Greece: 7 Best Prepaid SIM Cards Buying Guide (2023)

Greece – the birthplace of democracy, the Olympic Games & the beginning of Philosophy.

The country has an impressive history, which is still visible throughout the country when exploring it.

Besides its history and culture, Greece is also a popular travel destination.

For some, especially the youth, it is an excellent destination for alcohol-fueled holidays.

For others, exploring its stunning nature is the main draw to the country.

Whatever you feel like doing in Greece, you certainly will not be bored – and want to share your experiences online.

But beware – international roaming can be expensive. Sometimes, it's like daylight robbery.

Luckily, using a local SIM card can make you avoid international roaming rates and instead enjoy local rates.

But, how much do SIM cards cost in Greece?

You can get a Greek SIM card for 5 EUR (5.90 USD) from COSMOTE, Vodafone & WIND in their stores. Sub-brand SIM cards (Frog Mobile, Q, Vodafone CU & What's Up) are also sold in their stores for the same price. SIM cards are also sold at airports, including Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos (ATH).

Special note for those from Ukraine: be sure to ask about special benefits for Ukrainians. Many mobile operators around Europe have waived fees for you or introduced exclusive plans, including free calls back to Ukraine. Слава Україні! 🇺🇦

Note: Frog Mobile, a COSMOTE MVNO, SIM cards are not sold in every COSMOTE store, so you may have to shop around to find them if you truly want one

Just looking at the SIM card prices, no mobile operator has a clear advantage because they all sell them for the same nice price.

Of course, some are better than the others, but there is (luckily) no mobile operator that is so bad that you should avoid them at all costs in Greece.

But there are still some advantages of going with a particular mobile operator than another.

And I will tell you about that today.

In this guide, I will go over everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Greece. Let’s go.

Can You Buy a SIM Card in Greece?

Anyone 18 years or older living in or visiting Greece can buy a Greek SIM card from COSMOTE (+What's Up & Frog Mobile), Vodafone (CU) & WIND (F2G + Q) in their stores or from authorized resellers with no restrictions.

You do have to comply with the SIM card registration regulations.

Moreover, you need a phone that supports the frequencies used in the country (preferably all of them to have the most optimal experience while in Greece).

Furthermore, you need to have a SIM-lock-free device.

Where Can You Buy a SIM Card in Greece?

You can get a Greek SIM card in COSMOTE/Germanos, Vodafone & WIND stores and from authorized dealers. The sub-brands (Q, Vodafone CU & What's Up) are also sold in their stores – Frog Mobile is not available in all COSMOTE stores. They are also available at several airports, including Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos (ATH).

You can buy a Greek SIM card in the following airports:

  • Corfu – Corfu International Airport “Ioannis Kapodistrias” (CFU)
  • Crete – Heraklion International Airport “Nikos Kazantzakis” (HER)
  • Mykonos – Mykonos Airport (JMK)
  • Rhodes – Rhodes/Diadoras International Airport (RHO)
  • Santorini – Santorini (Thira) International Airport (JTR)
  • Thessalonoki – Thessaloniki Airport “Makedonia” (SKG)
  • Zakynthos – Zakynthos International Airport “Dionysios Solomos” (ZTH)

You can expect to pay the following for Greek SIM cards:

  • COSMOTE Greece: 5 EUR
  • Vodafone Greece: 5 EUR
  • WIND Greece: 5 EUR
  • Frog Mobile: 5 EUR
  • Q Greece: 5 EUR
  • Vodafone CU: 5 EUR
  • What's Up Greece: 5 EUR

While there are no true tourist SIM cards in Greece, Vodafone does sell plans targeting tourists (costing 8.50 EUR and 17 EUR), which can be activated with normal Vodafone SIM cards.

For up-to-date EUR:your currency (let's say USD) exchange rates, use the Wise Currency Converter tool.

Can You Use Your Phone in Greece?

