I've seen posts about cell phones, sim cards and calling cards, but I'm wondering if I can't just make a collect call home to the U.S. from any phone on the island? I know it will be expensive, but for a 2 minute call just to make sure my 17-year-old hasn't wrecked the car and my dog hasn't exploded from being over fed by my mother, can't I just call collect? confused

Yes you can. I don't know about US but when I called Canada collect they were charged $5CDN per minute.

Having said that, why not just go to an Internet Cafe like Coconets and call for next to nothing.

Agreed use Coconets for the cost of a beer.

Otherwise you can use BTL cards for 99c bze using 10-10-199 as a prefix per minute which is more than the cost of a beer.

Plus you get a beer at Coconets. Steve is back thursday.

Buying a BTL calling card is definately cheaper, but if you still want to call collect, Dial 115 for a BTL Operator.

Anyone know calling rates per min from coconet to canada?

Had no idea it was so expensive to call collect, and someone just me call them the other day they are going to get a big ouch on their bill.

Coconet Internet gives you 5 minutes free to US or Canada with the purchase of any beverage (beer, soda, water...) and it's $1BZ a minute after that.
