    If I remember correctly it's free for premiere members but don't remember the cost for those that are not premiere.

    I believe it is fairly expensive, like $15/day. Not sure where it works in the resort, but curious to know. I had my I-phone with me on my last trip, but never used the internet as I did not realize that I could be using the wi-fi instead of the cell signal :roll:

    This is a good podt. I have an iPhone and the dat package for the internet is for unlimited usage as part of my monthly rate. Guess I need to contact AT&T to see if international has a special fee.

    Our Iphone didn't work for the internet there. but we could receive and make calls. We even got text messages. The internet could not connect. Good thing, heard it is expensive.

    very expensive to use iphone data in cancun. had a friend who ran up a $500 data bill in cancun

    wanted wifi just to check email but its cheaper to use puters at hotel than add on $24 for mexico data plan
    oh yeah, remember to turn off your data roaming. you get charged everytime your iphone even "checks" for email.
