St. Martin Where to Rent Cell phone?
My intl. phone charger is missing. Someone mentioned renting a cell at SXM airport? Please respond if you can as we are leaving in the morning.

I'm not aware of any place that rents cell phones at SXM, nor am I aware of any place that rents short term anywhere on the island.

I just looked in the phone book and below are all companies listed. You might try calling one of them for further info. since you leave so soon.

TellCell: 599-542-4155

Eastern Caribbean Cellular: 599-542-4100

Smitcoms NV: 599-542-2210

UTS / United Telecommunications Services: 599-542-0101

I would imagine you could purchase an inexpensive cell phone with UTS ($50 or so) and then you can still use it internationally anywhere else you travel by changing out the SIM card for a local number. That's what I do.

Good luck.

That's good to know. :) I figured that somebody on the island must rent them, but had no idea where to start looking other than the basic cell phone companies.

We rented from Sharon Harris when we went to St Martin and I would recommend her.
