Buy a phone card from AT&T and use it anyplace. It's a total pain in the hiney to get through but it's cheaper than most, around .35 per minute. You can use them from BTL pay phones or the reception area in your hotel. Just dial 0 for the operator and ask for the ATT operator. They'll get you through. Also, ask your hotel reception person for the hotel email address in case someone back home needs to get a hold of you.
