Sam & I are coming down next week and wondering if there is any way we can make our Verizon Cell phone work in San Pedro. This is kind of a working vacation for us and we need to stay in touch with the office.
Does anyone have any suggestions ?

Safe diving to ya. I'm jealous. Working trip? You leading a group? I don't envy you on second thought.

You guys have a good trip and save some Belikin for the other visitors.

I'm not leading a group, that is way too much work. We are going with another couple, also divers. Leaving 28 Jun returning 9 July.
Sam needs to say intouch with her office and also her Mom is not doing well.
It has been 2 years since we have been to SP and I bet a lot has changed. How have you two been doing ??

I have Verizon and my phone didn't work while I was in SP. Maybe if you have an international plan... but agree with Tillie, call them up and find out from the company itself.

BC, If your phone is "unlocked" and works on gsm network like cingular or t-moble. You can purchase a sim card from C's store on middle street for about $25US. It will come with a local phone number and a 10BZ phone card. If you need more air time, you can buy an digicell phone card and load the minutes into your phone.You are then ready to go.

I want to be just like Capt Jeff when I grow up!

Yes, C's is great and does not charge much. However, if you do put there sim card in your phone it will delete any numbers or messages you have on it. When you put your card back in the phone they will be gone.
