    wouldn't it be easier and way less expensive to just turn onto airplane mode and use the wifi for facetime or skype or another kind of wifi calls?

    I make a post on Face Book to my friend and family "Off To Aruba" and that's it. Phone off, no internet and just beach, happy hour, dinner, casino etc.

    You could save all that money by using Skype & FaceTime only. Instead of those phone calls.

    We have been relying solely on email and facebook messenger the last couple trips. It works well of you don't need the visual.
    Not sure when, but we will be back
