Not sure whether you are from London UK or London Ontario. I have had no problems at all texting my friend either to their UK sim card phone or their Cubacel simcard phone even whilst the Pope was there.

Bellagio, perhaps you can help. Your post makes me think you understand these things. If a friend in Cuba asks me to get him a mobile phone ( next time we visit ) what do we take?. Do they have to buy a Cubacel sim card or can they use the UK one - if its UK how do they put money on it. We have old 'pay as you go' phones that they are welcome to but don't understand how they can 'top them up'. Obviously the phone would need to be unlocked. We are happy to help but don't understand how our old phones can be used in Cuba. Any problems with taking any extra mobile phones in to Cuba?
