If your system is like the European system and is ETACS you can use your phone on St. Martin. We live in Italy and have no problems using our phone on the island. Many American's did have problems with their cell phones in St. Martin, as the system was not compatable. Check with your provider before leaving home..

I rented a phone down there from Sharon Harris. It was 30 bucks for the week and had time on the phone (about 30 minutes). You can buy more time at the gas stations to put on the phone. It is set up like a trac fone. It was very easy to use. Her email is queenofsxm2000@yahoo.com. She was very easy to work with.
