you'll have to set your phone to roam..... the bad part is you wont know the roaming fees till you get the bill. In San Juam I was hit with a $60 charge for about 4 to 5 minutes.

Look at my post on 3/5/04. I have Verizon Wireless and was able to call in Calica and Cozumel. It was not expensive compared to the ships rates. If you search by author with the keywords tamigenecruise you should find it.

Your phone should work, but always check with your cell phone carrier to see what the roaming charges should be. I have T-Mobile and for some reason wasnt charged roaming in Cancun. They should be able to send you a map of their service area (or you can find it online) and if your phone works outside your service area, be prepared to pay roaming charges that can be outrageous!

Try searching the Cruisemates site for tamingencruise instead of the net.

Just go to search at the top of this page and type in tamigenecruise and check author and you should find it. Sorry I wasn't more specific. Have a good cruise.
