Bahamas sim card(s)

I have a pair of Bahamas sim cards, just returned and didn't burn all the minutes. Both have some data left, one goes out on May 1, the other goes out May 12. Both still have around $30 each remaining for minutes which don't expire until June(???). I won't use them, so free for the taking. I'm on the New River docks right by the 3rd Av bridge S side. Be here till about the 30th or May 1, depending.

I canít make it to pick up your SIM card, but Iím trying to order one from Mr Sim Card for our trip coming up in May. Canít really figure out what to order for my iPhone. Staying about a month in the Bahamas if all goes to plan.

Did you pre order your card or just get it when you arrived in the Bahamas?

The SIM cards were from last year, a bit late now!
We check in at Bimini, there's a BTC store there, pretty easy to get set up. Make sure your phone isn't locked to your US provider. iPhones older than 7 don't use the LTE band BTC uses, so may not get LTE. I'm in the Bahamas now, my (unlocked) iPhone 7 works great, phone sits in Wilson "Sleek" amp cradle, I connect to the personal hotspot with my bullet & have Internet for everything on board. Good coverage. I'm presently offshore & connected.

Oh! Too funny. Didnít realize the date was 2018.

Glad the trip is going well! Thanks for all the info.

Just realized my old unlocked iPhone is a 5s. It worked two years ago in the Bahamas but maybe not now?
