If you plan on visiting Bangladesh any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Bangladesh SIM card provides a simple, convenient, and affordable way for any traveler to make and receive those all-important calls while abroad.
The prepaid SIM card for the Bangladesh is a trouble-free option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Bangladesh cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Bangladesh cell phone rental. 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 $10 USD of starter airtime credit, SMS text messaging, and a local phone number while in the Bangladesh. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.
Your Bangladesh SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 900 frequency. If you do not have your own international cell phone, we have several models available for your consideration. Please click here for more information.
The domestic calling rates are per minute for all outgoing calls within Bangladesh from your prepaid Bangladesh SIM card while you are in Bangladesh. All of your incoming calls, regardless of where they originate, are FREE.
All SMS messages are 2 Tk ($0.03 USD) each.
*Peak Hours: 6am – 12am
International phone calls from your world cell phone have never been easier with your prepaid local Bangladesh SIM card. All calling rates are per minute for international outgoing calls from your Bangladesh SIM card while you’re in Bangladesh.
Additional airtime credit is available through the purchase of airtime vouchers. These airtime vouchers are available in Bangladesh at local GrameenPhone authorized scratch card retail outlets or points of sale displaying the FlexiLOAD sign. Purchase any amount between 50 Tk to 10,000 Tk, from a retailer and the retailer will instantly reload your account from their mobile handset. After a successful reload, you will receive a confirmation on your mobile phone with an SMS message.
Remember you do not need to purchase another SIM card when your airtime balance is depleted; you only need a recharge voucher! Your incoming calls are always free even when you run out of airtime.
Your local Bangladesh SIM card has an initial validity period of 6 months. The validity of your local SIM card will be determined by the airtime denomination purchased. When you reload any amount from 300 Tk to 599 Tk you will receive 6 months validity. However, if you reload any amount from 600 Tk to 10,000 Tk you will receive 1 year validity. If no additional airtime is loaded within 30 days after the validity period, the Bangladesh SIM card will expire, the phone number will be recycled and any remaining airtime credit will be forfeit.
