      Question Cell Phone Usage in Trinidad/Tobago

      Hey everyone,

      you can get a sim card from any bmobile or digicel outlet/dealer. There are plenty around and all you have to do is walk with is some form of photo ID and $50 TT.

      your android phone should work fine here. Tmobile uses GSM, so no issues. We do not have 3G cell data in T&T.

      You might need to call Tmobile and request they unlock your phone. If you are out of contract, or bought your phone at full retail (no contract), they will more than likely unlock it for you to use in T&T. I know someone did this personally and it was no hassle; currently they are using bmobile on a Tmob Galaxy S, no issue.

      also bmobile has data @$2/megabyte. It makes little sense going for unlimited because we are limited to EDGE (2G) data speeds.

      Thanks BW!

      I am actually in a contract with TMobile. Will that make a difference??

      So do you recommend I unlock my phone when I get to TT? I was hoping to get it done before I leave to make sure it will work without issue.

      A few other questions if that's okay:

      Should I get a Bmobile or Digicel SIM card?

      If I were to decide to get my SIM card here in NYC, do you know anywhere in Brooklyn that might sell it?

      Can I top-up my phone as usual?

      if you are under contract, tmobile is less likely to unlock your phone (really depends on them, and how long you were a customer). No harm in calling them and finding out. They took less than a day to deliver unlock codes/instructions for me.

      You should definitely do the unlock while up there. Theres no reason to wait till you are here to go about doing that.

      I dont know where in brooklyn sells t&t sim cards. I would just check the bmobile or digicel booth in the airport (right after immigration before customs), or any other dealer around. I bought a prepaid bmobile sim card a few weeks ago and it was literally a 10 minute process, just need $50tt and a photo id.

      You top up according to the instructions on the top up card/chit. Usually that means dialing *135*code# and pressing dial from your phone.

      I would recommend bmobile because they have better prepaid data rates. But its a toss up.
