Why don't you offer a phone number with your travel SIMs?
The answer is that most travelers these days simply don't require a local phone number when travelling abroad they just want data!
By offering data only, we lower our cost, which in turn means that you can access the benefits of our highly competitive data rates, with the convenience of being able to travel from country to country without having to purchase new SIM Cards, continually search for WiFi or the hassle of swapping SIMs each time you wish to check your messages on your home SIM.
We do understand that it is handy to be able to make a the odd call when travelling abroad, or in the case of an emergency.
