Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Telephone Communications in Caribbean

There is cellular phone service in the Caribbean. However, there is
very little roaming capability. In the British Virgins, I have
recently learned that there is now some roaming capability to the
U.S. Virgins. Also, I have found, due to terrain and lack of antennas
one is often out of range. Arnold

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Telephone Communications in Caribbean

Hi to all,
Excalibur (SM # 195) is in Lanzarote, and we plan to cross to
Caribbean in late Nov./early Dec. Anyone else crossing this year?
After 6 years in Europe, using a GSM cellphone to stay in touch,
we're heading for terra incognita as far as cell phone
goes. What have some of you found useful in the Caribbean?
We have an Iridium sat phone, but are looking for other options
for family & friends to reach us on the boat.
Any ideas would be appreciated, or web sites to check out.
Thanks, Roy
