Giantfan13 Posted August 16, 2006 #1 Share Posted August 16, 2006 We have Cingular service for our cell phone. I called them to see if I will have service in all the Islands. They said YES, as long as you are within range of a tower. I guess that means in the cities. but probably not out in the country, in the mountains or away from population centers. I also asked them about calling while we are docked in a port. They told me that the ship has a cell phone tower also. If you are on the ship, or within range of THAT tower, any calls made will be charged $2.40 a minute and you won't even know it. I asked them, how would I know if I'm using the ships tower to make a call or a tower in town and the answer I got was he didn't know. Just try and get away from the ship to make calls. Even if you receive calls while on board, that $2.40 charge will still be charged. I forgot to ask if that includes the 'walkie-talkie deal' calling phone to phone. Make most of your calls during the day when you are off the ship just to be sure and tell all, not to call at night to avoid that sizable charge.
