Jamaica Prepaid SIM Card

On a visit to Jamaica, you have become increasingly concerned that your alcohol consumption has grown drastically, what with the easy flow of Jamaican rum.

You realize that without the mature advice of your older friend Steve, you have become a raging alcoholic.

Returning to the path of righteousness, you give good ol' Steve a call.

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Jamaica or back home, prepaid SIM cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates. Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid Jamaica SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming costs.

What our partner Telestial says

A prepaid Jamaica SIM card with an international cell phone is the most convenient and economical solution for staying in touch while you travel in Jamaica. All incoming calls while you travel in Jamaica are FREE, regardless of where they originate. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone in Jamaica like you do at home. And unlike home, your Jamaica SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

The SIM Card for Jamaica includes:

  • US $1.57 ($100 JD) starter airtime credit
  • Free incoming calls
  • A local phone number while in Jamaica
  • Calls billed per second
  • Voicemail
  • SMS (text messaging)
  • GPRS - High Speed Data
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit charges

Please Note: Your Jamaica SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM 900 compatible international cell phone. If you do not have your own international cell phone, Telestial has several compatible models available for your review and consideration.

Global SIM Cards

Both Telestial and ekit offer a range of region specific and global SIM cards. Starting at just US$ 9 (with credit included!), these cards represent good value for travellers interested in having only one SIM card and phone number to cover multiple countries, whilst keeping roaming charges in check.
