Last November, we had a condo which included a landline, with free calls to the USA and Canada. We will really miss this feature this trip in a different condo, as we have a 17 year old daughter, we totally trust, to attend school and her P/T job. But, she does need called daily to make certain she is up and ready to face the day ahead of her. She loves to sleep, and obviously spoiled beyond belief, so being an early riser, and never adjusting to Maui time, I would always call. Plus, we would call her 2 or 3 times during the day, plus family and friends. It was great. Now, I am wondering if anyone knows if it is worth buying a cell phone sytem on the island, or calling cards? By asking the forum, it will save us lots of time, wobbling around Kihei from phone company to phone company likely wasting half a day. When on the US coast, which is quite often, we buy calling cards, which work very well. Anyone with any suggestions, would be appreciated.
