    last I knew there were no Nextel towers, but if you have push to talk on the Sprint side it may work with an international phone.

    Answer is NO, No iden units work in Aruba Not even Sprint cdma push to talk. just interconnect (phone calls) but leave it home and rent a unit in Aruba you'll be better off.
