Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean Using a cellphone thorugh Latin America?

I am about to go on a trip through south and central america for 5 months. Does anybody know what the best/cheapest wya to use a cellphone is over there? Can you buy a sim-card that will work through all of the Latin american countries? Or is it better to get a plan from home (New Zealand)? Or do I have to buy different sims in each country?

Thanks,

Holly :)

Different sims in any country is the cheapest way(tim brasil in brasil) or claro(works all over south america) but it requires time and luck, not all resellers will sell you the sim cards because you need a sort of Social security Number or tax code.

But the easiest way is an international sim card prepaid, you gotta search it on the web.
