Whats the bst and cheapest phone service?

We have cingular and its a $1.69 per minute with 3 kid home that will be costly.

Any suggestions and how to get a better temp phone or service.

Thanks

Rent or buy a phone from Digicell - it will be much much cheaper!

When you get to Jamaica go to a digi cell store. Get a digicel chip to replace your sim card. that will cost $10US then you purchase a phone card for the amount of minute you want-start with a $500JA. THIS is the best and cheapest way to call home! I too have CINGULAR and do this all the time!

PEACE!

When you replace the sim card, do you keep the same phone # ??

Rent a cell phone and buy their phone cards. I did and it was great. Phone cards I thought were really inexpensive. The phone ran me about $40US deposit; $6US per day and I believe the card I bought was $4US for 250 minutes or something like that. Called home with no problem.

MKOV: From what I've heard the cheapest way to go is to buy a $5 calling card from the gift shop and use the pay phones in the lobby area. When I called Verizon to see if I could use my cell phone there it was 0.69cents a minute plus any connection fees for the land lines in Jamaica. Hope this helps!!

when you replace the sim card you get a local #. If you return to Jamaica within 5-7 months you can use it again-if not give it to somone when you leave! Truly this is the way to go!

PEACE!
