Text Messaging

How do I send a text message to another Digicel number?

It's easy! Simply compose your text message and either send it to the Digicel number or find the number in your phonebook.

What's the longest Text Message that I can send and receive?

160 Characters long - and this includes spaces and punctuation! Some handsets allow you to type messages over 160 characters. In this case, the message will be broken up & sent as separate messages of up to 160 characters each and you will be charged for each text message.

What if someone tries to send me a text message and my phone is either turned-off or out of coverage?

The message will be stored for 8 days. If, after this time, you have still not accessed the message, it will be deleted. If the sender has their delivery notification turned on, they will receive a message to this effect.

Who can I receive text messages from?

You can receive a Text message from other Digicel customers or from GSM customers from many international networks.
