We went to Jamica last year. It was the first time my husband and I had been back to Jamica in over 10 years. We took our three kids with us for a nice family vacation and see relatives. Knowing that we needed a way to sgtay in touch with friends and family while travelling in Jamaica, and wanting avoid the absorbitant telephone fees cahrged by our hotel, we decided to purchase a phone from the local cell phone carrier.
Digicel is pretty much Jamaica's national cell phone carrier. They have retail stores in all main cities on the island and thankfully there was one within walking distance to our hotel. They had many phones to choose from but the plan with the Coral 200 was a great deal so we chose it.
The phone itself is thin and sleek. It is black in colour with a silver boarder or outline. It doesn't have a qwerty keyboard but normal alphanumeric keys like any regular phone. On the display it shows you signal strength, when you're roaming, that the alarm is set, among other things. There are two free games on this phone - Tetris and Push box. It has messaging and contacts features too and even a currency conversion tool. Neat, eh?
This phone served us well during our 10-day vacation. I recommend the Coral 200 phone as an economic option to other phones availble through Digicel.
