Re: cell phones

The only difference between Jesse James and Batelco (cell phone) is Jesse had a gun. Cumputor and wifi cost you in Abacos (marsh Harbor) as well. The only thing free in the Bahamas is the wind.
All the best,

Re: Cell Phones

We had issues with spotty cellphone coverage along the coast of Maine. The Bahamas are likely to be spottier. Where there was service, the AT&T internet linkup worked pretty well for emails and quick research on restaurants to check out.
