    Cell Phones in Antigua

    Advertisements



    I will be attending Med 1 this September 2010. I currently have Verizon however I am planning on bringing an unlocked iphone on the island. I was wondering if anyone has used Digicel SIM cards? If not, whats the cheapest option?

    Your options are DigiCel and Lime (formerly B-mobil). When I was on the island, Lime was the cheaper and better choice because from time to time they offered what is called a "double bubble". This is when you add a certain amount to your prepaid number and they match it. Having an iPhone on the island will work fine, but data on the island is almost non existent. I think there is a plan for BlackBerry phones, but I'm not sure of the details.

    You can just google both DigiCel and Lime to see what prices work out best for you.

    Cell phones

    Both providers will be at registration, and they offer 1/2 off air time so it's best to buy your time upfront as it's good for the year. If you want a decent phone, I suggest buying an unlocked quad band off Ebay and bringing it along. Otherwise you can get a cheep one on site. Both services offer good coverage, and both have top up deals ever so often, however the top up deals have restrictions (ie: extra minutes good for 1 week, only good for cell to cell, etc..) I think your best bet is to put the extra time on at registration for half the price.
