Mobile Phone in Marrakech

Does anyone know if Morocco is still only on the 900GSM frequency or have they rolled out into 1800 or 1900 as well.

I'd like to have my phone with me for emergencies, but won't bother if it's useless.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

I don't know much about frequencies. What I know, however, is that if you bring your phone over here and use for local communications, it's very expensive. the local call is billed as international. Many tousits however are making long distance calls on their mobiles. SO I don't think you're going to have problems.

For those who plan to stay in Morocco a bit longer, they usually buy a cheap mobile phone( under 30 dollars) for local and national calls

Hope the information is useful

regards

I do not know what frequency it is but i do know my phone worked there.

I do agree at cost.

but if your phone is sim unlocked you can get a very cheep sim card there

under 10 Euro

and use that to receive calls.
