Stay connected with your family and friends while traveling? TelEm has you covered with Mobile roaming around the globe. The Caribbean, North America, Europe, South America and much more!
Never turn roaming off again, whether on a Prepaid or Postpaid mobile plan. You can talk and text easily while abroad with our low roaming rates.

Mobile Prepaid & Postpaid Roaming

With our new low rates, you can easily and affordably stay connected with any of our TelEm Prepaid or Postpaid plans.  Whether you are traveling for pleasure or business you can automatically continue using your mobile phone service internationally as you no longer need to request roaming services. 

With a TelEm Prepaid number you can easily roam while traveling, as there are no unexpected invoices or extra charges. In order to make calls and use your data services make sure you have enough Prepaid credit on your account. When making and receiving phone calls, while abroad, all incoming and outgoing calls will be charged to your available Prepaid balance.

Need to use DATA from your Prepaid mobile while abroad? No problem! Make sure to Top-Up before you depart! Your local data subscription is only available while in St. Maarten and is not available when roaming, therefore you need to have Prepaid credit. When roaming and your credit has been depleted, you can  Top-Up online here

What does international roaming include?

International roaming is when you connect to a mobile network in a country other than the one you reside. This includes making or receiving voice calls and text messages, or browsing the internet, sending, or receiving emails, etc. 

Is international roaming automatic?

Your mobile phone will not automatically work in every country. If you want to use your mobile phone while you’re away, before travelling, contact Customer Service to inquire if you will be able to use your mobile phone in your destination.  

Will I be charged for roaming if my phone is on?

You can accumulate roaming charges simply by leaving your phone turned on while travelling outside your home network – some apps automatically send and receive data even if it doesn’t look like your phone is doing anything. You can, however switch this off this feature. Please see our tips below on how to help manage your roaming charges.

When travelling to the USA, do I need to change any settings in my phone?
