I hope someone can help me understand the cell phone/SIM card/pre-paid minutes! When I was down in January, I bought a cell phone with a Digicell SIM card, and put pre-paid minutes on it. On my trip in early March, I added another $30 or so of minutes and had a few minutes left when I returned home. I'll be back down on July 3 and I've started to worry (just a little!) that once my minutes expired (90 days?) so did my SIM card (thereby losing my Belize cell phone number). Is that correct or is it another 90 days after the minutes expired? If it is correct, is there another type of SIM card that has a longer "non-use" time before expiring?

Thanks for ANY clarification!

Hi Debbie,

If I understand how it works. Since so many phones are lost or stolen. If your number has had no activity for 90 days (including people calling you) the number is deemed invalid and will be then reused after a designated time period.
I think if you call you belize number every few months to say the number is still valid it will continue to work. You can always email BTL or Smart and see what they say they are online.
