i am deciding whether to buy a cheap pay as you cell phone while in Antigua, or to use my Canadian phone (crackberry) with the appropriate card plugged in
last time we were there i used the phone i rented for maybe 12-15 minutes and 2 text messages (just taxi and meet-up coordination calls)
it is still my plan this time to avoid phone with back home
i am a computer guy and even with people watching my servers there may be something it is better/faster/cheaper to call me about than work it through themselves
so i am trying to figure out what to do
we will also be in St. Kitts and Nevis for 4 days and Barbados for 1 on either side of the Antigua time, so i am leaning toward doing the roaming - even if my charges are $3/minute and $75 for the phone chip/card that will work out to be a lower cost than buying and i won't have be out of touch for the 5 other days...
