    We are in Aruba now. I got a Setar SIM card recharged for an unlocked phone for $29.00/80 minutes. Good for three months. Works perfectly. No free or even reliable wifi at Occidental, but now we are at Casa del Mar and I am using free wifi from Matthew's restaurant. Used it to Skype home yesteday afternoon. Worked well.
    Technology can be a chore for sure, but once you get things figured out, it does make a great difference.
    Ayo, back to the beach!

    And what about if you put a setar sim in your blackberry, does it automatically give the BB service?

    Cellphone Rental vs Setar

    i have been trying to find out pricing for cellphone rental and daily usage..

    We have a Setar Cellphone that we purchased 2 years ago....However last year when we went, the Setar place at the airport was closed and the store near our hotel had the craziest hours...When we finally made it over there, the phone needed to be reset and had to pay an activation fee plus for additional minutes..

    In the end my phone bill was almost $500.00..and the setar ended up costing around $100.0

    To avoid a sitution like this, I was wondering if anyone could tell me..

    How much does it cost? Daily? per minute?
    Do the deliver to your hotel? and pick up?
    Do you get your number in advance?
    can you reccomend a company?

    Thanks!!

    There's a thread a few down from your that says Aruba Fast Phones that might be helpful.

    I have a cell phone delivered to my hotel by Fast Phones. Here is what I pay for the week.

    1 week plan $50 included 91 minute

    You can email Iris at: iracema178@gmail.com

    They provide the number a few days before your departure.

    I am sure there are others available I just started using this a few years ago and was happy with it so I stick with it.
