When life gives you LIME…make LIMEade

Between Digicel and LIME, Jamaica’s two cellular phone providers are systematically letting us down. While this post focuses on LIME–Digi is no better, i have several friends who left Digicel and fled to LIME only to discover that they’d jumped out of the frying pan into the fire–

Rumour has it that LIME’s woes are temporary due to a major upgrade they’re in the middle of. But WTH at least give your customers rebates for the last few months when service has been so spotty! Anyway, thank the various gods for social media where we can vent and let non-performing corporations know exactly how we feel…


    Why is #LIMEJamaica charging me for mobile data when for the past few weeks their service hardly works??? Internet & data over WIFI only WTH
    Anywhere in KGN I’ve been recently … from Manor Park to Downtown to Port Royal, #LIMEJamaica data DOES NOT (cont)  http://tl.gd/n_1s6k1t0 
    Here’s the full text of Sandor’s tweet: Anywhere in KGN I’ve been recently … from Manor Park to Downtown to Port Royal, #LIMEJamaica data DOES NOT WORK! What’s the point, what are we paying for???
    The only place it barely works is in New Kingston!
    Having to use Skype to make local calls….#LIMEFAIL
    @CindysDaughter EVERY SINGLE RAHTID DAY! No call goes through on the first second or third try! #LIMEWOES
    @CindysDaughter I’ve given up complaining! And the only reason I’m still a customer is they’re cheaper, but maybe cos calls dont get thru!

  1. hahahaha. Like lime clear all ah mi accumulated credit, sen mi tex stating dat mi nuh have nuh credit. Gimmi ah break. If you’re discontinuing my service, then your discontinuing my service, but as long as I am on the credit, leff mi dyam credit alone. Duplicitous!

  2. See this is a problem yall cause on your self. Too many people jerking themselves off on social media clogging up the already sucky networks. Instagraming and netflixing things. Both of them have been bad from long time. I knew they were bad in 2004 when internet on your cellphone was a joke. Hey do what you can, maybe it all this chatter will solve something eventually.

  3. Hail Annie Paul, is this the reason I can’t get you..not even on WhatsApp? I sent you messages trying to confirm our link up and was about to cuss you off for not answering. Should I direct it to LIME?
