Jamaica - Post And Phones

Jamaica for you

   Though fairly efficient, Jamaica's telephone system is expensive for overseas calls; local calls are far cheaper, but watch out for the shocking surcharges imposed by most hotels. You can bypass the high charges, though, by way of a locally available international calling card. The mail service is less dependable. Internet access is available in all of the major resorts for anything from J$150 to US$6 for half an hour
   Most hotel rooms have a phone , and phone booths litter the island; the latter accept phonecards only, available from hotels, post offices and gift-shops. The cheapest and easiest way to make international and local calls is to buy a Worldtalk calling card; they can be used from public, private and hotel phones for both international and local calls

   All Jamaican telephone numbers (except some freephone ones) have seven digits . To dial locally (within the same parish), simply key in the number. To get a number in another parish, prefix the number with "1"; you also use the "1" prefix when dialling mobile (cellular) numbers.

   To phone abroad from Jamaica, dial 00 + IDD country code + area code minus first 0 + number. For domestic and international directory assistance phone 114.

   The country code for Jamaica is 876.

   It's amazing how long it takes for mail to get across the island. Don't expect a letter from Kingston to the north coast (or vice versa) to arrive in less than a week. International mail is also slow - reckon on around ten days to a fortnight for airmail to reach Europe or North America. Most towns and villages have a post office , normally open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm; smaller postal agencies in rural areas keep shorter hours.
