    Going to Aruba for the first time this July and staying at the Marriot Surf Club.

    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....
