Hi, my UK mobile is not working in Ecuador.I need to phone the UK and wondering if you can buy international prepaid phone cards and where?Thank you.
Not that I've ever seen. However, there are cabinas that let you make VOIP calls everywhere.
I recommend buying a chip in Claro or Movistar you can do in the Mall del Sol or San Marino Shopping, but to buy the chip you must present your passport.
Once you activate the chip on your phone you can recharge at any pharmacy Sana Sana or Fybeca from $ 3 and up so you can communicate with your family from Ecuador.
Buying a chip (SIM) will only work if your UK phone is unlocked and works here. Also, making international calls with a pre-pay SIM is very expensive.
If you have a Smartphone that will at least work with WiFi you can download Skype or something similar and use that.
Yes I agree with Skype. Put the app on your phone then buy Skype credit and you can use it like a regular phone when you are on wifi, it’s cheap.
