cell phone rental for overseas

Can anyone recommend a US company that rents the international cell phones so we'll be able to check in back home while overseas? Thanks!

Cell phone coverage is not uniform throughout the Caribbean, so it depends where you are going.

Mobal.com is highly recommended on the Europe board, but its coverage in the Caribbean is spotty.

If you know now where you are going, repost with the specific information. Some US cell phones providers have systems that work in parts of the Caribbean.

I'm sure there are others out there more knowledgeable than I.

Here's a good website to check what kind of GSM phone you might need:

And here's an article that I found to be of help when I was searching for cell phone info for our trip to T&C.

Buying through Mobal sounds like a great option, but we're going to Aruba.

You can easily rent a cell to use in Aruba and they will provide you with the # before you leave and either deliver it to the hotel or you can pick it up at the airport try :
