If you plan on visiting Jamaica any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Jamaica 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 Jamaica is a practical option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Jamaica cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Jamaica cell phone rental. It’s also a trouble-free ticket to using the same options that the Jamaicans themselves use—the local Jamaican cell phone system. 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 likewise enjoy the benefit of SMS text messaging, GRPS, voicemail, a local cell phone number in Jamaica, and FREE incoming calls. The prepaid feature gives you complete control over your costs, and with our low calling rates and per second billing plan, having a cell phone in Jamaica is affordable for all. Access to customer service from your Jamaica cellular phone is available 24 hour a day, so you’ll always have assistance with any unexpected issues or questions about your calls. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.

Your Jamaica 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.

Adding Airtime

Additional airtime credit is available through the purchase of airtime vouchers, also called top up cards. These Airtime vouchers are available throughout Jamaica at local tabac shops, convenience stores and authorized bMobile dealers. Jamaica airtime vouchers are available in the following denominations:

  • $100 JD ($1.50 USD)
  • $200 JD ($3.00 USD)
  • $300 JD ($4.50 USD)
  • $500 JD ($7.50 USD)

To add the voucher, simply scratch off the gray protective layer to reveal your 13 digit voucher code. Dial *121* followed by the 13 digit voucher code and press [SEND]. When typed into the keypad of your international cell phone, the voucher will credit your SIM card with the respective Jamaica dollar denomination you purchased.

To check the remaining balance of your Jamaica SIM card, simply dial *120# and press [SEND]

Remember you do not need to purchase another Jamaica SIM card when your airtime balance is depleted; you only need a Jamaica recharge voucher! Your incoming calls are always completely free, even when you run out of airtime.

Service Life

If you do not top-up your Jamaica SIM card balance within 3 months of your initial use, your Jamaica SIM card and phone number will be recycled and any remaining airtime will be forfeit. Every time you add airtime to your Jamaica SIM card, the validity will be extended for 14, 21, 28 days or 42 days, depending on the denomination of your top up card. You have 60 days in which to recharge your Jamaica bMobile SIM after the expiration of each voucher. After this, you will be able to receive calls with your Jamaica SIM card but will need to add airtime in order to make an outgoing call. If your Jamaica SIM card remains dormant for an additional 60 days, your account will automatically be recycled and any remaining airtime credit on your SIM card will be forfeit.