Greece uses GSM technology for mobile communications. CDMA phones will not work in Greece. If your phone has a SIM card slot, then it supports GSMA (99% of the phones do support GSM nowadays).

Traditional European frequencies are used in Greece, which are mostly used in ITU Regions 1 and 3 (Africa, Asia (including the Middle East), Europe & Oceania).

The Americas (North-, Central– & South America + the Caribbean – ITU Region 2) use American frequencies, which differ from the European ones.

ITU Regions Map

If you bought your phone in Africa, Asia, Europe, or Oceania (ITU regions 1 and 3), you should not experience any issues with using your phone in Greece.

If you purchased your phone in the Americas (ITU Region 2) and have a low/medium-end device (without Tri-Band or Quad-Band) support, then there is a possibility you cannot use your phone when in Greece or can only use slower networks (3G or 2G).

If you have a medium/high-end device with Tri-Band or Quad-Band support, you can use your phone in Greece (to some extent) – also on 4G/LTE and 5G NR.

Mobile Operators, Networks & Frequencies in Greece

Greece has three mobile operators, three sub-brands and one Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) easily accessible to travelers offering prepaid services:

  • COSMOTE Greece
  • Vodafone Greece
  • WIND Greece
  • Frog Mobile (COSMOTE Greece MVNO)
  • Q Greece (WIND Greece sub-brand)
  • Vodafone CU (Vodafone Greece sub-brand)
  • What's Up (COSMOTE sub-brand)

The following frequencies are used in Greece:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz
  • 3G: 900 MHz & 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20), 1800 MHz (Band 3) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: 3500 MHz (n78)

You can learn more about frequencies in the video below.

To check whether your phone will work in Greece, check out this page by Will My Phone Work (may be outdated or inaccurate at times).

Again, make sure your phone is unlocked. Otherwise, you will not be able to use any SIM card except the one from your home operator (meaning you have to roam internationally or buy another unlocked phone that does support the frequencies listed above).

If you want to learn how international roaming works, this guide explains it in-depth. If you wonder why it is often so expensive to roam, this article explains the hidden reason they do not want you to know.

A Note about Tazamobile

Tazamobile Greece Logo
© Tazamobile

In the previous version of this guide, I included Tazamobile – a Vodafone Greece MVNO.

While it does have reasonable plans with attractive international call rates, it may not be the best option for travelers.

Tazamobile SIM cards are sold by the Taza van that moves from location every day.

Tazamobile Greece Vans
© Tazamobile

It does not make sense for tourists to chase a van that does not even come to popular attractions in Greece.

Moreover, the other Greek mobile operators, including Vodafone itself, have similar prices for plans as Tazamobile does, so it is not worth it to hunt that van.

Tazamobile Greece Mobile Data Internet Bundles

As a result, Tazamobile will not be covered in this guide.

A Note about Top-Up (Telecommunication) Taxes in Greece

A 12% tax is charged on all top-ups in Greece.

Unlike VAT (Value Added Tax, similar to GST (Goods and Services Tax)), which is included in all prices in Greece (as per EU law), the 12% telecommunications tax is charged after topping up.

This means that your 10 EUR recharge will leave you with 8.80 EUR.

Below is an overview of actual credit left after recharging for reference:

Top-UpCredit After 12% Tax
10 EUR8.80 EUR
12 EUR10.56 EUR
15 EUR13.25 EUR
20 EUR17.60 EUR
30 EUR26.40 EUR
40 EUR35.20 EUR
50 EUR44 EUR
100 EUR88 EUR

Let's just say I was rather surprised I did not have enough credit to buy a plan the first time I topped up my Vodafone SIM card in Greece 🥲.

VoLTE & VoWiFi in Greece

Both VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G) – also known as HD Voice) and VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi – also known as WiFi calling) are available in Greece. All Greek mobile operators offer VoLTE, but not VoWiFi.

