From what I been able to find on the web sites, GSM phones are supported in the AVIs but not in the BVIs. Is this correct? Looks like the BVI Cellular only supports TDMI phones and the rates are very high back to the US and Canada?
Anyone verify that indeed there is no solution to use GSM phones in the BVIs?

GSM phones work in the BVI. All you have to do is get a chip for it from CCT Boatphone and you are on the air (provided that your phone works on 850/1900 Mhz bands).

The rub is that CCT will probably insist that your phone is not compatible and want to sell you a complete phone at an outrageous price.

CCT had a web site at www.bvicellular.com but it no longer seems to respond (get the 404 web site unavailabe). Is there a new site, or are they gone?

Thanks,

Dave
