Re: Verizon Phone Service in the Bahamas?

We are about 6 months from throwing off the dock lines and heading south (actually east, then south - currently on Lake Erie). I have been researching phone coverage and the T-Mobile plan seems very promising. When I checked last month, they were offering a plan that would provide 4 lines with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, 2 gig of data per line and unlimited international/roaming service for $100! I know - sounds too good to be true. I haven't yet read the fine print or tried to sign up - but will be looking more closely as departure time approaches. We are currently with Verizon and paying through the nose.

Re: Verizon Phone Service in the Bahamas?

I switched from Verizon to T-Mobile because of the GSM in the Caribbean.
I called T-Mobile to unlock my samsung because I was travelling overseas. They texted me an unlock code within ten minutes...

Re: Verizon Phone Service in the Bahamas?

Has anyone tried Verizon's Travelpass program yet in the Bahamas? According to the website it is now available at $10/day once enrolled. Curious about coverage and data speeds.

Re: Verizon Phone Service in the Bahamas?

Ten bucks a day? You got to be kidding. BTC 7 gig 45 days. $50. Foreign text fifteen cents. Local a nickel.

I should add that I come over for a few days at a time, not looking to get a local SIM card though I know this is the cheapest route. More about convenience.
