    Verizon charges are ridiculous. I rented a phone but got it the day after we got there. I made a few calls the night we got there from my verizon phone. those few calls cost more than the rental of 10 days of a phone on aruba. rent a phone...

    I work for Telus Mobility in Canada, last year I took my iphone to Aruba and thru on a calling pkg for $10 which discounted the rate to $2.25/min from $3.00/min... very expensive which I only called twice home to my husband...... lol to make sure my dog was doing ok without me.... and also put on a international text messaging pkg for $20 and since I have unlimited texts that worked out well for me. This year I will have to put a data block on my BB cause the data plans are outragous. I would rather buy internet time for the small amount of emails and facebook while there.
    Looking forward to trip #3

    I have used my verizon phone in aruba and wham...get home and have a HUGE bill 300.00
    the roaming charges will kill you... I am thinking this trip of either getting a phone down there or just a calling card for the few times I have to call home and check in with kiddos.

    Verizon charges $1.99/minute for talking and .50 per text for sending and .25 per text for receiving. I used my phone while in Aruba but knew the charges ahead of time so it wasn't as much of a shock when I got the bill!!

    Calculate that the charges with any mobile phone rental company on Aruba will be .24 to .22 on outgoing to USA and Canada. All incoming calls are free. This is the standard.
