As a tourist, you may face problems with the network service because the cell network in the islands is not that efficient in holding the calls for long. The weather conditions also make it difficult for people to use their cell phones. Even while the Bahamas offers an international roaming service, it takes a lot of time to connect to the network. However, you can purchase a local SIM card when you are there to make local calls. If you want to make international calls, the hotels will provide you with good WiFi and landlines. Even though they are not the best methods in the age of technology that we are living in, they will provide a classic feel to your conversations.
