    Hi,

    is it difficult to get a SIM card with US number in India?
    Can you only buy them only or is it common to get them in a Telcom shop? How much more expensive then Indian SIMs are they?

    I am not talking about virtual numbers because they don't qualify for verification on Fb, Insta etc.

    I don't think you can get US SIM cards in India. Virtual/DID numbers from some services still work well.

    Get a texting application inside a mobile application and direct the phone number towards the country you are looking to develop interest within. Usually there isn't anything you can do to get a foreign SIM, just make sure you get a digital version in referenced comparison to something notably different.

    Are you just going to use the # for verification on social accounts? If so, I know that you can get a number and even choose the area code through TextNow. It worked fine for me when I was creating Gmail accounts and needed to verify via text or phone. Google voice is also still around and it will forward communications. The only thing is, in order to get a # you've got to have a forwarding phone to start. Then you can just delete it afterwards. You might need a US proxy in order to get a US #, I'm not quite sure.

    Just run a few searches. Some work for verification, some don't. Trial and error my friend :) Good Luck!

    Even if you get a US SIM in your country, it will cost you roaming charges in addition to SIM/Connection charges.

    However for verification purpose, we usually use premium telephone numbers from authentic sellers, we can get voicemail over email address, some offer text over email as well. Price per number ranges from $2.25 to $12 per number. You can keep these numbers for 3 days to 90 days.
