The problem with wifi and Skype is that where wifi is available in the out islands there is usually not enough bandwidth for Skype resulting in very frustrating and incomplete conversations. I usually only cruise south of Nassau now, and the availability of wifi is very spotty. In the Abacos, (I passed through coming home this spring but usually skip this area of the Bahamas) especially in the Hub area it's pretty good but once you go south of Nassau it's a different story. As for pay phones even on some islands such as Rum Cay where there's a Batelco tower and office there's no pay phone!! E-mail seems the only semi reliable communications system. Globalstar still sucks so unless you have lots of money and patience forget it. The surest method of communication is a Batelco cell phone but as Cam says it'll cost you.
Toronto in summer, Bahamas in winter.
