The phone cards come in denominations of 10 and 20 convertible Cuban pesos and are sold in hotels, conference centres, ETECSA’s offices and the telephone booths themselves. Or you can make your international calls from your hotel.

Mobile Telephones:

Roaming agreements exist with most international mobile phone companies. If your phone has GSM working in the 900 MHz band (Standard European) or TDMA (American standard), in the 800 mHz band, you may be able to use your own phone in Cuba. You may need to activate your phone with a local carrier; C_COM for GSM or CUBACEL for TDMA. You can also rent a cell phone in Cuba.
