I just got my bill from that time period and the roaming charges were $245! (I use TMobile) I haven't seen hubby's bill yet! (He's with Sprint!)

    Another option that may be useful that was shared with us wayyy too late was to buy a local SIM card and insert it into your phone. That way you would avoid roaming charges. SIM cards costed about $16. Anyone trying to work out their communication issues may want to consider this option.
    We use AT&T and before we left we purchased an international plan for about $6 per month. Even with that plan you are still charged $1.69 per minute, and our bill ended up being about $75 for just the calls we made while we were there. All in all I wasn't impressed by our cell phone service at the resort. We were unable to get through to my sister (only guest with a cell phone) using our cell phone. Luckily Sandals was able to connect us, but that cost us $44 for just a few quick calls.

            Here is the the table set up at SGOR. I added nothing to the cake and the flowers in the center are the "free" bouquet. I was actully very happy with it and I am glad I saved my money for the fun stuff like excursions and shopping...lol

              As a sidenote - the cakes are yummy! We opted for vanilla because it seemed the most weddingish flavor and it was amazing, but then again, I don't discriminate when it comes to baked goods...

                Hehe... Me either Amanda! The sad thing is we sat the next night in the middle of the bed eating the left over cake they sent with us. It was pretty funny and totally us. I wish I had someone to take pictures of us doing it...lol

                  I have pics in one of the other Sandals threads of a few of the Sandals cakes- I think the thread is titled Sandals flowers and cakes!

                      Customs is very strict about taking "unpackaged" food across from the border. From other threads I've read on this site, you can't take your cake home...so if you like it be sure to eat it there!
