If you live in the Netherlands for a more extended period, you might want to get a Dutch phone number. There are multiple phone providers in the Netherlands where you can usually choose from a prepaid card or a paid contract. If you frequently call abroad, it might be worthwhile to pick a contract. You can either go for a Sim Only contract (if you already have a mobile device where you can put in your new sim card) or decide to sign a contract where you’ll receive a phone. Usually, the second option is more expensive, because you will pay off your mobile phone monthly.
