smile For a cell phone to work in Belize it has to be an unlocked one. Once you have an unlocked one you can purchase a pre-paid sim card from BTL and your phone will work.
No idea if anyone unlocks cell phones in San Pedro but in Corozal Town you can get any cell phone unlocked at the White Saphire Gift Shop. They charge between BZ$50.-75. to do so. cool

Unless you're going to be in Belize a long time, it's not much more expensive and less of a hassle to just rent a cell phone (from BTL, car rental companies, some shops including some in San Pedro). Cost is around US$5 a day, plus the cost of a BTL phone card, which are in denominations of BZ$10 to $50.

I have cingular as a service provider here in California. When going out of the country I just give them a call and they unlock the phone and allow me to "piggyback" on the foreign network.

I just contacted them for out trip to Belize and both mine and my wife's phones should now work without a problem. Of course it is 1.99 a minute but the convenience is worth the price. smile

C's Phones & CD's across the street from Milo's Money Exchange on Middle (Pescador Drive) Street offers the following:

New and used cellular sales
Digicell 1900 sim cards
Unlocking phones
Cellular phone rental & repairs

It is far less expensive to use your phone with the prepaid digicell cards, especially if you be making local calls. You can have you incoming foreign calls forwarded to your phone here as well.
