Roaming is expensive. U are essentially paying two networks for each call/text/kb of data. I buy a prepaid sim when I travel.

You have different roaming options

http://www.bmobile.co.tt/services/roaming/
just have to be informed and choose one to suit your needs.

Sounds like you're traveling within the Caribbean and paid for a roaming passport.
