If phone work at all, they are more likely to work nearer to Atlantis.. non of my ""iffy" phones have ever worked from Cable Beach. My ATT GSM works from nearly everywhere, including Cable Beach.. but doesn't get incoming calls.

Update on my phone. My ATT GSM phone worked fine for Xmas in Nassau, but 6 weeks later, it got NOTHING. No signal incoming or outgoing. It's really hit or miss down there. Best to just buy a Batelco Phone card and call from a pay phone.
