Don't think it was for lunch. They were moving furniture out. Something about an odor in the place. Maybe they returned. I don't know. This was just a couple weeks ago. I went down to Telcell.

I have been using Chippie's TopUp service for years and never knew there was a way to confirm the expiration date. Tried it this morning and it worked just fine. Thanks for the info.

Joe, Thank-you for the link.
I saved it, since I will be buying the sim on our next trip.

Unless something's changed in the past couple of weeks, you can't actually purchase more time for your topup card on the website. You have to go to the UTS store or the Mailbox in SXM to do that. Tim just posted that the UTS store near IZI has closed; does anyone know if there's another one on the island?

What you can do on the website is add time to your phone from your card, which you have to do every 90 days to keep your sim card, and therefore your phone number, active.

Another option is the Top Up Card, which I believe you can only get from Sharon. Allows you to add $ to your phone via a web portal.

There are UTS stores in Philipsburg, Marigot and I believe the one in Cole Bay is still open.

Because nobody mentioned it, if you want a French phone number, you can purchase a SIM from Dauphin Telecom in Marigot. Since we spend almost all of our time on the French side, it is easier to make calls with it. And I do not have to add funds to my telephone account when I am not on the island and we're only on the island once a year.

The Top Up card is what I have, and I do add money to my phone from that. I thought that I could load more money onto that at a UTS store or at the Mailbox. Am I wrong about that, Elaine?

The UTS store in Philipsburg is open. It is located on Codville Webster Road. The Philipsburg location is open Mon-Fri 8am to 4 pm. There is another UTS store in Marigot at 24 Rue de la République. I believe this store is open till 5:30 pm and does have Saturday hours as well. I'll know more next week when I'm there.

As far as the Cole Bay location, as of May 29th, UTS posted on their facebook page their locations that would be closed due to weather and they listed the Cole Bay location, but it had the same hours as the Philipsburg location only M-F 8am to 4 pm. I'll see next week if it is truly closed.
