This has probably been asked several times and answered but of course I could not find it. Is it better to buy a calling card in SP or in the states for calling back to the states.

US Calling cards do not work here. You must use BTL, unfortunately.

Calls to the US run around 80 cents Belize per minute to the US and apparently once you go over the 5 minute mark the cost drops to around 43 cents a minute. So it isn't terribly expensive to call the US.

With my experience with Verizon, I can't get/send text from SP but can at Int'l airport. Not very helpful I'm sure - just my experience.

You can use calling cards from Belize but only on special BTL phones. They are blue phones usually located near special resorts all over Belize. There are 2 in PG that I know of and muct be some on the island

TQ, I'm on Verizon and texting to/from US works for me on SP w/o an international plan, or at least it did 6 months ago........guess I'll find out next week if something has changed! Of course there were some annoying little surcharges that magically appeared on my next billing wink

i can txt with AT&T - it just costs a bit more w/o the int'l plan. call verizon and they'll tell you how much. it's still cheaper than calling, so we can txt our kids a couple of times a day.

i dont think i can send pics, tho.
