7.      Who is eligible to activate a Roam Easy Caribbean plan? 

All personal Prepaid customers. Corporate customers must activate a roaming plan for business.

 

8.      Do I need to activate the plan before I depart?

You don’t have to. You can activate your Roam Easy Caribbean plan at any time before or after you arrive in any of the eligible destinations.

.

9.      Is there a limit to the number of plans I can activate?

10.  Will my Plan auto-renew? 

No, you decide when you are ready to renew your Plan.

 

11.  How do I keep track of my Roam Easy data usage? 

We will send you reminders that look like this:

 

Message

Message 

100MB remaining 

You have 100MB roaming data remaining. Use your free 100MB MyDigicel app data to activate a new roaming plan via p.mydigicel.net or dial *153#

12.  Will my data rollover if I buy multiple roaming plans?

 

Yes, you get to keep your unused data once you buy another Roam Easy Caribbean plan. Rollover data will take the validity of the longer plan, however, you must activate the new Plan within 24 hours of expiry of the old one.

Please note that if you purchase a Roam Easy Caribbean and an International Roaming Plan, both data allotments will remain separately on your account.

 

13.  How do I continue to stay online after I’ve used up my roaming data?

You can choose to use data at the Pay-As-You-Go rate, or take the more affordable route of activating another Roam Easy Caribbean Plan.

Yes, your DigiLoan credit is good for activating any of those Plans.

 

15.  Can I benefit from the Roam Easy Caribbean plan in Jamaica? 

No, these Plans only work in Roam Easy Caribbean destinations.

 

16.  How do I get in touch with Customer Care while roaming? 

 

·       Dial 1876 380 7626(ROAM) for Customer Care. Calls will be billed at the in-plan rate of $24 per minute, or $34 per minute if you are not on a roaming plan.

·       You can also use the MyDigicel app and tap the Ruby icon to speak with an agent (use your bonus 100MB MyDigicel data). 

 

17.  How do I access voicemail while roaming? 

 

·       Dial 1876 380 0000 to access your voicemail. While roaming, whether in or out of a plan, receiving voicemail is free.

·       Listening to voicemail messages while roaming will be charged at the in-plan rate of $24 per minute, or $34 per minute if you are not on a roaming plan.

 

 

18.   Have the Roam Easy Caribbean Plans replaced the USA & Caribbean Roaming Bundles?

 

Yes. The new Roam Easy Caribbean Plans give your more data that enable you to live your best digital life, even while you’re away.

 

STANDARD ROAMING (Prepaid)

19.  What is standard roaming and how does it work? 


Standard Roaming rates, also known as Pay-As-You-Go or PayGo, apply when there is no active roaming plan on your account.
