    Only way to know for sure is to check the coverage maps for the zip code you are traveling to. If it's any shade of pink or magenta you're good,the darker the better. Tho I would think that the major population centers are covered, as for roaming its not a big deal you won't accrue any extra charges.

    No extra charges to use T-Mobile in Hawaii. In remote areas with weaker coverage, you may roam on AT&T, but I have never incurred extra charges in that scenario.

    Thanks for the info! I'm going there too pretty soon :)
    I actually was thinking that it makes more sense to look for some local operator to avoid any misunderstandings and make sure I won't be charged with multi-digit bills later on, but if you guys say it's ok with AT&T i believe you :)
