    Verizon will unlock the iphone 4s so a setar sim will work - I dont know about other carriers.

    Not sure why that article says "just announced" - I used that 30 day package while we were in Italy for 16 days in Aug. Signed up for it before we left and had no problems.

    This is an old thread but if it helps any, make sure to call your carrier to unlock your phone for international use. As long as it has a sim, you can purchase a sim card from Setar or other local carriers and it should be smooth sailing from there. Setar won't unlock your phone to be used in Aruba. As someone else mentioned, there are several hotspots in Aruba with free WIFI but you can also purchase WIFI service and do Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp and all those good applications. Oh.... when you get a local phone carrier, you can also purchase local calling cards (available at most (if not all) establishments) to make cheap international calls because as far as I can remember, Setar charges a good bit.
