    Even though I'm not there yet, I can answer your question regarding vonage! With the service, you're actually given a U.S. number (you can either use one of your own numbers or choose an area code and they'll assign the rest). So, I now will bring a Baton Rouge number to the island with me.

    all the cell phone plans are free incoming calls i believe---

    your significant other can get phone cards from cards4students.com that are for the USA to SXM--it brings the cost down to about 20 cents a minute

    or your significant other can get a skype account and call via the internet to your phone which cost about 5 cents a minute

    10-10-220 was a decent rate for calling the island directly in a hurry.

    re:

    I use skype with my parents, yes my parents, and it is free skype to skype. They downloaded it by themselves and use it by themselves and they are old. so it is very easy to figure out. best method I think but you do need a good internet connection. they have wireless phones USB phones you can use with it so you don't have to be attached to the computer. I think it's the best if you don't want to pay for vonage or deal with it.
    I just hate stupid people. They should have to wear signs that say I'm stupid. That way, you wouldn't rely on them would you. You wouldn't ask them anything. It'd be like, "excuse me...oops, nevermind, I didn't see your sign."

    That's how we keep in touch with the family. Not bad, but we both have to be online. For a spouse it is nice as a backup.
