You can purchase a sim card at any Digicel store - there are a few in downtown Ochi, not sure where you are staying -

The minutes you add after you get the chip - You have to buy credit, then you enter a code on your phone to subscribe -

I think it's *136# for the BBerry internet - you can choose from 7 day, 15 day, or 30 day service -

Same with the international calls - you need 1000 credit on your phone to add the international calling

You can purchase a digicell sim from Jamaica National Bank (if you have one in your area) and the credit can be purchased online from ezetop.com.

Alternatively, if you know anyone going to JA let them purchase one for you.

I used my blackberry - I purchased international plan from my provider.

Thanks a lot for this valuable info.

I will be staying at Riu Ocho Rios next month for a week, I thought they would have a Digicel Store @ the airport, which would have made perfect sense, but no.

I'll look for one in downtown Ochi.

Thx again.

There used to be a Digicel Kiosk, but it's been closed a long time - If you are doing a private transfer from the airport, you can ask the driver to stop - you will pass a few Digicel stores on the way to the Riu -

In Ochi, there is one on Main St, just past the Casino, on the same side of the street.

Remember to take your passport when buying sim card - they now require ID,
