International phone calls

Just curious, what services should I be looking at for making phone calls from Jamaica if necessary? My cell carrier does not have any service options down there.

I've only bought them once I get to a country. They are country specific as far as I know so you probably couldn't get one ahead of time. Just have your taxi driver take you by a mobile phone store ask him what the best coverage is where you will be. Or if its a nice hotel you are staying in the concierge may be able to get one for you.

You need an unlocked GSM phone..and buy a sim . If you take your cell to Jamaica and you turn it on, data roaming starts and you will be hammered.

You're going to Jamaica, but can't swing $14/day for internet?



Your frugality is commendable...

Just go to any Mexican grocery store before leaving. They have many options for calling to the farthest reaches of every imagineable ass-end sewer on the Earth.

Renting a Sat phone for safety reasons when hunting in extreme locations used to be a flat rate of 5 bucks a day with an up front deposit in case you died, lost it, or damaged the phone on the trip. Some of them are damn near indestructible, so you would have to do something pretty stupid to damage them.

They now have all kinds of phones and plans that work damn near anywhere you can see the sky.

I don't know about Jamaica, but when I travel to South Korea I rent a cell phone at the airport. It gives me unlimited local calls with a local number so people in Korea can reach me (I go for work and they need to be able to call me in during off hours) and people can call from the US (although there is an extra charge for incoming international calls). I typically don't use it to call the US because I can use Skype for much cheaper (I get free wi-fi due to membership status at Hilton hotels), but it is available if I need to away from the hotel. It is worth checking on. It costs less than $3 a day. They may have something like that available there too. I was there for 3 weeks last month, received a couple of short calls from the US, plus a lot of calls from within Korea, along with quite a few texts from my friend there (.20 a text) and my total bill was $45.

if this is a q, sorry

Skype is really cool.......you can even get a phone number from your home area code that will ring and take voicemail and allow you to answer calls in jamaica....FREE and none of your callers will even know youre in jamaica....just change your voicemail msg. on your regular phones to reach you on skype, if desired

http://www.skype.com/en/features/#calling

super cheap too, as long as you have wifi its all you really need for calls to and from home

if you absolutely must get a cellphone , just prepay it and only give the number out to emergency contacts....use skype for all non emergencies
