Bring your own phone to Israel

With NES Mobile, you can rent an Israel phone or get an Israel SIM card. Bringing your cell phone from home to Israel is easy – but to use our service, there are some technical requirements:


  1. Your phone must use a SIM card (most new phones nowadays have SIM cards)
  2. Make sure your phone is unlocked (i.e. not programmed to only work with your original carrier’s network). You can ask your carrier to unlock it for a short while.
  3. Your phone must be a GSM phone with the following frequencies: GSM 900 MHz & 1800 MHz, UMTS 850 MHz & 2100 MHz. Most new phones have quad bands (so they will work in Israel).
  4. Please note we cannot guarantee compatibility of outside phones.
  5. Testing that your phone is unlocked: try inserting different carriers SIM card into your phone. For example, if you use a Version SIM, try inserting an AT&T SIM into your phone. If the phone registers on the AT&T network, your phone in unlocked!

4G LTE Israel SIM Card for tourist high-speed download & upload

How fast is the network for Nes Mobile’s 4G LTE Israel SIM Card for tourists? Well, this, of course, depends on many factors like cell reception, available bandwidth and so on.

According to opensignal.com, the average 4G LTE speed is 28 Mbps. Our internal testing on Cellcom’s network (which NES Mobile uses for its Israel 4G SIM card service) showed an average speed of about 23 Mbps on 4G, and 8 Mbps on 3G. Our internal testing is by no means scientific, but more of an internal poll and our testing results can vary based on location and other factors.

According to Opensignal.com Israel has deployed the LTE network with around 62.7% network availability. We are a little lower than Indonesia (62.77%) and a little higher than South Africa (62.68%). you can read more about this on our BLOG. You can see a map of Israel with coverage based on the different networks HERE. The Average speed of the LTE network is 18.88 Mbps, which is faster than the WiFi average.

As you can see on the screenshot, NES Mobile Israel Unlimited data with LTE high-speed download & upload speaks for itself. We show 27.2 Mbps downlaod and 6.5 Mbps upload speeds. This test was taken in Jerusalem on a 4G LTE network, with an Asus ZenPhone 2.

In general, cell networks can be divided into two: 2G/3G and 4G (or sometimes referred to as LTE).


2G and 3G are older technologies. These older networks typically have a large geographic coverage but deliver slower data speeds. All our SIMs are LTE compatible, but sometimes the devices themselves are not compatible. If you know you don’t have a 4G phone, you might want to switch your phone to 2G/3G mode only. This will save a lot of battery power.


4G is the newest generation of network technology. LTE (which stands for “Long Term Evolution“) provides fast data speeds suitable for streaming video, and voice calls with very good audio quality.

Unlimited Voice & Text

All our plans come with unlimited calls within Israel and to US and Canada. 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 is not going to be on their account. You need not worry about this, as our plans cover toll-free numbers in the US.

Texting in Israel is also part of all our plans, so feel free and text! Please note that texting in Israel does NOT include MMS (multimedia messages) that will be charged on a higher rate.

Also, by default, our plans do NOT include international texting. This Feature can be purchased during the sign-up process above.
