I saw somewhere that GSM has come to Honduras. Our site does not list anything. Does anyone have any experience? A neighbor is going on a mission trip and I have offered him my UM phone. It has 19 ecents inbound.

The postpaid had SMS as $0.05 and minutes around $0.25. Now is that US of Honduran $? Why don't they show the rate in their native currency?

From Yahoo Finance I get:

Currency Conversion Results
Symbol U.S. Dollar Exchange
Rate Honduras Lempira Bid Ask
USDHNL=X 1 Sep 15 18.895 18.895 18.895 18.895

seems to mean $1 = 18.9 Lempira.

Ill be in Roatan next month, I have a global sim which has support for Honduras and I have 850. Just wondering if anyone has any first hand knowledge of any coverage on Roatan and any other input which might be useful.

My friend decided NOT to take my UM card. From the response I got here.... and from looking at HOFO and the German sites, Honduras is not a very popular destination.

I was in Roatan, I had access to one network with Yackie even though it wasnt listed on their coverage page. I picked up a total of 3 networks. I am sure the mainland has at least those, so unless you're in the jungle I would assume coverage should be ok.
