I remember reading here about an inexpensive cell provider using AT&T network in STT and elsewhere, but cannot find it in the search engine. Does anyone have info on this service?

Any pros/cons of this service compared to AT&T?

Stick with AT&T or Sprint in that order.

I switched to at&t due to a plan they have wheb combined with directv and had great coverage in stx. Had verizon previously and they don't cover the island and no data plus expensive calls.

Cricket is AT and T's cheap plan, and it works great there.

We can't buy Cricket here, as they only accept stateside addresses for signup. They are a good deal, and I would get a Cricket plan if I were moving here from the states.

Sorry, yesterday I meant to post that I missed the fact that this thread was about STT and not STX, but I got the "your post has not been accepted because it looks like a bot" message.

Anyway, yes I got Cricket in FL and used it on STX, so I don't know if it works as well in STT. It's $35 for one line with unlimited text and I think 4 gb data.
