The Prepay Plus Plan is the best prepaid plan for most users. If you primarily intend to use your Thuraya phone in the ZONE E countries listed below, you may want to consider the NOVA Plus Plan.
When you activate a Thuraya Prepaid SIM Card on the Prepay Plus Plan, $10 worth of service is included. You must make your first call using the SIM Card within 6 months of the purchase date or it will be deactivated. You can purchase Thuraya Scratch Codes to reload your prepaid account online through our store.
Reload Vouchers: Prepaid vouchers (aka electronic Thuraya Scratch Codes) can be purchased online in 50, 160, 500, and 1000 unit denominations. After we process your order, the Scratch Code(s) will be sent to your email address. You can load the Scratch Codes directly from your Thuraya phone by dialing short code 150 and following the instructions when prompted.
Internet Access in GmPRS Mode: Thuraya prepaid plans support GmPRS packet data. This service can achieve internet data rates up to 60 kbps (download) and up to 15 kbps (upload).
Band 1 Calls
