Prepaid sim card

Beitragvon doo » Mi Jan 16, 2008 13:14

Hi all,

Can anyone here recommend me a network which sells prepaid sim card? I will be staying at Port Louis. Are there any phone stores there where I can check out?

Thanks in advance!

There are 2 network operators, Cellplus and Emtel. You can buy prepaid SIM cards in pretty much any convenience store. The choice will depend on which promotion the operator is running at the time you decide to purchase :wink)

Hi doo,
the two networks I can recommend you are CELLPLUS or EMTEL, you can buy the cards in almost every shop or supermarket and it works perfectly.
The costs are way cheaper than your foreign sim cards.....

Yes my thoughts exactly about the costs! Thanks for that. Btw, would you happen to know if there are any such stores around Port Louis area? I will be staying at Labourdonnais Hotel. Thanks again.

Hi all

I'm staying at the Labourdonnais this Thursday and Friday.

I have an unlocked iPhone and want to buy a sim card and then add a data package as the Internet charge in the Hotel is way too high. I know there is limited wifi at Caudan Waterfront but I won't be outside all of the time.

I see from previous posts there is a phone shop on the waterfront. Will they sell me a sim card? Do I then need to go to the Emtel shop to add a data package?

Any detailed help available - many thanks!

Colin
