Hey new here just wanted to say hi
Going to Aruba for the first time this July and staying at the Marriot Surf Club.
Any suggestions on things a first timer MUST see on the island?
thanks in advance
your vzw bb will work fine on the island. make sure you switch your network settings to "gsm" from "global or EVDO" which are your current settings.
go to: options/mobile network/ and change network technology to "GSM/UMTS"
also make sure your data services option is to "on" and while roaming settings to "on"
btw, you need to have the global data plan activate for your phone to work down there for data. voice calls are connected with your regular services via one of the local networks - spotty coverage at best.
Whoa....I just asked my verizon rep to turn international calling on for the month and then had it turned off when I got back...the first time I connected to the internet it took a long time but after that I got my emails every day without problems...no problems with network either although to be honest I only checked my cell in am and pm, the rest of the time I kept it off....
Spanky,welcome and check out Senior Frogs.Take a bus or taxi(you won't be able to drive when you leave there)Go and you'll see what I mean.Texas de Brazil is a good place to eat.Even the Hard Rock Cafe Aruba really rocks.They have a sound system that just begs to be cranked up.(and they will)Shoot me a PM and I can give you more places to check out.Regards,Ted
