“Is it possible to buy a cell phone here in Panama that allows you to pay for calling credit as you go? A pay-as-you-go phone?”
— An attendee here at the conference this morning
In fact, I replied, you can buy a pay-as-you-go cell phone here for US$5…and it comes with US$5 of free calling credit. The cell phone industry in Panama is super competitive, which means your options are many and the costs are low.
