Phone Service at Paradise Island

Does anyone know if it is difficult to call the States from Paradise Island? Will my cell phone work there? (Cingular & Verizon). I have heard it is not easy even using regular phones and very expensive. Any info would be helpful.

thanks!

I just returned and my Verizon/Cingular cell worked fine, although it was at roaming charges.

My verizon didn't work last year at this time. I'm taking it this year and hoping it will since the lasst poster says theirs did.

I'm going to Nassau in April. I have Cingular and they added world service to my plan (no fee - pay for minutes - $1.99 per minute) and assured me my phone will work there. I'll post after the trip.

I just returned.. my GSM phone with Cingular worked fine when I was there for Xmas.. six weeks later. NO SERVICE.

It's really hit or miss in the bahamas (by the way.. I signed up for international also.. and still didn't get service). Good Luck.
