These numbers can be subsequently recharged with a prepaid card starting at only JOD1. Temporary “throw away” phones can be bought at many mobile phone shops across the country for around JOD20-30, but a Jordanian must buy the phone before possession can be transferred to you. There’s working 3G internet access in most tourist areas and you can purchase it with a prepaid SIM for JOD10. Make sure you have your phone setup by the seller because the process of enabling the 3G is not automatic; It requires a walk through an arabic message registration which takes a few minutes before 3G can be used.
