I experienced running out of funds in my sim card outside the issuing
country in Europe. It's nearly impossible to recharge your sim card

outside
the issuing country.


This is not always true. Some prepaids can be recharged using top-up cards
from the same carrier in another country (e.g Vodafone UK/Italy). Others can
be recharged if you purchased top-up cards and brought them with you. Some
can be topped-up with a credit card, although often (but not always) it has
to be a credit card from the country where the card is based.

But your point is well taken, and often true. My Irish Meteor SIM expired
because I had no way to apply the top-ups I had, from outside of Ireland.

Ideal situation, of course, would be the ability to top up via a web page.
