Just out of curiousity - were the Wave Phones always free of charge (besides the damaged/lost fee)? For some reason I remember there was once a charge for them... ?
Thanks

There is no charge to use the Wave phones. There is a rental charge if you need more Wave phones than what's already provided in your stateroom.

New wave phones

I was on etsy and wanted to buy a wave phone holder but the Disney magic has a new larger wave phone that does not fit in the holders. Does anyone know the new dimensions of the new wave phones on the magic?

This is my first attempt at making a Wave phone holder from leather. I would love everyone's feedback

I made a wooden block to the size of the wave phone and then stitched the leather together for a snug fit to prevent accidents.

I have asked this question before, no one seems to have the answer. Hope you get a response.

I don't seem to remember hearing constant paging sounds on our previous cruises. It does not have to be a full on ring but some kind of audible alert would be a nice option. I am sure many people would choose the vibration option anyway.
They definitely do ring! You can change the settings... I know when we were in Palo the table next to ours rang a few times and each time it did, at least four other tables reached for their purses/pockets/etc... it was actually a little humorous and gave us cause to chat up our "neighbors."

On our January 2013 cruise, we could not change the setting to ring. The option was not active. Is this a change? I hope so!!!! I really would love some type of sound alert for the boys, since they keep their phone in a backpack sack as opposed to their pocket. 3 more days til we head for Miami!!!!!!

I was on the pre-pre-Inagural cruise of the Dream, which as far as I know was the very first sailing of any Disney ship that had paying guests aboard to have wave phones. They were free then, so I feel comfortable in saying that they have always been free.

On our first two cruises, the ring option was locked out, except on one of the rentals we got - the stateroom ones were locked.

On our last cruise on the Magic, it had the new Wave phones. Neither the ones on the room, nor the rental we got were not locked out and you could change turn on the ringtone.
