Can I use a Blackberry Pearl cell phone in Cuba?

Question: My daughter has a Blackberry Pearl, can she use this in Cuba and how do I add the service?

Answer: In a telephone consultation with Cubacel, the business arm of ETECSA which offers mobile telephone services in the country, they said the following:

“As long as the Blackberry is GSM (900 MHz) and has International Roaming set to include Cuba, she should be able to use it while walking off the plane.”

In short, be sure to confirm, before coming to Cuba, that your International Roaming option for the Blackberry covers Cuba.

  • I just found out it will be a Selective Series like the one we had back in the ‘70s and ‘80s with six teams. The details have not been revealed yet but it will begin in June (30 or 40 games) and 140 players will participate. As to your wish to play with locals in Varadero you’ll have to ask when there where the fields are where people play and maybe you’ll be able to play if it’s not a league.

  • I’m traveling to Cuba from April 12 to 17. I know the National League finals will be over, but I heard there is a Super League played afterwards. Is this true for this year?

    Also, I would like to play a game with some of the locals while I’m staying in Varedero. Will they let me join in?
