SIM Cards in my GSM phone

I have 3 Android phones that are GSM and unlocked. The smartphones in Bequia are very expensive and Im kind of tired of using my little nokia there. Can I bring my unlocked GSM phones, buy SIM cards on Front Street and be off and going? Also, if I do that, what number do I have on my phone? These are phones I am leaving in Bequia so I would like them to have 784 numbers.

Thanks for any advice.

Should be good to go. I believe both Lime/Flow and Digicel are GSM. If you have quad band you should cover all possibilities. You will also get a 784 #.

Get a SIM card from FLOW and you will have a local number. You can save your minutes from month to month either by using the phone or by adding a few minutes quarterly, which you can do very easily and inexpensively online.
