I moved to Antigua 8 years ago I had my iPhone unlocked here and bought a chip for a local provider. Now it was a iPhone 3 so maybe the newer ones can't be unlocked. But I was told by a US provider that a 3 can't be unlocked. Wrong. Or just by a phone in one of the local providers stores. Q100-Q8,000 purchase price normally a chip is included with anywhere from Q100 -Q1,000 balance free.

Bajasur, are there several phones available to purchase in Guate? How about smartphones? Any particular stores or any phone store? Thanks

Smart phones are about all you see. Apple, Samsung, L&G, etc. The providers, Claro, Tigo and Moviestar stores all sell smart phones, as well as different shops in Antigua and the Q100-Q150 phones. If someone is here for a couple of weeks I'd buy one of the cheap ones.
