Hi RP,
take a look on the web. You can unlock your Cingular GSM phone for very little money. You can get a Digicell prepaid SIM card from the link below, or many others. Im no expert, but it doesn't look like a big deal to get mobile phone service if that's what you need.

I have an MCI prepaid phone card (from Costco) and can call Belize from home for 39 cents per minute, and from Belize to home for 50 cents per minute. This assumes you have access to a phone there in your hotel or condo, or a pay phone. Maybe not the cheapest, but it sure is simple! I've used it 3x in planning for our trip, calling Belize from home.

Why not go to an internet cafe occasionally and use an internet phone? At Coconet I believe it's free, so long as you top up your Belikin every 15 minutes or so, which isn't such a hardship. Or there are a few other places that will give you free calls to the USA. You can arrange for messages to be passed to you.

you stated you need a phone incase something happens to them, so you should do what SIN suggested, very reasonable and if they call you it costs you nothing/no minutes. To dial to them I understand why it might be wise to go to the internet cafe as it is the cheapest way to call the states.

What if you wanted to pack your own phone with your own number on it and you didn't care that it cost you $4 a minute to answer it, if it was important. What if you wanted to call a friend and $4 a minute was no big deal and you wanted to do it from the comfort or your own room?
