Before you board, you need to take your cell phone to an authorized t-mobile dealer and have it "unlocked". They will have to add international coverage to your phone. Also, your phone needs to be able to operate in all three bands. Older phones typically do not have this capability. And finally, be aware that your calls will likely be about $2.49 per minute. If your phone rings and you don't answer it, you will still be billed for a minute of usage. My advice would be to keep the phone off until you are ready to use it. Calling from ports is significantly cheaper than calling from the open sea.
