Here is the link: http://www.gosim.com/index.php?page=3725_wpp You will be able to use it in the countries stated in your email apart from Zimbabwe, as we do not have any roaming partners there yet.

The SIMs we provide expire only after 18 months of non activity, The number provided is an Estonian based number beginning with +372, so people calling you will have to check how much they will be charge for making an International phone call.
