6This was some banter between a couple of posters on negrildotcom
"I believe you can get a Lime cell, & sim for $20. Marko did a thread on this wiith all the supportive facts showing how much cheaper Lime was than Digicel. I cut & paste it here for you:
Re: Cell phone question.
okay mi did the Jamaican cellie shuffle in Negril a week ago..........
it was a Monday morning and mi waited till 10AM and hit the Cambio at Bourbon Beach......yes they have one there
and then took mi $100J red plate taxi to the roundabout and proceeded to the Digicel Store.........
within a minute mi have the pricing for the cheapest Digicel cellie, sim and tax = $4,500J's
next mi went to the Electronic store on the second level of Coral Seas Plaza........
and within a minute mi had the pricing for the cheapest Digicel cellie, sim and tax = $4,000J's
then mi went door to the Lime store on the second floor above ValueMaster..........
and within a minute mi had the pricing on the cheapest Lime cellie, sim and tax = $1,800J's
so guess which one mi took........of course the Lime or Slime as mi call dem.......lol
the Lime came with 100 free credits too so it was a no brainer.......
mi gave her a copy of mi passport and the nice lady wrote it up........
plus mi bought $1,000J's worth of credits.........the Lime cellies are actually cheaper to call North America too.....
now if mi had been der the Friday before.....
they had the same cheap cellie, sim, tax and 100 free credits for $1,185J's as a one time special promo......dayum mi missed it.......lol
nice Lime Lady setup the cellie, checked to make sure it took a charge from the adapter and added mi minutes
FYI the sim card from Lime or Digicel is $300J's plus tax.......cheap mon
the Lime Store and Digicel Stores are open to 5PM weekdays........
the Lime and Digicel have about the same cellies........
mi got a Samsung that has the FM radio but never used it........
Lime had two choices for their cheapest cellie.......Digicel only had one when mi was there......
okay so mi had 1,000 credits.......so someone guess what mi had left on the cellie when mi left Jamaica......
approx 750 credits........lol......mi hate using phones on vacation but they are must when you need dem......lol
you can text from the USA or call Jamaica on Slime but you are roaming on the Cingular network........
the text messages aren't too expensive but you'll go right thru your credits if you talkie on it........lol
personally mi use eztop to top off the cellie.........you can see it right on the phone when you do it too.....
hope dat was some help........so go Slime.....lol........Digicel cellies are way too expensive to buy in Jamaica

8Visit this website. www.islandphonerentals.com . They rent phones with unlimited International calling from Jamaica to USA, Canada, China, India, Spain and The UK. You also get minutes to make local calls. They also rent5 smart phones with internet service. I recommended them to a fiend that was visiting from Detroit and she was very pleased. They have a desk at the airport
