As a visitor to the US I could not get a contract phone so used payasyougo Net10 from Walmart and found it to be OK for my needs.
So I am to understand that if I have my GSM phone I might purchase when entering the Bahamas for example it will still work at the usual rates (maybe) but outgoing calls would be high with that phone so get another SIM through Lime or Digicell for outgoing calls?
