  How It Works
 Do You Have an Unlocked GSM Phone?

Why rent a cell phone for Costa Rica at the airport if you can get a Costa Rican cell phone in the US before you even leave for your trip.  Cell phone rentals can get expensive and now that phones have become so inexpensive, you will want to purchase your own unlocked GSM phone for traveling overseas.

To use this service, you will need an unlocked GSM cell phone with the correct band.  The 1800 MHz frequency is used in Costa Rica.  If you purchased your GSM cell phone from a carrier it may be SIM-locked which means only SIM cards from that specific carrier can be used in your phone.

When you purchase our SIM card you will also have the option to purchase a Siemens Tri-Band World Phone for only $99, a special promotional rate only available to customers who purchase this SIM card.  If you are unsure if your current phone will work with this SIM card, please either call us at 1-800-872-7626 (or from overseas at 1-703-620-0879) or consider purchasing the Siemens Tri-Band World Phone to use with our SIM card.

This SIM for Costa Rica is the perfect SIM for your travels throughout Costa Rica, whether you are visiting Costa Rica to explore the beach, the rainforest, or even if you are a medical tourist traveling to Costa Rica to save money on medical treatments. Costa Rica is fast becoming one of the most popular spots in the world for medical tourism with over 20,000 Americans flocking to Costa Rica for medical treatment.



Our SmartRoam SIM Card for Costa Rica debits at only 0.24 Euro a minute for both outgoing calls locally within Costa Rica and calls back to the US.  With our SmartRoam SIM Card for Costa Rica, all incoming calls debit at 10 Eurocents (but the caller pays international LD to Europe).  The SmartRoam SIM Card for Costa Rica normally costs $59.99 but is available now at a discount.  Unlike many country specific SIM cards, this SIM card only needs to be reloaded once every 9 months to remain active.  When it is time to reload you can simply call us and we will add the reload directly to your account.  To purchase reloads for your SIM card, please call our reload center at 1-703-620-0879 (or from your mobile at +1 703-620-0879) or at 1-800-872-7626 from within the US.
  Service Life
 Your airtime can be used for 9 months from your last recharge or initial activation.  If airtime credit is not added during the 12th month, the SIM card will be de-activated and the phone number will be recycled.  To avoid this, and have the SIM card ready for your next trip, simply purchase a small reload or pass the SIM card on to a friend.
  International Capability
 The SmartRoam SIM Card for Costa Rica presented here is actually an international roaming SIM card.  This means it can be used to make and receive calls in over 140 countries, including the US and Canada.  You will experience excellent coverage and be able to make inexpensive calls back to the US.

  Operating Instructions
 Making calls using your SIM card

To make a call, simply dial a "Plus" (+) symbol, the country code, the phone number and then press the "Send" or "Yes" key.

Instead of putting the phone to your ear immediately, wait about two seconds and the phone will ring back, alerting you to answer the phone.  Press the "Send" or "Yes" key and you will hear your call go through.

Just dial a Plus (+) symbol, the country code, the city code, and then the phone number (country code is "1" for the US) and the "Send" or "Yes" key to reach any number.

In these few seconds, the SIM card calls you back.  This allows you to control the calling rate per minute and save.

Please Note:  When calling from the US to your SIM card's international number, callers will have to dial "011" followed by your number.  We also offer a US based number.  For more information,

Text messages (SMS) - incoming SMS messages are always FREE

The SmartRoam SIM Card for Costa Rica can send and receive text messages both within Costa Rica and back to most US carriers.  Outbound Texts debit at 45 Eurocents each. You will not be able to send SMS messages once your available credit falls below 3 Euros.  If your phone requires a message center number, please call us at 1-800-872-7626 x0 for instructions.


Simply dial "121" then press the "Send" or "Yes" key to listen to messages received.  Follow the voice instructions to change your voice mail settings.

Adding credit/Purchasing reloads

Additional minutes can be added to your SIM card with a simple phone call. The SmartFree SIM Card for Costa Rica only needs to be reloaded once every 9 months to remain active.  When it is time to reload you can simply call us and we will add the reload directly to your account. To purchase reloads for your SIM please call our reload center at 1-703-620-0879 (or from your mobile at +1 703-620-0879) or at 1-800-872-7626 from within the US.
