You can easily buy an AFRICAN SIM.

To purchase an African SIM card, you only need your passport.

AFRICAN TELEPHONE COMPANIES.

Among the telephone companions in Africa the best known are AIRTEL and VODACOM. On my trip I bought an AIRTEL card.

WHERE TO BUY A TELEPHONE CARD IN AFRICA?

To buy an African phone card, just go to any of the many shops scattered along the road with the AIRTEL or VODACOM sign or ask the many guys under a beach umbrella to meet along the road with the phone company’s signs.

HOW MUCH AN AFRICAN SIM ?

The card that you buy AIRTEL or VODACOM costs about € 2, or 3000THZ. The card has no credit so you must also buy a top-up of around € 10, or 20000THZ.

HOW TO ACTIVATE AN AIRTEL AFRICAN SIM?

Once the card is inserted, enter * 149 * 99 # to access the menu. You can choose different options including INTERNET, MINUTES, SMS etc. and then select the type of tariff plan to be activated, eg internet, monthly 20GB, weekly internet 5GB, 24h of calls, etc.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”155″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” onclick=”img_link_large”][vc_column_text]
