QUESTION: Hello! Do you know where I can get a cheap cell phone in order to use Digicel to call home & to use while in Jamaica? Thank you for your help.

Hi Karen,

Thanks for asking. I assume that based on the nature of your query, you are already aware that it is much cheaper to do it this way. In fact, whether LIME or Digicel, it is best to just get a cheap phone here (some as low as probaby USD20) and use it to call back home.

Then it's just a matter of topping up with one of their overseas (international) calling plans.

Last I know, they had plans for like $1000 (JMD) or about USD 11 plus tax, that gives you up to a 1000 minutes.

If you have your own phone (unlocked), you can just buy a SIM card for under USD$7 and go!

In relation to the locations, I'm going to include links to both the Digicel and Lime locations.

Here's the link to the Digicel Store Locations in Montego Bay (St. James).

And since you are coming here, I'd highly recommend you get a copy of my Jamaica Insider Guide. It captures the very best, safest and most affordable of Jamaica, plus I also have a nice launch discount going now.

All the best Karen.

Wellesley
