    Phone options

    Advertisements



    Hey I am starting at Antigua this fall, and was wondering what are some of the phone options that are available. My family lives in New york and they are a little concerned about me living on the island and want to stay in touch with me. Vonage, magicjack or prepaid cell phone service? which one do u guys think is better?

    I'm from NY and heading down for September 10' as well. A good friend of mine used magicjack on the island and it worked extremely well! If you have used it before then great! If not it is super easy to set up, only costs $40 to get (this includes the first year of calling!), and you get unlimited calling to US and Canada + Caller ID + email based voicemail (works very well with gmail though you could use it with any email provider as the voicemail is, I believe, and mp3). I'm not sure yet about cell phone services, but definitely go with magicjack and if you happen to have a laptop with a camera that will do you good so that you can have face to face chats with your family :-). Overall the internet connection (atleast that my friend had) was excellent so there weren't any funky lag issues. In any case, good luck! NOW GO BUY A MAGICJACK! :-)

    Most people I know here use skype. It's free and the quality is pretty good with a decent internet.
