I am looking for help either renting or purchasing a prepaid cell for use while we are in AC. As much as I hate a phone on vacation we have become friends with so many people it is hard to keep track of them and to be able to contact then during the day. Its hard to set up and remember parties bar schedules, etc. eek

It would probably be easier if there were a few less Belikins involved, but it would not be anywhere near as much fun! :rolleyes:

I hate to have to keep borrowing the hotels phone (even if Liz and Terry at Mata Rocks keep telling us its ok with them!).

Anyone have any ideas?

Not to be flip but Banana Beach has phones in every room! otherwise I think you can change out the sim card in your own cell phone upon arrival so that it can be used in Belize and then change it back when you are ready to leave - no idea what local cell phone calls cost

I have rented cell phones from www.worldcr.com
I had a great experience with them! Very reasonable as well! Good luck!

If you take an unlocked GSM phone that will work on 1900 mhz it will work. You can buy a digicel sim card with $10 usage for $25 US. Noone could ever tell me how the charge per minute was. We just call on the island and I used the $10 and bought another $20 refill card which gave $25 and I still have a lot left for next time. I have used a Nokia 8290 and a Sony Ericsson T 616 with no problems. I have only used on AC though not the mainland.
