Does anyone know if an unlocked GSM phone will work in Belize?

Thanks,

Yes they will. The SIMs are fairly inexpensive also.

1900 band phones only. A tri or quad band GSM phone will work here. $25US for a BTL sim. Phone cards make great little souveniers.

what are the charges after you purchase a BZE sim card?

DB,
Check with your service provider and see if they have a roaming agreement with Belize (BTbloodyL).
US T-Mobile and a few others work fine here. Be aware of the costs though.
...or go to a cell phone store anywhere is the States (or do it yourself on the internet) and have your phone unlocked. This will not affect your existing service. They only lock it (sucks) because of agreements re. marketing support between the providers and the phone manufacturers.
