Re: Communications in the Caribean (cell phone)

There are two companies Lime And Digicell. I have Digicell but there is little to choose between them.

A basic payasyougo is $99 ec or about $36 us about 15c us a minute local 36c us to the USA/Canada/UK.

BUT it is local to the island you buy it in. It will work in the other islands but the roaming rates are high. Buy a SIM for each island [ about 10 us ] if you use your phone a lot.

Some people buy two phones and keep the same sim in one to keep the same phone no. in one and change the sim in the other for outgoing calls.
