I have T-mobile here in the states and wondered if anyone knows if this will work in Belize.

I've already called T-Mobile and they currently don't have any partner networks in Belize. However, they said that i may be able to use the networks in Belize and be charged their rates.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

No US network coverage. You'll have to get your phone unlocked, buy a local sim card and number and pay their rate!

Verizon works in Belize for about $1.75 US per minute!
Very strong signal.......better than local cell service.

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

I have T-Mobile in the States. The network they use is BTL. The rates for a call to the US is about $4.50 per minute. Text messages are 50 cents. I turn off my data before I leave the States so don't know what the cost would be. I have been using T-Mobile for the last 3 years and stay on Caye Caulker for 6 months at a time. Suggest you get the phone unlocked and get a local SOIM card. Cost for a call then is about 12.5 cents. BTL has recently changed their rules about unlocking phones and giving them SIM cards. I just buy unlocked phones in the States bring with and then use as a local phone. I also use Viper, Skype and Tango to make calls they are almost free.

I have T mobile phones. ask them to send you the unlock code. then follow the directions. you will need a non-t mobile sim card to do it. very easy to do