This means that your phone does not have to downgrade to 2G or 3G when making a call in Greece (unlike mobile operators that do not support VoLTE).

The following mobile operators offer VoLTE and VoWiFi in Greece:

  • COSMOTE Greece
  • Vodafone Greece
  • Frog Mobile
  • Vodafone CU
  • What's Up Greece

The following mobile operators offer VoLTE only in Greece:

  • WIND Greece
  • Q Greece

VoWiFi is, as the name implies, calling on a WiFi connection as opposed to on a cellular network.

5G NR in Greece

Commercial 5G NR has been available in Greece since December 2020. It is available on the COSMOTE, Vodafone & WIND networks. 5G NR is offered to prepaid customers (including the sub-brands Q, Vodafone CU & What's Up). Frog Mobile does not have 5G NR access (yet).

Best SIM Card in Greece

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Greece, I recommend going with COSMOTE or What's Up. COSMOTE has the best overall network, with the best coverage and fastest speeds – even for 5G NR. What's Up is a COSMOTE sub-brand with slightly lower prices but full access to the COSMOTE network.

Greek SIM Card Reviews

When I revisited Greece, I tried out three Greek SIM cards again: COSMOTE Greece, Vodafone CU Greece & WIND Greece.

While I give my opinions and recommendations in this guide, I share my personal experiences in my reviews (else… they would not be reviews 🤪).

I recommend reading the reviews after deciding which Greek SIM card will be the best for you, after reading more about the SIM card you are interested in, or after your personal comparison.

At the end of each SIM card section, I will remind you and link to the review of the said SIM card so that you can flow easily to the next part of your assessment.

Best eSIM in Greece

COSMOTE and What's Up offer eSIMs to prepaid customers.

Vodafone Greece also has eSIMs, but it is unknown whether they are offered to prepaid customers as well.

I will ask Vodafone about this March (2022) when I revisit Greece 🇬🇷😎.

As promised, I would ask the mobile operators if they offer eSIM to prepaid customers – they do not 😔.

WIND Greece, Frog Mobile, Q Greece & Vodafone CU, have no eSIMs – not even for postpaid customers (where applicable).

Note that the Greek mobile operators require your identification (ID for EU/EEA travelers and passport for anyone else) for eSIMs and physical SIM cards (will be discussed later).

However, you can get travel eSIMs from Airalo, Holafly & Nomad.

Airalo has the Meraki Mobile eSIMs:

With the Eurolink eSIM, you can save a lot of money by skipping the initial SIM card costs per country you visit – averaging 10.78 USD/country in Europe (and get 5G NR access at no additional cost)!

Airalo Eurolink eSIM Review by Phone Travel Wiz

Holafly and Nomad also have eSIMs covering all of the European Union (and more).

But honestly, the Eurolink eSIM is superior (but you can consider the Holafly Europe eSIM if you want unlimited data in 30+ countries – just do not forget about code PHONETRAVELWIZ if you go with Holafly).

SIM Card Registration in Greece

SIM card registration with your passport information is mandatory in Greece. It will often be done at the point of sale.

  • Find out which countries have SIM card registration regulations and what is required from you (lookup tool)
SIM Card Registration Worldwide Tool by Phone Travel Wiz

In the larger cities of Greece (Athens, Patres, Thessaloniki, etc.) you will notice employees from the mobile operators walking around trying to sell SIM cards (they often look like young students).

These are official salespeople from the mobile operators and not a bunch of scammers, so you can trust them.

In fact, some stores will even sent you back to the street sellers if you wish to buy a prepaid SIM card (happened to me with Vodafone in 2022, ha).

As SIM card registration is mandatory in Greece, the salespeople will have a machine to scan your passport or ID to fulfill the regulatory requirements.

Unlike buying your SIM card from a third-party reseller (like a kiosk, newsstand, or convenience store), SIM card activation and registration is close to instantly when done by a street seller.

