It should work since its a GSM service, but it will probably be pricey. Well worth it for a necessary phone call or two though.

You can go to the Bahia and pick up reception form Belize with BTL phones, not such good reception with Smart. I used to be able to get reception from the Sam's Club parking lot, and sometimes from inside Sam's Club. Smart phones say they are roaming, but you can't dial out.

Sounds like you just need a new phone. I've had service all over Belize City, San Pedro, Caye Caulker (most of the boat ride in between these locations too) and Chetumal with 3 different phones in the time that I've lived here.

We were in Mexico a few months back and the friends we were with are customs brokers who do a lot of work at the border and their Mexican cell phone when trying to add time to it said that it now required an address in Mexico before allowing the top up. It was something to do with having a trace regarding the phone so not sure if buying a sim card would work anymore.
