The prepaid SIM card for Antigua and Barbuda is a trouble-free option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Antigua and Barbuda cell phone while you’re in Antigua and Barbuda at a better rate than you’d pay for a cell phone rental in the country. The SIM chip, combined with an unlocked GSM World cell phone, helps you keep the lines of communication open without being burdened by high international roaming surcharges applicable when you use your “home” SIM card abroad. You’ll also enjoy the benefit of 25 EC ($9 USD) of starter airtime credit, SMS text messaging, voicemail, a local cell phone number in Antigua and Barbuda, and free incoming calls. What’s more, you’ll have 24 hour a day access to customer service simply by dialing 100 from your Antigua and Barbuda cellular phone. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.

Your Antigua and Barbuda SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 900 and 1800 frequencies. If you do not have your own international cell phone, we have several models available for your consideration.
