    Lime is cheaper to buy & minutes are cheaper. Calling US or Canada is only 3 cents a minute. No need for most people to buy international minutes.

    I got a sale in November but paid about $11 for phone, SIM and $100j in minutes.

    Actually Lime is not new. It is just a rebranding of Cable & Wireless. But they seem to have stepped up their game to compete with Digicel.

    We just made Local Ja calls by asking a local to call a number for us. Most wouldn't even take J"s that we offered. Most of my Ja calls where to driva to pick us up.

    We found that the best place was Lime in Mobay or there is one in Negril as well and paid 30.00 for a Nokia phone and 1100 min of talk time which is great deal and don't have to worry about your everyday phone and extra charges or losing it!
