Laptops, Cellphones, & Calling Cards while traveling....

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anyone has or is planning to take a laptop or cell phone with them while traveling. Or how about at least a prepaid calling card? Any advice would be appreciated, as I have never been out of the country with my laptop or cell phone.

 

I've heard that the wireless at the resort may be a little slow. I'm wondering if its even worth it to lag the laptop around. I know I need to check with my provider as far as costs for making calls on my cell. I was just wondering what everyone here would advise doing.

 

Thanks! pinkie.gif

I always bring my both, but in this case:

(1) I'm bringing my cell phone so I can call family/friends before their arrival in case there are any problems and so I can call the dog sitter.

(2) I'm leaving my laptop at home, but plan to log on to the resort computers to check in with BDW!

I usually avoid the laptop when on vacation - only take it for work travels. But, I always take the cell. Use it as an alarm. That is where everyone's phone # is stored. I don't answer it usually - usually don't carry it, but check messages daily for any emergencies.

both of us have blackberry phones, which we are taking. we are also bringing one of our laptops that has every communication between us and the westin saved to it, as well as printouts of the final details agreed upon and put in a file folder in case we need them.

 

also, my photographer will be delivering the photos to us on CD while we're still there on our honeymoon, so we want to be able to see the photos right away!

 

im not planning on using the computer to connect to the internet (unless necessary) or be on BDW while there, but i may check in for just a quick sec to post a few teaser photos to tide you photo whores over cheesy.gif

 

also, you should ask your cell provider to turn on your international calling feature, it often doesnt cost anything extra and prevents you from getting roaming charges

I'll take the cell phone if there is an emergency at home with the puppy dog. I'll buy a calling card so I can call home. The laptop will stay here. I don't have any more space for luggage/carry-ons! LOL!

yeah, also i am this way and i am a freak about the possibility of losing any photos from the wedding/honeymoon, so we plan to upload all our pics at the end of each day to our picasa account in addition to the computer, so that if the computer or cameras were to get stolen (god forbid) then we have all the photos elsewhere and its no big deal.

I will only take my cell phone bc all our important numbers are there...everything else stays behind, I think I will be too busy having fun to play with my electronics.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
