I know this topic has been covered, but my meager search skills did not find the answer, so here goes again:

What are our options with respect to making/receiving cellular calls from the island. My wife has AT&T Cingular service and her phone has a place for a SIM card if needed. Will we need one, or will we be able to use her phone w/o one? I would assume we would have to pay roaming charges if we could.

We don't really want to bring it, but her father is ill and we will need to be able to stay in touch somewhat. Thanks for any info!!

SIM card doesn't affect service. I have cingular and phone works most of the time when I'm there - It's pricey, but can make and receive calls. Also can text and receive texts, and so far for me that has been free.
I can never remember which is better . . . safe? . . . or sorry?

KC, I have AT & T also... when I was down there in May I was able to pick up a BTL (or something to that effect) tower.. plus I had a full signal.. I didn't want to use it as I'm sure the roaming charges would have killed me. But I'm sure someone can answer you better on that subject.

You may want to talk to Dita about how they use their phone here.
To my understanding phones need to be unlocked and not analogue. I am not sure exactly how it works with a USA based phone #. When I got my phone off eBay we paid for new sim card and phone # to get it running.
