Re: Buy/Sell New/Used Cell Phone Master Thread
So do Verizon phones work on TMobile and Sprint? TIA

T-Mobile and AT&T yes. Sprint most do: all Verizon iPhones and most Verizon Android phones in the last 2 years.

Re: Bahamas Master Thread
Anyway of avoiding the $100 departure tax on award tickets?

Make a stop in SJU. No departure tax because PR is in the Caribbean and no departure tax from SJU to Continental US because it is a US territory.

Re: Bahamas Master Thread
Anyone stay at Grand Hyatt?

The Grand Hyatt Baha Mar is a fantastic hotel but not very shabbat friendly. The regular rooms start on the 7th floor (I think the lowest possible floor is 5 - the lobby is several stories high and housekeeping/catering/administrative floors are above it). There are no staircases that lead to/from the lobby. All staircases lead outside the property and it's a small hike to get back to the lobby. Also, you can't re-enter the stairs once you exit (they lock from the inside on both the ground floor and upper floors) so getting back to the room from the lobby by stairs is nearly impossible.

Also what do people do for food?

We brought frozen from home and used the mini fridge in the room. Be careful not to touch the minibar snacks when loading the fridge - even picking one up and putting it back down will incur a charge.

Do you bother renting a car?

Did not rent a car. Taxis are strictly regulated by the local government in the Bahamas. Taxi rates are fixed from the airport to hotels, downtown, shopping areas, Paradise Island, etc. They take $USD.

Re: Hawaii Master Thread: General Questions And Which Island To Visit?
How's the Hyatt Place Waikiki? Any nice cheaper hotels in that area?

If you've ever stayed at another Hyatt Place it's identical. They are all the same. This one is fine - clean, comfortable, nothing fancy. About 2 blocks from the beach. Free breakfast is nice but had a hard time finding kosher things to eat (all of the bread for example is a local brand). They don't provide microwaves in rooms (supposedly due to fire code rules in Waikiki?) but they will gladly heat up your food in their kitchen's microwave for free. Free overnight parking 2 blocks away on Monsarrat Ave if you can find it.

Hyatt Centric Waikiki was fantastic and a much better value IMHO if you are paying cash rates. If points then can't beat Hyatt Place.
