    Phone

    I know I know... another phone question, but there is no clear answer on the most popular choice. I want to have a cell phone but people calling me will have to pay a lot right... basically what is the most popular?

    If i got a vonage, how much are the calls from east coast US (estimate) from your experience. Also, can someone tell me the best cell phone service i can get for the island. Is cingular the best one that works on the island for the lowest price.

    if you have vonage, people calling from the east coast should cost nothing at all. all the cell phone service here are prepaid. there isn't cingular, tmobile, nextel, verizon, etc.

    Phone (question)

    IF i have a vonage with a US phone # at SXM, will my calls to my local area code in the east coast count as a local call, since the area codes will be the same?

    You get both.. use vonage or skype to talk to people back home for cheap and then use your prepaid cell phone for connections on the island.

    Yes, but it doesn't matter since Vonage includes long distance. The nice part is that people from your area code can call like it is locally.
