international calling cards

Where can I buy an international calling card to call from St Maarten to the US in 2 weeks? I'm looking for one that is not too expensive as I will be using a good amount of minutes, which is why I do not want to use a cell phone. Any recommendations?

Rent a cell phone from Sharon. We did to keep in touch with our son at home. It also worked all over the island.

Is .32/minute the cheapest rate? Plus the $15 to rent the phone? Or could I find a prepaid calling card cheaper?

Problem with some calling cards is that they are hard to use in some phones. Renting a phone is far easier and cheaper in the long run.

I would only need to use a calling card from the Atrium's phone in our room. I will try to check with them and see what they say.

We had a wierd experience in Mexico using an international calling card from our hotel room, so do check that out with the Atrium first.

Rent a cell from Sharon, we have done it for years and it is the way to go. Vakshuner gave you her web site. You will not be sorry!

We totally agree with using Sharon - worked out great for us, plus incoming calls from the US are free (charge for the US phone), but Sharon will give very clear instructions on calling from the US. You'll have your own number that those from home can reach you at any time.

Does anybody know of an international calling card I can let my fiance use to call me from the US to the St. Maarten cell phone I rent?? I feel like .38/min is a little expensive if I called him from the cell phone.
