How to recharge a Cubacel number?

With BOSS Revolution, you can recharge any Cuban phone instantly and from almost anywhere in the world. You can also recharge mobile data, not just call time.

  1. Create an account by downloading the BOSS Revolution Calling App (app store here) or using the BOSS Revolution website. You’ll need to provide your phone number and some personal details to complete the process.
  2. Choose the amount of CUP you want to send. Ensure you meet the minimum CUP amount for any promotion so your loved ones can get the bonuses. Also, consider splitting your top-ups for maximum benefits. For example, if the minimum top-up amount is 500 CUP and you want to send 1500 CUP – splitting your transaction into three separate deliveries should triple the benefits of Cubacel bonuses.
  3. Enter the Cuban number that you’d like to top up. Note that you can top up friends, family, or even your phone.
  4. Enjoy connecting and chatting with the people you hold dear. With BOSS Revolution, top-ups typically arrive instantly, and bonuses apply within 24 hours.

Cubacel plans

Cubacel released new plans last year. Starting from July 19, 2021, users will receive more MB for all networks (including LTE), more national SMS/text and minutes, and a national navigation bonus of 300 MB.

Here’s how to get the plans.

  • For regular or standard plans: You don't have to do anything new to get the plans. Just do a Cubacel recharge as usual and tell your recipient to choose their preferred plan once top up is received – by dialing *133# and selecting option 5.
  • For the LTE-specific plan: LTE increased from 14 GB to 16 GB, and the price dropped to 950 CUP. People in Cuba should dial *133# and choose option 4 to get LTE packages.

All plans are valid for 30 days from the time services activate. Buying a combined plan will add any previously applied accumulated balance to the corresponding plan balance for a new total.

Where to find promotions

You can find Cubacel and other recharge promotions from the BOSS Revolution website, mobile app, or through BOSS push notifications and emails.

  2. Download the corresponding app
  3. Select the amount you want to send
  4. Enter the email address of the recipient Nauta account
  5. Pick and add your payment method

After purchase, the recipient should receive the Nauta recharge instantly. However, keep in mind that the steps shared here are general, and the process may be slightly different with some providers.

Two commonly used companies for Nauta recharges are Ding and RecargasACuba. Ding supports 150 countries and also lets you send mobile top-ups to friends and family. RecargasaCuba is similar to Ding because it also supports phone recharges to Cuba.
