I would contact your cell phone company as I am going to do. I need to stay in touch a couple days while we are docked.

I have Nextel and coverage in the continental US is very wide but I did not check out the Hawaii coverage.

I'd give your company a call.

I called Nextel today and they said they have coverage all over the islands.

My wife uses Verizon, and it worked fine, although it took a few minutes to find a signal. It probably won't work too far from shore, but we used it when docked

We just got off the "Radiance" and cell phone use was rampant while we were onboard!

Wife used her Sprint of the Big Island, Maui, Kaui and Oahu with no trouble in normal mode while on a recent Carnival Spirit Ensenada to Honolulu repositioning cruise.

She has also used her Sprint cell phone in normal mode in Juneau, Alasaka, Pureto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
