If you have an island friend with a pin number acct for overseas access, that rate is lowest. Intl.phone cards, sold everywhere, are the norm.Cell phones are now everywhere on island. NEXTEL will also rent you an intl.access cell phone,deliver it to you via fdx the day b4 you depart for charges of US$9.95/DAY
plus phone call costs. Do not call the States collect -- you'll pay upwards of US$7/minute, more if your hotel levies surcharges.

P.S. Intl.phone cards for use in Jamaica can't be bought in States;must be bought on island.

I purchased my Intl Phone card directly from my phone company.Try calling them to find out if they offer one.It is still quite expensive because Jamaica only has one phone company and they set there rates.My phone bill for one week, of course I had to call my Grand daughter about ever other day was $235.00.

Used the phone in my hotel room and called direct last week. It was $28 for 8 minutes there was not a pay phone on the property.
