Good morning, Is there any cell phone service available on STX that includes coverage to the US without long distance charges?

I had AT&T - a flat monthly plan that allowed calling any U.S. state from USVI or Puerto Rico and vice versa @ $39.95/mo

AT&Ts nationwide plan really includes all of the USA including the Marshall Islands and Guam for no additional cost.

Strange thing with AT&T is that it costs extra to call Canada. I use my MagicJack for Canadian calls as there is no additional charge.

AT&T works fine in the VI without incurring international charges. Unfortunately, my husband's Verizon account would ping to international charges on occasion. Stick with AT&T.

You can buy an ATT go phone, just pay amt of $ for a month/three months, no contract. You can get one at Radio Shack!
