beware international plan for Bahamas
Before leaving for the Bahamas I called to add the $10/day international plan and was told that I would accordingly be able to use my phone as usual: calls, texts, data. Despite staying in a major resort area the entire time, though, I found that reception in the Bahamas was SO BAD that effectively I had no international plan. Other than occasionally receiving texts from the states, my attempts to use the phone without wifi were frustrating and fruitless.
Upon return to the States I called CS to request a refund of these useless charges: AT&T had promised international service it did not deliver!!
The representative gave me a partial refund, but I still ended up paying more than any of that "service" was worth. I asked that this feedback be forwarded up the chain--that AT&T should not sell international plans in the Bahamas it cannot deliver--but the rep seemed indifferent to this and just wanted to get me off the phone.
SO THIS IS AN ADVISORY for anyone considering international usage in the Bahamas who happens to see this first: Don't do it. It's not worth your money.
