We are planning to purchase our own phone from Digicel when we arrive and are wondering what the true charge rate is for phoning home to Canada using regular minutes. Seems to me a 1000 minute long call to Canada at a cost of $10 US cannot be the case. Minute for minute. I also understand that regular minutes can be used for local and international calling and those international minutes you cannot use for local calls. I would like to know what the true costs are.
