TO ALL REGARDING SPRINT IN PUERTO RICO / USVI / BVI,
I have been a SPRINT customer for many years (30+) and have been coming to Puerto Rico
(Wife is from PR), the USVI and the BVI
for over 40 years as we own a boat
in the BVI's. SPRINT of yore had a coverage problem, however over the last 15 years, in addition to their own expansion, they have entered into many roaming agreements with local providers to rectify that problem. Ensure that your SPRINT plan includes free roaming!
For years, I have had no connection problems in PR / USVI / BVI, when line of sight to the USVI
. Two years ago, I learned of SPRINT'S GLOBAL ROAMING PLAN for use when outside of the USA
. It costs absolutely nothing to add, nor maintain, on your plan unless you use it, then it is $0.20 per minute for Voice (IN / Out / Voicemail) Text and Data are free!
I have been using this plan for two years now and, in fact, am currently using it to communicate with SPRINT GLOBAL ROAMING friends on our boat
in the BVI's, as I type from PR.
I have taken two Caribbean
cruises within the last year and my SPRINT GLOBAL ROAMING worked at most of our island destinations for checking in with home vs $7.95 per minute using the ship's communication. NOT!
