I was wondering, I activated my cell phone for international calls when I was traveling to Mexico, I was wondering if it might work on AC. If not can you get calling cards and how much is it to call the US. Thanks!

Please pardon my cell phone ignorance... to switch out the SIM card, etc, do you just have to have a certain cell phone model (ie one that is 1900 MHz, GSM, etc.) or do you have to actually have working service through Cingular, T-Mobile, or another compatible service provider? Thanks.

All you need is an unlocked GSM 1900 MHZ phone. All the info needed is located in the SIM card. Most phones you remove the battery and there is a little door which holds the SIM card. Takes all of two minutes to activate on the BTL system. No working service on any US plan required.

dabunk,
how does one tell if one's mobile phone is "unlocked"?

Im not 100% sure of this but i think if you buy a calling card from the states than you have to activate it from the states, i had an experience when my calling card would not work from AC.

This all seems too complicated for a vacation !! I think I will just give my international hotel number to family & they can contact me in case of an emergency.

there are internet cafes on the island that you can make calls to the states from if you dont have a phone or calling card.

Vacations and cellphones/calling cards should never be used in the same sentence
