Cell Phone & Service


CELL PHONES AND CELLULAR SERVICE IN ECUADOR

Cellular phones can be purchased at numerous cellular stores such as CLARO and MOVISTAR outlets. However, there are many small kiosk stores/locations on the sidewalks throughout Manta. Most deals on cell phones will be at the small kiosk stores located on most of the main streets/calle and avenues/avenida around Manta. An average cost for a basic cell phone (which is fine here) might be around $40 - $50.00 unless you are interested in a PDA cell phone.

You can purchase annual plans (contracts) or just purchase minutes. Purchasing minutes on an as need basis is a norm for visitors and/or expats living here. MUST have your Cedula/Residency

There are a few cellular services in Ecuador. Two most prominent services are "CLARO & MOVISTAR". I will say most have CLARO but MOVISTAR is a close second. You can call an individual using either service. Check around and see what is best for you.

NOTE: Banks prohibit the use of cell phone while conducting business inside. The use of a cell phone while driving is also prohibited.
