Default Cdn phone calling cards in St Thomas / Martin

I would like to know if the Canadian phone calling cards will work (calling back to Canada) in St. Thomas and St. Martin.

Thanks

If they are like most phone cards, you have to use them in the country you bought them in. There usually is an 800 number on the back, and you can try calling them and asking. I do believe you would have to buy a calling card from St. Marrtin or St. Tomas to call back to Canada.

Good Luck,
Erin

If it is an International calling card, it might work. As Erin suggested, call the carrier and find out.

Off the trail a bit... I learned that in PR and St Thomas my cell service (T-Mobile) works just as if I was at home; no roaming or long distance. I can't wait to call everybody back in frozen MN in January and see if they want to go get a bite to eat or a drink or something. If they do, I'll say, well I'm in Puerto Rico so can you make it by closing time? Haha. Can't wait - Liberty Jan '07

We have found that calling the 1-800-555-1111 to get to the Canadian operator has often been the very best deal for us. We charge it to our home phone calling card and get our prearranged rates because of it. The only catch is there is a $1.25 service charge, but who cares, once you've been ripped off for an $8 connection charge from an island and then an exorbitant amount of your minutes consumed you really don't mind the $1.25 fee.
