Mobile phone....PAYG purchase or rental???

I've seen some other older posts from 2011 regarding this but it isn't upto date.

Is it possible to buy a cheap phone pay as you go in Jamaica or can we rent one?

Any advise or help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

@Sarah, it is possible to do either...... Gas stations have a packaged pay as you go lime phone you can purchase. A less expensive alternative would be to bring an open (not tied to a network) phone and buy a sim card and add credit as you go.....
