    if you take your protective case off your phone there is a side slot with covering.
    use a paper clip to open the little drawer...it pops out.
    your verizon sim card is there (tiny)

    the digicel or setar person removes the card ...they insert either the digicel or the star sim.

    they give you the verizon sim, taped to the wrapper that the new one came in.

    they enter the code and you are done.
    you are also given a phone number for aruba.

    mine was 3 gb. and i have had it for a week.
    so far i have used 993 mb, so i still have a little more than 2 GB to last me til wednesday.
    if i am in wifi range, i use wifi instead.
    the data is good for 30 days.

    go to google and type in how to insert sim card on iPhone and it will show u.

    when we leave on Wednesday, we will insert the old VZ card and toss the Digicel card.

    Thank you Andrea. I did call verizon and she said all 4g verizon phones are unlocked. She told me how to do it. So you can use it for phone and internet, right. Sorry i ask so many questions but we are new to smartphones and no longer have Mio. If i recall, isn't there a digicell by superfoods? Also, how is the service, like if you wanted to surf the internet say on the beach (arashi)

    We did a live chat with digicell. They are located in Curacao. They have a special that is $20 for sim card and a data plan is $30 for 15gb. He doesn't know if that special will be there by the time we get there but they think so. Otherwise, you do the 3gb. We are going to stop at the store by superfoods and talk to them. But if it doesn't work good on arashi, we are not sure. We have internet at the house. So if the service is not good on Arashi, we don't need it. I figured if anyone would know the servicethere, it would be you, Andrea, lol. The guy said it should BUT they are upgrading so it could be spotty. We laughed, very diplomatic answer, lol
