    Phone Home

    Verizon does not have a roaming plan. They charge a flat fee of $1.99/min. With our 3 kids remaining home in NY the Mrs. and I will be checking in nightly.... I was wondering if anyone here had tips on the most cost effective way to phone home. Calling Card, buy a 30 min. cell phone , etc....?

    Thanks for all of your help. You have all been kind and extremely informative...

    If you are bringing a laptop and will have internet - Magic Jack is a good alternative. I was impressed with quality of calls I have been able to get through Magic Jack.

    cris,

    also depending on where you are staying you can buy a 20 min card for the black phone banks beside Brickell Bay resort and check in with the kids that way....
    I have verizon also and if the kids text you its cheaper, like 5 cents but if you text back I think its about 25...but a lot cheaper than calling....and you only talk about the important things and not idle chit chat.....
    ARUBA....HOME AWAY FROM HOME
