To get connected again, you will be required to purchase another SIM card.  The 5-month period starts the day you arrive in Brazil and start using your GSM cell phone.


      Your Brazil mobile phone number is printed on the reverse side of your SIM card packaging and starts with (21)8XXX-XXXX…When you arrive in Brazil:

  • Be sure that battery is charged

  • Insert the Brazil SIM chip into the cellular phone

  • Turn on the phone and make sure that your GSM phone is set to the 1800 frequency (only required on some older Motorola phones)    
  • Enter the PIN code (only if your phone asks for a PIN code) and start calling

    To make international calls from your Brazil cell phone, simply dial 00, followed by 41 and the country code (1 for the US) and phone number.

        Your SIM card comes with starter airtime that is included either on your SIM card or a voucher that looks like a cash register receipt. If you receive your starter airtime as a separate voucher the airtime will need to be added following the instructions below before you will be able to use your SIM card. Additional credit is available through the purchase of airtime vouchers (also called reload codes not another SIM card, in Brazil).  These airtime vouchers are available in 6 denominations: R5, R15, R25, R35, R50 and R100.  To add these vouchers from your phone dial *222 and follow the instructions.

    Simply scratch off the grey protective layer to reveal your voucher code.  When punched into the keypad of your international cell phone, the voucher code will credit your SIM card the respective denomination you purchased.

    Adding Airtime

        Airtime vouchers are available locally, in Brazil, at local convenience stores, TIM shops and authorized dealers. Purchase an airtime recharge card (available in 6 denominators: R5, R15, R25, R35, R50 and R100) available locally in Brazil, at local convenience stores, TIM shops and authorized dealers.
