Cell phones

Hi There

My hubby is travelling to Cuba at the end of February. What can he expect for cell phone coverage? He is going to Playa Larga to do some fishing which, from all I can figure, is quite a ways from the main tourist places.

Thanks!

First of all what type of phone does he have? Cuba operates on GSM900 so only Rogers/Fido phones used to work there.

However some of the new Bell and Telus Blackberries have sim cards and will now work in Cuba.

He has an iPhone 3. He won't want to use it but wants to know if he could in case of an emergency.

Thanks!
