Taking a trip this summer to Aruba. While I thought from going through Verizon's site that my Eris should work there, some of the rate info was confusing so I called today and here is what I got. I also have a question or two for those who may know. 1) Eris will work in Aruba, they have to turn on International dialing which can be done the day before and she suggested that I get the Unlimited International Data plan that I can also turn on the day before and turn off the day we get back. 2) International Data plan was roughly $65 per month but pro-rated for 8 days is about $17. 3) Other rates: Standard Rate per Min: $1.99 Rate per txt message (SEND) : $.50 Rate per txt message (REC) : $.05 Picture/Video per msg (SEND) : $.50 Picture/Video per msg (REC) : $.25 Pay Per use Rate (KB) $.020 ( I assume that this is a non issue if you get the unlimited international plan. Here are my questions: When I asked about turning off mobile, gps and roaming and just using the wifi capabilities of the phone, she said that it was still using data and therefore I would need the data plan. I disagree ( I think ) because if I connect to free wifi, my data is exclusive to that provider, right? Shouldn't I be able to surf on wifi for free? I seem to recall some eris users in earlier posts saying something about using an unactivated phone for wifi surfing? Anyone else have any helpful info ( other than don't take the thing at all ) for using my eris's ( whole family has them, I think I will only activate two of them so the wife and I can cut the kids loose some but keep in touch. Thanks for any info!
