    Aruba wedding

    Has anyone used a Mio on the beach and used Skype to talk to people in the US? My daughters wedding is in July and a few people can't make it to Aruba. I thought it would be cool for them to still be able to see her get married. Thanks, Diane

    Mio works great anywhere. The house we rent has Setar and that works half the time but I always reactivate my Mio when I go because that ALWAYS works. The charge doesn't last long, maybe an hour or two tops but it always works.

    If you have an unlocked smart phone, you can get a sim card at the airport and the phone can connect to the people back home (e.g. FaceTime if its an iPhone, Skype or Google Hang Outs if it's Android) and the phone can also act as a wifi hotspot (like the Mio device does) if other people want to connect to the Internet.

    It'll save the hassle of having to carry around the Mio device.
