After having traveled between Israel and the US at least two dozen times, I am happy to share with you my insider secrets. Check out my recommendations for the best deals on cell phones and SIM cards for Israel.

I can still remember calling home from Israel back before cell phones, and the cost was astronomical. Can you believe you can now get a free SIM card, unlimited data and calls within Israel or almost anywhere in the world? All this for as little as 17 cents per minute!
