Sim-Card for internet:
The best we found was the Digicel Martinique "Forfait Life". It is a subscription, but you can stop it whenever you want. It has the "Life 20GO" for € 39.90/month or the "Life 40GO" for 54.90/month.
You have 20/40 giga in the month, you can share with computer. Phones & SMS without limit in Europe (not Switzerland) & Caribbean. It functions in the whole Caribbean, even in Panama.
The 40GO subscription covers also calls & SMS to USA & Canada.
To stop the contract, they need a letter which is not always easy to send. The easiest way is to contact them and ask to change your sim-card Forfait Life in prepaid sim-card, in french they call it "le basculement à la carte". They ask you why, just say you're out of Caribbean for a while and want to Keep your number for when you return. It functions well. Your number will be deactivated after 3 month of non use.
