There's been a few discussions about this, but none fully answer my questions so I will start a new thread...
I'm going to Aruba in a few days and looking to get a couple prepaid SIM cards to be able to comunicate with each other on the island and also to call back home. I understand that there's 2 providers in Aruba: Setar and Digicel.
What is the pricing for these cards (without phone rental)? It's difficult to locate this info online.. Digicel hides it somewhere on their site and I found it once and could never see it again. I think it was $20 US, but not sure anymore.
What about Setar, how much is their kit?
Do any of them include some credit to get started?
Do their long distance charges (for example to call Canada) have any additional charges. For example. It says on Digicel's site that calling Canada is 37 cents/min at all times, while calling a setar customer (fixed) is 84 cents (44 cents off peak). It doesn't make sense that a local call be more expensive than a call back home!
Which are easier to reload? (while on the island)
Do any have decent (or unlimited) data plans (for an iPhone)?
Do any carry micro sims (otherwise I'll just take my sim cuter)
What's the advantage of dealing with a reseller (like Arubafastphones) rather than the providers directly? Are the prices the same?
