Cell phones

Cuba use the technology TDMA and GSM, but not in all areas. TDMA is the standard US frequency used in Cuba and, is nationwide. For those with GSM phones on the frequencies of 1900 and 900 there is local coverage in both Havana and Varadero only.

If your phone is duel band GSM (1900 and 900) then you will simply need to order the chip from us. If your phone is the TDMA or multi-band including TDMA then, it will need to be programmed upon your arrival. Reprogramming is sometimes not possible because some phones are blocked by the supplier to there own network.
