ABOUT THE LIVING LIFE IN COSTA RICA BLOG

I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find here!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
VOLUNTEER TO HELP:
Better yet - do you have some time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love (that comes up often on the first pages of google searches) & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help going through & updating things. Let me know if you can help!! People that speak Spanish are ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

DONATE:
Has my blog helped you in any way? Helped you find something•given you more EASE? Brought more exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!
ANY size DONATION is APPRECIATED!

What is "PLAN SMS INTERNACIONAL" on the ICE bill??

Does anyone with an ICE cell phone bill know what this means:
PLAN SMS INTERNACIONAL  20   20     $2.80-U.S.•1,408.51-c
??? Does this mean I made 20 (or ANY) SMS/Text calls internationally?? 

Does it mean I have a plan that allows me to make international calls?  Because if it does,
I JUST tried calling a U.S. # and it said I didn't have permission to make the call and in OVER 8 years of having this cell, I don't recall ever making an international call - besides, why would I do that if I had Skype for MUCH cheaper???

Someone said perhaps I had used my cell after crossing the border into Nicaragua or Panama which I hadn't within the timeframe above - but that was good to know that MAYBE there was a separate fee if I cross over say 5 minutes into another country and still have a bit of a signal (I'll be looking into that also).


I can tell you that they're not showing up on my bills!!!



WOW - I JUST looked at a bunch of old bills and it's on ALL of them!!!

People -
CHECK YOUR ICE BILLS!!!


HMMMMM - looks like a visit to ICE is in order!!   Once I find out what to do I'll be sharing it here as well as

I decided to switch to pay as you go, so I KNEW what I was paying for. Now KOBLI has a special, for $7 per month you can call your favorite for free. Also has good long distance rates and text messages too!! I've never been more happy with a pay as you go.
