    Where can I rent a cell phone

    I'm not interested in buying a phone, I just need to rent one - I'm staying in the west end, any ideas appreciated. Thanks!

    There are several drivers that include a phone with their services. Are you hiring a driver to get you to/from airport?

    Years ago there were businesses that rented cell phones...as prices came down for phones and phone plans, some tour operators/airport drivers chose to offer a phone for your entire stay as long as you booked your arrival & return ride to the airport with them.
    Otherwise, you need to buy a phone here or bring an unlocked phone that you can buy a sim card for...either from Digicel or Flow.

    Yes, if you have a private transfer you may be able to borrow a phone. If not(and I know you said you're not interested in buying one but), we purchased a cheap phone for about $25 and each time we go back it's about $5 for a sim card and about the same for the phone card.

    I have another question. My provider switched to Lime and last year they wouldn't sell me a sim card without a Jamaican ID. This was at Megamart in MoBay. Do I need someone with a Ja ID to get me a sim card still in Negril?