Do note that the salespeople on the street may not sell the lower-priced plans mentioned in this guide.

Moreover, some may activate unnecessary services that may deduct credit from each recharge unknowingly (which I experienced firsthand back in 2015 🥲).

April 2022 update: things seem to have changed. Nowadays, they offer MUCH more perks on the streets than what advertised on the sites of the mobile operators!

EU Roaming in Greece

European Union (EU) & European Economic Area (EEA)

Greece is part of the European Union (EU).

Since June 2017, those with EU/EEA (European Economic Area) SIM cards can roam for free in other EU/EEA nations, including Greece.

This means that, in the majority of cases, you do not need to purchase a Greek SIM card if you already have an EU/EEA SIM card because you can roam without additional costs.

However, conditions do apply. Mobile operators in some countries may impose a roaming Fair Use Policy (FUP).

In countries where local mobile data rates are extremely low (such as in the Baltics and Nordics), mobile operators may still charge you for roaming in the EU/EEA.

Be sure to head over to the international roaming page to learn whether your mobile operator offers free roaming while in Greece or if restrictions apply.

Roaming in the EU with Greek SIM Cards

Greece and the Greek mobile operators have largely adopted the roam like at home regulations principles early on.

However, some plans have an EU/EEA roaming cap.

Moreover, the standard Fair Use Policy applies where you should not be roaming over 50% of the time over a four-month period.

If you do so, EU roaming rates will apply. You are then better off buying local prepaid SIM cards in other EU nations.

Greece Mobile Speeds, Mobile Internet Prices & Insights

Flag of Greece

In the past, mobile data used to be criminally expensive in Greece.

Nowadays, the costs are reasonable for European standards.

Yet, many who claim the costs are still outrageous because they still have outdated numbers in mind.

So, how expensive is mobile data in Greece?

The average price for 1 GB of data in Greece is 8.16 USD, far above the European average of 2.50 USD. The world average is 4.07 USD.

The Czech Republic is the only other European country with an average cost of 1 GB of data higher than 8 USD (8.15 USD) – also way too high!

Cable.co.uk split Europe into three territories: Western Europe, Eastern Europe & the Baltics.

The Western European average cost of 1 GB of data, using Cable.co.uk’s definition, is 2.66 USD.

But let's take a step back because Greece's numbers are higher than they should be.

When you look at the plans later, you will see that you can get a couple of GB for a few EUR, like 3 EUR, which is valid for 7 days.

While Cable.co.uk's numbers are often accurate, they do not seem to be for Greece.

So you do not have to spend at least 8 USD (or 7 EUR) for just 1 GB of data.

For example, Vodafone Greece has internet packages with 4 GB of data for 5 EUR, valid for 7 days.

That is not too unreasonable, right?

Now that we have cleared that issue, let's talk about mobile data speeds.

Are they slow in Greece? Not at all.

Greece's median mobile download speed is around 51 Mbps.

While neighboring Bulgaria, Cyprus & North Macedonia have (much) faster median mobile download speeds than Greece (87.82 Mbps, 76.66 Mbps & 61.96 Mbps, respectively), Greece is going amazingly – even for European (Union) standards.

And with 5G NR rolling out fast and available to prepaid customers too, Greece is bound to rank higher on the leaderboard (unless other countries rollout 5G NR faster than Greece does).

Okay, now it is time to know which mobile operator is the fastest in Greece.

That would be COSMOTE, with a median download of 60.68 Mbps. Followed by WIND Greece (30.33 Mbps) and Vodafone Greece (28.30 Mbps).

Fast mobile download speeds can be found in Athens, Marousi & Thessaloniki, with median download speeds of 43.52 Mbps, 103.91 Mbps & 42.03 Mbps, respectively.

Okay, those numbers were related to 4G/LTE. Who is winning the 5G NR race (for now)?

The mobile operator with the best 5G NR speeds is COSMOTE, with an average download speed of 178.3 Mbps. Followed by Wind (146.6 Mbps) and Vodafone (110.3 Mbps).

