    I'm a Bell Pre user who is going on vacation to a nice warm jamaican reseort.

    I highly doubt that the pre will work on that Countries carrier, which is no big deal, but since the resort has FREE WI-FI, does anyone know if that will work, even though the phone is not connected to a physical carrier? I was hoping to use the Pre's built in internet for email, and such?

    This would be a real bonus since calling home from land lines is soooo expensive.

    Wi-Fi in Jamaica will work just fine unless they have been developing a special Jamaica only Wi-Fi protocol powered by rum. Last I checked this wasn't the case.

    That said your not going to be placing phone calls over that Wi-Fi (no apps yet) unless your tethering back to a PC and the PC has some VoIP software on it.

    Jamaica does have CDMA service.

    Well, if they DO have a WiFi service powerd by rum, I'm going to BUY it, no questions asked! "Why, yes .. I'll have another 8 ounces of WiFi, please".

    GSM prevails over there.

    Thats great. Thanks folks. Mmmmm, Rum Networks.

    At least I can email from the Pre, and thats exactly what I was hoping. Take realtime pics and send them wirelessly back to the suffering Canuks.

    That may be. However there are a few CDMA providers in Jamaica. I know that TELUS has a roaming agreement with one of them so it's likely that BELL does as well.
