I will be living in San Pedro for 5-6 months. What do you recommend for cell phone so I can call family in US and be called by them? Rearrange my cell plan here or get a pay-as-I-go once I get there? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Thanks. I don't expect anything to be cheap. I just want reliable and reasonable.

My Verizon cell phone works on the Island, but if I recall it cost $1.75 US per minute!


I'm happier than a pig in s__t...a foot on the sand...and a Belikin in my hand!

You (currently) have two local services to choose from - BTL's Digicell and Smart. For Smart you'll have to buy a dedicated phone once you're here, but by repute the service is better and cheaper. For Digicell you may be able to use an existing phone so long as it operates on the correct frequency and is unlocked.

Whichever you choose will be a much better bet for use here than any service from out of country.

I can't call Smart phones from the States. Don't know about Belize to the States.