In terms of upload speeds, there is (currently) no clear winner.

All Greek mobile operators are doing well regarding overall 5G NR network performance, while COSMOTE is winning the speed race, of course).

The same applies to 5G NR availability. You gave to go with COSMOTE if you want to try out 5G NR throughout the country.

So, all this 5G NR talk is fun… but what if you do not have a 5G NR compatible device?

Which Greek mobile operator has the best overall 4G/LTE network?

That would be COSMOTE – no doubt. Winning in all categories.

With low to average SIM card prices, extensive nationwide coverage, incredible mobile download speeds, and average mobile data rates, you should have a smooth network experience in Greece.

Currency in Greece

Greece uses the Euro with the symbol EUR (which will be used throughout this guide).

However, prices are often listed as just . For example, 25 EUR = €25.

For reference, below are some exchange rates between EUR and USD (US Dollars):

  • 1 EUR = 1.15 USD
  • 10 EUR = 10.75 USD
  • 100 EUR = 107.50 USD

For up-to-date EUR:your currency (let's say GBP – (British) Pound (Sterling)) exchange rates, use the Wise Currency Converter tool.

If your credit/debit card charges you foreign exchange fees, get yourself a Wise Borderless Account and Debit Card.

Their fees are MUCH lower than banks and credit card companies charge you (and Wise is transparent about their fees, unlike banks).

I have saved literal THOUSANDS of Australian Dollars and Euros, my main currencies, when using Wise abroad when traveling compared to my debit and credit cards.

Greek Prepaid SIM Cards

Below, I will guide you through COSMOTE (+ What's Up Greece), Vodafone Greece (+ Vodafone CU), WIND Greece (+Q Greece) & Frog Mobile, and go through:

  • Background information
  • Mobile coverage
  • SIM card types, prices, and availability
  • Recharge / top-up information
  • Combo plans, data plans, and special packs (such as social media packs) 

With that being said, let’s see what Greece has to offer to us.


COSMOTE & What's Up Greece

COSMOTE Greece Logo
© COSMOTE

COSMOTE is the largest mobile operator in Greece.

It also has the best overall network performance.

COSMOTE also has a sub-brand called What's Up Greece (just What's Up).

What's Up Greece Logo
© What's Up/COSMOTE

Initially, it was a youth-focused brand.

Nowadays, anyone, including the elderly, can get What's Up SIM cards 🤪.

The difference between COSMOTE and What's Up is that What's Up has slightly cheaper plans.

It also offers perks and goodies that are interesting to the (Greek) youth (you may not be able to take advantage of these perks as a short-term visitor).

There is no difference between the two brands besides the COSMOTE- and What's Up-specific plans.

What's Up customers have full access to the COSMOTE network, including 5G NR access.

COSMOTE (and What's Up) use(s) the following frequencies:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz
  • 3G: 900 MHz & 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20), 1800 MHz (Band 3) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: 3500 MHz (n78)
  • VoLTE: Yes
  • VoWiFi: Yes

This is what you will learn about COSMOTE & What's Up:

* Coverage
* How to Get a COSMOTE & What's Up SIM Card & SIM Card Price
* Topping Up Options & Methods + Balance Check
* Plans & Packages
* APN/Internet Settings

Coverage – COSMOTE & What's Up Greece

COSMOTE has the best 4G/LTE and 5G NR coverage in Greece.

This was also confirmed by Opensignal.

Below is COSMOTE's coverage map produced by Speedtest:

However, click here to see COSMOTE's official coverage map.

SIM Card Price – COSMOTE & What's Up Greece

You can get a COSMOTE or What's Up SIM card for 5 EUR in COSMOTE or Germanos (ΓΕΡΜΑΝΟΣ) stores. COSMOTE and What's Up street sellers will sell SIM cards too, although a plan purchase is required. COSMOTE SIM cards are sold at airports (through ConnectPhone), like Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos (ATH), but What's Up SIM cards are not.

