Default Internet in Aruba

Please Login to Remove!

Im cancelling my internet on my Storm for two weeks while in Aruba, so as not to incur hefty charges.

Question: Can I connect my 9530 Storm to a wifi card provided at the hotel which is a much smaller fee?

No, there is no way to connect the BlackBerry to a WiFi card.

Nope, as NJ said not possible. The Storm has no WIFI

Often when I travel, I take a simple flip phone for either roaming on voice only or for a pre-paid SIM. I leave a laptop in my hotel room for email and only check it when I'm there.

If your phone is unlocked another option is to purchase a local prepaid sim card in Aruba
