Re: Cell phone usage for USA and "maybe" Caribbean

We bought a SIM thru "BaTelCo" (Bahamas Telephone Company) for $15 to use with our unlocked GSM phone. You could then buy pay as you go minutes for 50 cents or less to the USA, cheaper in-island. The same phone worked in Aruba on the same kind of contract, $15 for the SIM card with a local phone number, and then the per-minute rate was pretty inexpensive depending on how much you bought (60 minutes, the price per minute was more expensive than 120 minutes, etc). We also "trained" our USA contacts to use email to communicate with us - that was the best savings.
