Curve is made smart by the built-in Vodafone Smart SIM. Unlike Bluetooth-only trackers, which are great for finding things very close by like your keys or TV remote, their limited range means most of the time they can’t be too far from your phone. This smart SIM card connects to the internet across our global network, so your phone could be far away from it and still get updates.​


Vodafone Smart SIM also known as V-Sim by Vodafone. Smart SIM works in over 90 countries please see FAQs for more information. Connectivity subscription required. Subject to Vodafone network coverage and GPS signal.
