    Basically, you can buy a device similar to Mio (called a mifi hotspot). The one mentioned above just happens to be from Verizon. You buy this device and then get a sim card from Setar, just like you would do for your iPhone. The benefits to the mifi hotspot over just getting the sim for you phone is that you can hook up more than one device, including a laptop or tablet as long as it is wifi enabled.
    Best Buy sells a no contract mifi hotspot that has no contract so it is not connected to the Verizon network. You could buy this, then do the sim card and data from Setar. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/verizon-...?skuId=5140012

    I believe Curt (aka Burghboy) has a device similar to the Mio that he got from Digicel and he just tops it off with data every trip. Maybe he can provide more info if you sent him a PM.

    You are 100% correct! Its funny a couple of months ago my son says "dad when are you going to fix your clock because of daylight savings time" My response was as soon as I figure out how to...new car etc... My son responds I know how to do it...and of course my next statement is "CJ you have no clue" to which he promptly told me how to fix it and he was 100% correct. I have no idea how he knew how to do it but he instantly knew.

    The MiFi device that I bought is exactly like the MIO, using Setar data plans.

    Or you can unlock your phone, get a SIM card in Aruba and the phone can do the same thing as these extraneous devices.

You can get 3 gigabytes for $20, 5 gigabytes for $30 and 15 gigabytes for $56. So you can connect multiple devise just like the MIO.
    yikes,if this only came with step by step picture telling.wish we still had MIO.LOL
