Question
Dear Scottgem

Can we have wireless phone and internet connection on our smartphone or mobile phone when traveling in the ship?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Depends on the ship. For example, Royal Caribbean Cruise lines just launched a cruise liner that does offer cell and WiFi connections, even at sea. But the ship has to be capable of pulling data down from satellites. Most don't.

Hope this helps,
