I am planning on bringing my cell phone with me to PC. AT&T assures me that my phone will work there (international roaming). Has anyone had any problems with their cell phones while in PC? Thanks, and Happy New Year! 16 more sleeps...I wish I could figure out how to do a ticker!

...I wish I could figure out how to do a ticker!
It's easy. Just go to a site like TickerFactory and then build your ticker by using the selection boxes. When you are done, cut and paste the bbCode provided into your signature (in your profile). If you have any difficulties, I can talk you through it.

we have at&t and have used our cell phones in punta cana... you just have to call at&t before you go and tell them when you are going and they will pretty much do the rest for you.. make sure you call them before you go though.. you can also get international on your phone and pay a fee through out the year..we just pay as we go since we only travel once a year overseas it averages out to be about the same. roaming fees are 1.99 per minute so it can add up fast ..so if you think you are going to talk more you would want to put it on for the whole year. However I would avoid text messaging. hope this helped ;D
Thanks. That was the same information I got when I called AT&T. I just wanted to find out from someone who had actually used the service whether or not the info I had received was correct. Having the phone with me is more for peace of mind since I'll be travelling alone with my son. Thanks again!

I also have at&t and another thing they DO NOT do unless you ask them , and that is to program so you can retreive you messages in case you get them. That was the only problem we had last year but we called and got that taken care of, make sure you have your phone with you when you call thats how they program it. Another thing atleast you know that you are not getting ripped off by the dominican phone co. my girlfriend did last year and came home to a 450.00 phone bill on her charge card, she did have it taken off her CC bill and won
I work for Telus and to update your roaming list press *22803 option 1 english option 2 update prl ... just make sure that you have the international code on your phone, just call and get it added. it is a free code unless you are new to Telus and there may be a deposit required..... As for the text messaging mine didn't seem to work so I will also update my prl and see it if works when we go in 24 days!
kim *edit* text messaging will not work in the DR, I verified it with my tech dept. I had a friend that just came back from FLA and she was tempting me with her sunny pics from her phone and I wanted to return the gesture!!!LOL oh well when she see's my very dark tan that will drive her nutso!!!LOL *****
