    Cell Phone

    Anyone have any info on getting a cell phone in JA? Can you use an unlocked phone and just buy a sim card?

    as long as it is unlocked it should work


    You should be able to find a digicell location at the airport or close by.

    just ask someone once you land

    There's a Digicel everywhere so as soon as you leave the airport you'll see a dealer. One thing to know technically they want you to subscribe for it with someone with a local address. If you pay extra they give you the chip

    If I get an unlocked phone from here, can I just get the sim card from there or I still need someone's addy to get the number, etc.

    Yeah bring your unlock phome form here and buy the sim card down there. You are going to need a local address to get the SIM card but if you pay them extra they'll sell it to you.

    If you have a T-Mobile phone up here you can call T-Mobile for the unlock code
