Cell Phone Reception

Postby racing933 » Fri Dec 16, 2016 6:24 pm

All,

While I would love to go into Airplane mode for 4 days, and not make a single call, but that is not possible. How well do the cell phones work to call USA?

Any prior advise would be helpful.

I had good luck. Verizon allowed me to use my data and voice plan for only $10/day. Prearranged. The LTE data was frequently faster than the wifi.
No one I talked to knew I was out of the USA.

I used AT&T to make calls and text back to the USA with no problem. I turned the data roaming off and just used the WiFi at SPAV to access everything else.

I used Whatapp and was able to text and call USA using the SPAV Wi-Fi, no addition charges. May be some draw backs up I didn't experience any.

I used Rogers "Roam like Home for CAD 10.00/day" allow me to use my phone as I am in Canada. However data is very slow, so you may connect with wifi when you will in resort. Else phone signals are good; my switch back and forward to Claro and Orange.
