I used my verizon cell phone to call to US today and it worked. No idea what it will cost me.

Thanks for the info. It is nice just to know that it works, in case of emergency and/or to briefly check messages from back home.

My Verizon cell phone works on Bonaire. Before leaving I called Verizon and added "international calling" to my plan, it is free of charge.

I just went to Verizon two days ago and asked what it would cost.... they said LOTS... you are roaming.... I don't know if you've ever been near the Canadian border and got the towers from across the border but YIKES it's very expensive... go see Michael and get a phone... you'll be better off... IMHO

We also have Verizon here in the states and will never use our phone on BON. WAAAAY to expensive. We'll rent from Michael in less than 60 days

Try using Skype instead of your own cell if you have internet connection.. I hear it works fine. Will be trying it myself first time in May.

Vince, I got Skype and have used it to keep in touch with my daughter in college while on Bonaire and some other folks. Works great. You can also buy minutes to talk to anyone even if the person you are calling doesn't have Skype, something like 2 cents a minute! Can't beat that. Gregg just bought this cool phone that you can use for Skpye too, don't need your computer to use it either. I don't understand all about that phone yet, but it is a bit high techy for me, so I will need lessons on that part, but it is just like a cell phone. Gotta love Skype!

Thanks Debbie..Good to hear that... I've already purchased the headset and plan on using it once I get the internet set up. Lots to do!
