Anyone know what's the story with zmanim on rangali island? Myzmanim doesn't have this location, but has male, but male (mainland) is one hour behind...

That could be quite confusing come Shabbos...

Most new phones can do that (at least on T-Mobile)

Just to caution you, T-Mobile rep insisted to me that even as a wifi call you may be charged by them as the call may need to be routed through foreign carriers based on the country you are calling from. I'm almost positive he was making it up but can't say for sure

Is there any benefit to a beach villa vs an owb in terms of techum Shabbos? Or no difference? Is there no problem with either?

Right that's why I can't imagine it making a difference. It should all be one big city in terms of tchumin

Or do it the old fashioned way, get sunrise and sunset times for dhaalu atoll. STR provides plenty of pen and paper to figure it all out ;)
