A Prepaid Russia SIM card requires a GSM phone with a frequency of 900 MHz and/or 1800 MHz. These are the frequencies used worldwide, with the exception of the United States, Canada and several South American countries.
Therefore, if you live outside of the USA, Canada and South America, you only need to purchase a prepaid Russia SIM card.
If you live within the United States or Canada, cell phones are often not GSM and have different frequency bands (850 MHz & 1900 MHz). Therefore, if you do not have a cell phone you use overseas, you may be interested in the SIM & Cell Phone package for Russia.
