I only have anecdotal information, no personal experience.
You need to get your phone unlocked and then you can buy a SIM card there.
Some say that it's just as easy to buy a phone here --- they're quite cheap.
There was a thread on DR1.com recently that referred to this. Perhaps if you go there and search you'll find it. It also suggested the 'best' provider.

2Hey, I was just wondering the same thing. I'm living in the US but thinking of spending a while there. You can send prepaid recharge to phones with a service called ezetop. I use it for Cuba all the time. When you recharge in US Dollars you get a preferable exchange rate, because the cost of living is lower. Never tried it for DR before though, my friend is on Orange there

3People have told me that (unless you want to be very high-tech) your best bet is to buy a cheap phone in the DR --- they're really quite cheap --- and give it away when you leave. There are so many mobile phone subscribers that they've had to go to three 'area' codes from one in (don't quote me) about ten years.
