Mobile Phone Coverage in Seychelles?

Hi,

My husband and I are off to the Seychelles for two weeks the end of March. I am bringing my cell phone (European, on 1800 MHz). Does anyone who has been there know if there is cell phone coverage on Mahe, Praslin, and La Digue? I know, I am on vacation, it is pathetic that I am taking my phone with me, but I need it to stay in contact with family!

Thanks!

UK mobile phones do have roaming access on the islands you mention - subject to the UK carrier offering roaming. I dont specifically know for other European carriers.
Alternatively, it is possible to buy a SIM card in Seychelles for a mobile phone (with a Seychelles telephone number) from Airtel.
Mobiles do not work on the more remote islands.

Does your phone also receive GSM 900mhz?
If not, you may be out of luck. For more info go to: http://www.gsmworld.com/roaming/gsminfo/index.shtml.
