Students usually choose to buy cell phones as they are inexpensive and readily available. Digicel and FLOW offer great deals on new phones and pre-paid minutes. At the beginning of each semester the two phone companies station booths on campus so you can compare deals. You can also visit FLOW or Digicel at Spiceland Mall. FLOW is prefered by students because FLOW to FLOW calls are free.
FLOW offers both post-paid and pre-paid GSM services. The following provides information on the GSM service:
Post-paid Service: The SGU Affinity Mobile GSM post-paid plan exclusively for Students and Staff with 100 bundled on net minutes, 100 anywhere minutes, unlimited closed user group and text messages and 2 Gbps of data monthly with or without a handset. Features such as call waiting, caller ID, and 3-way calling are free with the plans. A refundable deposit is required for postpaid service.
Pre-paid Service: With prepaid service there is no deposit, no monthly charge, and no monthly bill. Top Up cards can be purchased in many denominations on campus and at many locations across the Island—just look for the green mobile “Top Up Here” signs. Call waiting and caller ID features are free with pre-paid service. To check your pre-paid balance, simply dial *3733 and select option 2.
Mobile Phones: FLOW sells a wide range of GSM mobile phones from top manufacturers such as Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, and Samsung. Mobile phones are instantly activated for post-paid or pre-paid service upon purchase.

You can bring your own mobile phone to Grenada. For your mobile phone to work on FLOW’s network, the frequency must be 850Hz and it must be a GSM mobile phone. Once you have your mobile phone, you can sign up for GSM service and purchase a SIM Card Start-Up Kit from FLOW for EC $25.
