I would check with AT&T and make sure you have Int'l service. They can turn on temporarily (for a fee of course). Once it's available, it was pretty simple. I believe it was +011-area code-number.

Good luck.

I have an Iphone and I just use it like I am in Missouri. The saved numbers I just touched and it goes through. Some cells like the Iphone sense your location and adds the appropriate prefix number. I used mine in and around Barcelos also.

Mark -

It is pretty simple. As previously mentioned, you have to have International Service. If you only want the phone, it's cheap (about $5 per month) and can be turned on and off as needed. You can either do it on the website or at an AT&T store. Data is much more expensive if you need emails.

I will be going in less than 2 weeks myself. Wishing both of us good trips. I'd love to hear how yours went when you get back.

Unlike other trips where once you left Manaus you were out of touch, my Blackberry worked in Barcelos. After a week out of touch, I was reading the news stories and football scores to everyone.
