BTC Bahamas - Current Issues (Data Plan Activation)
1. BTC has updated the Limitless data plan to properly reflect 15GB data. 2. BTC has launched Combo plans that include talk, text, data and international calls. 3. The plan activation process has changed to *203# . *205# no longer works.
There has been a recent issue in that the activation path ( *203# ) has been amended to include a request for a language preference. There are lots of customers in the Bahamas who need Creole and so the path was amended. The result is great for Creole speaking customers but it has impeded the USSD codes needed to activate data.
Please see below the current path you must use to activate a data plan.
