Lingmo Travel SIM Local Number Service means that we will set you up with a local format number that your Travel SIM will be paired to. 

This means that instead of people calling you directly on your international Lingmo Travel SIM number, they can now reach you on your local number for cheaper.


Our Local Number service will cost you $5.00 per month and an extra $0.25/min to receive a call. However, your friends and family calling you will be saved from the international charges. They will then only get charged as per making a normal national call.

Setting up Local Number is easy, simply log into your account to set it up.


Note: Setting up local number will forward your calls, however, SMS messages cannot be forwarded. This means people sending you an SMS will need to send it direct to your Travel SIM number not your local number

Yes, once you have set up a local number you can contact your carrier to forward your normal mobile number to your new Lingmo Travel SIM local number.

Note: There will be charges associated with setting up mobile call forwarding and only calls will be forwarded.

If you have set up a local number to your Lingmo Travel SIM, your friends and family would only pay the rate for a local Australian phone call when calling your Lingmo Travel SIM.
