartphones.

VAT (Value Added Tax) is the equivalent of a sales tax in many countries. As of August 2017 Israeli VAT is 17%. VAT is added to all sales and services and is generally included in the price. In some cases tourists are exempt from VAT and in other cases, tourists to Israel need to apply for a VAT Refund.

Please Note: Israel SIM cards and phone rentals, are NOT exempt from VAT for tourists. Most companies providing such services tend to hide that in the fine print. However, NES Mobile, known for its integrity and quality service, clearly displays that you must add VAT to SIM and pocket wifi rentals.
