Any suggestions for cell phone usage in Aruba, my carrier, Verizon doesn't have any plans.
I have AT@T and used my own phone in Aruba. Because I don't have small children at home, so no need for daily usage, only one or two short calls. But it is good to know in case of an emergency I can be reached.
I rent from Aruba Discount Cell - excellent customer service and cost effective for me. I call home a couple of times a day to check in with the bird sitters :)
Another vote for Aruba Discount Cell!
Does 'discountcell' give you your phone number before you arrive?
Yes, they will email you with it prior to leaving for your trip, a few days before usually.
I wanted to pass on some helpful information if you are considering renting a cell phone in Aruba. You may find that your personal cell phone service is expensive and we all know the rates for calls from our units. I have been using Fastphonearuba for many years and have been extremely satisfied with the professional service I have received. Charles (owner) runs the business and he is very dependable and very reasonable. I find it great to have the phone so that I am free to make all my island calls as well as calls back to the states. You can even request the cell number that you will have, before you leave so that you call leave it with family and friends. Using Fastphone has been one of the best things I have done while on the island. They will deliver the phone to your resort, so that you do not have to worry about this at the airport upon arrival. I would highly recommend giving them a try. The web address is firstname.lastname@example.org
