Ecuador Cell Phone Solution

This may be an Ecuador cell phone solution.

Last week we shared the following note:

Jean Marie Butterlin, head of Ecuador Living’s Ateam sent a note that you need to know about Ecuador’s cell phone service: 

In a continuing attempt to fight drug trafficking, the government has enacted a new regulation asking the mobile phone companies to

block their Pay&Go number unless you enter a valid cedula number and its issuance date.

Until now any expat that was on any type of visa could buy a Pay&Go card and enjoy his local phone….not anymore; I recommend that people coming to Ecuador and needing a cell phone come with their US or Canadian phone to Ecuador.  Jean Marie
