Which island? Most islands do have cell service. Check with your provider. You can also purchase a sim card locally or get an international one here:

verizon does work in bermuda, but you need to call prior to leaving and set your phone up for the latest roaming. If you have a blackberry, you need to have a sim card.

You need to tell us which island. For example, Verizon will tell you it works in Turks and Caicos, then it doesn't. At&T told me my phone would work in Costa Rica, and it didn't. Phones bought in Peru they told us would work at Machu Picchu, and it didn't.

My At&T does work in T&C.

There are also other options, some islands are big on prepaid cards, some will sell you a cheap cell phone, some islands will rent you a phone.

The island you're going to could make a big difference.
