    Cell Phone

    Hi,

    I'm heading down in a few days 6/29. I wanted to know if anyone ever rented the cell phones in Aruba and if someone is calling from the US do they dial an international number or are the phones setup with US numbers? Trying to figure out if its a good deal unless you have to pay international rates on your home phone bill if the kids keep calling you on the vacation

    calling Aruba requires an international #, and, as you may know, the international rates are way expensive.

    I have rented from Aruba Fast Phones. They are very reliable. You can contact them on their website http://www.arubafastphones.com/ Weekly rate is $50. for the phone which includes 84 mins. Daily rate is $8. Calling the U.S. from Aruba you dial 001 then area code and number. Calling Aruba from the U.S. is 011 then 297 then the number. Fast Phones has a kioski outside the sliding doors from the luggage area where you would pickup the phone. If given enough time, they will email the cell phone # before you arrive in Aruba. If I remember correctly, rates calling the U.S. to a landline phone was 34 cents minutes. More to cell phones.

    We have Bell South for our cell phone provider. We signed up for the international calling and all we were charged was $1.99 roaming fee for each connection.

    We have rented from Fast Phones before but found that this was a cheaper way to go.

    Phone usage

    Hello,

    We will be needing a phone while on the Island for our entire stay, 10 days.
    We expect only to call out to the states three or four times maybe 15 minutes per call.
    As we are not up on this could anyone offer assistance on where and what to do?

    Thanks everyone.

    I would first look into you celluar phone carriers availability...most phones will work in Aruba, I would call your carrier though and see the compatability. The other thing you can do is rent a phone from Setar-they are a rental agency for phones and computer stuff. There is a kiosk in the foyer area as you are leaving the airport for rentals and I think you can go through your hotel as well. I learned a hard lesson last year by using the hotel phone to call back to the states...this year I will either rent or use my cell...good luck. If you stay on this website and look on the "about' tab at the bottom you can see info about travel communications as well....hope this helps a bit!

    We use Verizon Wireless and they activated international calling for us. It's 1.99 a minute to make a call to the states, or to receive a call to the states. My wife is taking hers because her father is ill, I'm leaving mine in my car because I'm not speaking to anyone but my wife for 2 weeks.

    Arubafast phones. incoming calls are free the last I knew. Get your number out to family etc. when you get there and have them call you.
