    I am getting it just for phone calls on the island.

    I travel with my home phone with my computer. So all I need is Internet which the Radisson has for free, and I will have my home phone with me. So all calls to US are free for me!
    Sgroi135,
    thanks for the info. I guest I do not need the SIM then as I'm packing my nokia E51 so that I can make VOIP calls via the hotel internet
    Cheers

    come to think of it, i think i know why i couldnt activate the SIM.

    you have to go to options/mobile network and change the network technology to GSM/UMTS. don't leave it at Global - it won't pick it up.

    after doing the above, my data network was running on EDGE (3G) and calls were made/received with ease. however, by that point, i was running on my vze global SIM card and not SETAR. i was so afraid of losing my connection, that i didn't dare switch SIMs to test the SETAR one.

    Sim Card

    We have T-Mobil and purchased our sim card from the Digicel Shop located in Wendy's shopping Center on the way to Eagle Beach. I think we paid $29 for our sim card and got over 50 minutes. That was 4 years ago. I do not recall the exact amount of minutes. Since we visit Aruba a few times a year, we just purchase a minutes card a couple of times during our stay as we stay for over two weeks at a time. It is a big savings in the long run. I keep my cell phone with me at all times and shut it down after we return from dinner.

    Might I add that when we purchased our sim card, T-Mobil unlocked my cell phone before we left for Aruba and provided me with the code that I had to present to the Digicel dealer.
