    cell phone rental question

    Would like to rent a cell phone in Aruba. Does anyone have infomation on aruba discount cell or aruba fast phone? Aruba discount cell seems cheaper but I haven'seen any comments on this company. Do they really send the phones to your hotel? If so is the phone waiting for you on your arrival? thanks for any info.

    You can pick up and then drop off the phone right at the airport.
    They will send you your cell phone number before you arrive on the island.

    I use Aruba Discount Cell...used them last year and will be using them again this Sunday for 2 weeks. Very happy with them and cheaper than Fast Phone, although I've heard great things about Aruba Fast Phone too. Discount will deliver the phone to your hotel and pick it up as well.

    Aruba fast phones is great - I like that they send me the # prior to the start of my trip and the fact they are right in the airport.

    I get a SIM card for a phone I own when in Aruba.

    The SIM I bought was a digicel I think - they told me it expires if I dont use it for 3 months.

    Cell phone or phone card?

    Does anyone know how much it is to rent a cell phone in Aruba and the cost of calls to the US?
    Where do they sell phone cards and how much are they? I haven't been there in 5 years so I don't remember.
    Thanks!

    >>> "Where do they sell phone cards"
    ---- Usually a gift shop in your resort will sell them. They can also tell you the best way to use them. Even with a card your resort will usually charge you for a local call.
    There are a couple of phone centers around the island that you can use also.
    Repost where staying and someone may respond best way to go.

    Thanks. I think the phone card may be more affordable for me. I am staying at The Marriott Stellar Resort.