It is also possible to buy COSMOTE and What's Up SIM cards from other dealers, including kiosks, convenience stores & small grocery stores throughout Greece.

However, SIM card activation can take a few days when done through these third parties, so you are better off getting your SIM card in a COSMOTE or Germanos store.

It is also possible to get a COSMOTE or What's Up eSIM for 9.90 EUR (compared to 5 EUR for a regular SIM card.

COSMOTE and What's Up do not have a complete list of which devices are supported, except for stating that Huawei, iPhones & Samsung phones can use eSIM.

So I assume the standard phones are supported (Huawei P40 series, iPhone 11/12/13 series & Samsung (Galaxy (Note) (S)20 & 21 series).

My Review – COSMOTE & What's Up Greece

I had the chance to try out What's Up in March 2022.

Although I would probably have gone for COSMOTE itself, it has a SIM card shortage.

I had to visit about five stores before finding one with SIM cards in stock.

And as it was a Saturday, most stores were closing within an hour… so I could not be picky 🤪.

Either way, What's Up has slightly cheaper options than COSMOTE itself while having full access to the COSMOTE network.

Except for 5G NR, it seemed… I did not have any 5G NR reception during my weekend in Greece, even though it is advertised that What's Up customers can use it.

Even then, I had a pleasant experience What's Up.

Vodafone Greece & Vodafone CU

Vodafone Logo

Vodafone Greece, just Vodafone, is the second-largest mobile operator in Greece.

It is, together with WIND Greece, the oldest mobile operator in the country.

Vodafone also has a sub-brand called Vodafone CU.

Vodafone CU Greece Logo
© Vodafone Greece (CU)

It is a youth-focused brand.

Nowadays, anyone, including the elderly, can get Vodafone CU SIM cards 🤪.

The difference between Vodafone and Vodafone CU is that Vodafone CU has slightly cheaper plans.

It also offers perks and goodies that are interesting to the (Greek) youth (you may not be able to take advantage of these perks as a short-term visitor).

There is no difference between the two brands besides the brand-specific plans.

Vodafone CU customers have full access to the Vodafone network, including 5G NR access.

Vodafone uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz
  • 3G: 900 MHz & 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20), 1800 MHz (Band 3) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: 3500 MHz (n78)
  • VoLTE: Yes
  • VoWiFi: Yes

Coverage – Vodafone Greece & Vodafone CU

Vodafone has extensive coverage throughout Greece.

4G/LTE is available almost anywhere.

Below is Vodafone's coverage map produced by Speedtest:

SIM Card Price – Vodafone Greece & Vodafone CU

You can get a Vodafone (CU) SIM card for 5 EUR in Vodafone stores. Vodafone (CU) street sellers will sell SIM cards too, although a plan purchase is required. Vodafone SIM cards are sold at Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos (ATH), but Vodafone CU SIM cards are not.

It is also possible to buy Vodafone (CU) SIM cards from other dealers, including kiosks, convenience stores & small grocery stores throughout Greece.

However, SIM card activation can take a few days when done through these third parties, so you are better off getting your SIM card in a Vodafone store.

It is also possible to get a Vodafone eSIM for 9.90 EUR for 9.90 EUR (compared to 5 EUR for a regular SIM card).

However, it is unclear if eSIMs are available for prepaid customers too.

Nor is it known if Vodafone CU has eSIMs too.

I will ask Vodafone about this March (2022) when I revisit Greece 🇬🇷😎.

I asked – Vodafone (CU) eSIMs are only available to postpaid customers, unfortunately 😔.

Note that the Greek mobile operators require your identification (passport) for (future) eSIMs and for physical SIM card.

