Vacation in Varadero Cuba - What do I need to do for Data / Texting / Calling ?

What do I need to setup on my phone or add to my mobile plan to make sure I can call, text, surf the internet while in Varadero Cuba ? Is a Travel add on enough ? or does Cuba require other modifications.... ALSO (FEEDBACK), since so many Quebecers go to CUBA/MEXICO every year, FIZZ should have a VACATION section to make this simple and easy to figure out !!!

    You cannot make calls when travelling outside Canada and USA
    For this you need to use an App such Fongo.
     
     
    Be sure that your phone support B1, Cuba uses only the B1 Band

    You need to enable the data roaming, buy an addon (https://fizz.ca/en/faq/im-travelling-outside-my-coverage-zone-what-are-my-roaming-options) for the data and double check the APN, you must use the Fizz, sometime people have videotron VPN which is working in Quebec, but not in roaming
     
    Remember the bandwith in Cuba is limited :(

    Antonio,
    Just buy add-on for data for Mexico before your trip.
    Install and use the free application FONGO for your calls (fongo needs some data)..
    Enjoy Mexico!

    Antonio,
    You cannot make calls in Mexico.
    Buy some data (add-on) before our trip.
    Maybe for your calls, buy a sim card locale.
