Cell Phone Usage in Ocho Rios Jamaica
Posted 18 August 2008 - 05:25 PM
I am getting married in Ocho Rios Jamaica and my parents need to be able to be contacted during their stay as they are small business owners. They are looking into getting a cell phone they can use in Jamaica. Have any of you guys done this already?
I also saw on some websites that you can rent a phone once you get in Jamaica.
Have any of you guys had to do this or seen how it would work in Jamaica? I am staying at Sandals Grande Ocho Rios. Does anyone know if they offer anything? Also, have you seen any good places in Jamaica where you can buy phone cards to call back to the US at a good price?

We were actually at SGOR and our friends verizon phone did not work. People could call in but we could not call out. It was really strange. It worked that way with both phones they had with them. We did not even bother taking one. I am not sure if the different sides of the resort made a difference but we were on the Rivera side. Also international calling cards no not work there. You can buy prepaid calling cards in the gift shops but they cost $20 and are only good for a couple of calls. We ended up giving the resort number and room number to our family for calls. We also took our laptop and could get internet off and on in the Rivera lobby and could easily access it in the Manor house lobby. Just an FYI I thought i would share!

And they discussed the calling card at our intro meeting and it was expensive. We ended up just emailing from the internet where you could get a 10 dollar card for an hour or something.