Therefore, if you wish to use an eSIM, you can go with the Greece (Meraki Mobile) eSIMs from Airalo (1 GB/7 days, 3 GB/30 days, 5 GB/30 daysmost popular with PTW readers & 10 GB/30 daysvery popular with PTW readers).

My Review – COSMOTE & What's Up Greece

I had the chance to try out Vodafone CU in March 2022.

Although I would probably have gone for Vodafone itself, the salesperson I got my SIM card from only had Vodafone CU SIM cards.

In 2015, I had a bad experience with Vodafone because the salesperson enabled some features that took credit from each recharge, forcing me to make additional top-ups.

Remember when very early in this guide where I said salespeople on the streets sell Vodafone (CU) SIM cards and that they are legit?

They are – and they actually sell plans with waaaaay better data allowances than advertised on Vodafone (CU)'s site and on offline channels.

But you have to be aware of these deals… and they are not available all year round.

Hence, I only mention the official advertised plans in this guide.

But you can learn about the underground plans in my Vodafone CU review.

🛑 Before you continue… 🛑

You should NOT buy a Vodafone (CU) SIM card on a weekend if (1) you are only staying for the weekend or (2) love fast speeds (like myself).

Vodafone HQ has to manually enable 4G/LTE, which is done on a business day.

Guess who bought a Vodafone SIM card on the weekend, with stores closed on Sundays? 🥲

You can read about my experiences here.

Oh, by the way, if you love fights, the Vodafone store I visited had employees and two customers fighting each other. Things can get passionate with Vodafone, lmao.

Nowadays, Q Telecom is simply known as Q.

Frog Mobile is a COSMOTE MVNO (or somewhat of a COSMOTE sub-brand).

In the past, it was the cheapest option you had for being on the COSMOTE network.

Now, the difference between COSMOTE, What's Up & Frog Mobile is minimal.

However, it differentiates itself by offering attractive international call rates.

That is why Frog Mobile is popular with the expat community in Greece.

To learn about Frog Mobile’s frequencies, jump back to COSMOTE’s frequencies.

This is what you will learn about Frog Mobile:

* Coverage
* How to Get a Frog Mobile SIM Card & SIM Card Price
* Topping Up Options & Methods + Balance Check
* Plans & Packages
* APN/Internet Settings

Coverage – Frog Mobile

Frog Mobile is a COSMOTE MVNO, meaning Frog Mobile uses the COSMOTE network and does not have its own mobile infrastructure.

To find out what to expect in terms of coverage with Frog Mobile, jump to the COSMOTE Coverage section.

Note that Frog Mobile has no 5G NR access.

SIM Card Price – Frog Mobile

You can get a Frog Mobile SIM card for 5 EUR in select COSMOTE or Germanos (ΓΕΡΜΑΝΟΣ) stores. COSMOTE prefers you to get COSMOTE or What's Up SIM cards instead of Frog Mobile, so not all COSMOTE stores have Frog Mobile SIM cards in stock. Frog Mobile SIM cards are not sold at airports like Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos (ATH), but What's Up SIM cards are not.

It is also possible to buy Frog Mobile SIM cards from other dealers, including kiosks, convenience stores & small grocery stores throughout Greece.

However, SIM card activation can take a few days when done through these third parties, so you are better off getting your SIM card in a COSMOTE or Germanos store.

Frog Mobile has no eSIMs – not even for postpaid customers.

Note that the Greek mobile operators require your identification (passport) for (future) eSIMs and for physical SIM card.

Therefore, if you wish to use an eSIM, you can go with the Greece (Meraki Mobile) eSIMs from Airalo (1 GB/7 days, 3 GB/30 days, 5 GB/30 daysmost popular with PTW readers & 10 GB/30 daysvery popular with PTW readers).

If you prefer unlimited data plans instead, get one of the Greece eSIMs from Holafly (unlimited/5 days, unlimited/10 days, unlimited/15 days, unlimited/20 days, unlimited/30 days, unlimited/60 days & unlimited/90 days).
