> OTOH, I could imagine that getting a SIM in, say, Orlando, might've been a bit more complex.

Well, getting anything in Orlando is a pain.  There's an Airport Wireless 
store in the airport which may have SIMs, and a couple of Cellphone Outlet 
stores, one a mile north of the Caribe, one a mile south.

Perhaps we should have a new criterion that venues should be within 
walking distance of a phone store, as well as restaurants, grocery stores 
with everything-free food, and so forth.

Unhelpfully,
John
