Hi all, Will be arriving on St Thomas July 26th to start working at Coral World. They are putting me up for a few days while I look for housing and a car. Would prefer to find something close to work. Not completely sure of budget yet, but its only me so even a nice studio is acceptable. Looking for a view, AC, and would prefer utilities included, but not a deal breaker. If anyone has anby bdwestfall - USVI Classifieds
Re: Sprint - 1 year ago
Thanks. Sorry, yes st thomas. Everyone I talk to says att, but their buyout structure is going to cost a good deal. Was hoping sprint was at least acceptable. But if not I guess I'll pay a ton to break my contract and deal with att.by bdwestfall - General/Relocating

Sprint - 1 year ago
Hi All, From what I can see from a lot of the Forum is tat ATT seems to be the provider of choice, but how is Spring? I'm having issues with ATT buying out my Verizon contract. Sprint is offering a better deal on paper, but if it doesn't work on island it doesn't matter. What experiences have people had with sprint on island? Thanks Dby bdwestfall - General/Relocating

Thanks, That''s good to hear. It's about what I was thinking, but wasn't sure. Maybe someone will eventually see this from the community and reply. Cheers Dby bdwestfall - General/Relocating
LGBT Community? Yes, No? - 1 year ago
Not sure which forum to put this in, but would like to get a read on the LGBT community, if any on St Thomas. The last few posts I can find were back in 2005 and 2006. Any comment on what it's like now? Bars, gatherings, etc? From what I can tell as long as it isn't flaunted most places are gay friendly. Any good hangouts? Just curious.

Thanks Luckygirl. Was just looking to try the get an idea of what things are like. I certainly don't plan on renting something 3000 miles away. The places I have found I double checked with the real estate agencies that listed them on CL. Another one I asked the folks I interviewed with considering is on the same bit of property and they were familiar with it. I've also reached out to a coupby bdwestfall - General/Relocating
Thanks for the info, was planning on a one year lease since the initial payments and deposit will probably wipe me out. It'll take that long to build deposits back up. I kind of figured that the folks who I'm interviewing for would be able to help me find something decent. Already found some that look ok on craigslist and have been reaching out to real estate brokers.by bdwestfall - General/Relocating
My apt is usually between 900-1100 for a two bedroom plus utilities. Usually stay in avg to higher end apts. I have a big screen tv and usually get the HD channels, but won't be bringing that with me so should save a good 100 bucks or more there. I'm hoping to be more outdoorsy there. I have my dive instructor license to plan to do a lot of diving. Hopefully won't be much time for that. Asby bdwestfall - General/Relocating
Thanks for the info. It is a well established fairly high profile company on the island so If get an offer I would think it's pretty reliable.by bdwestfall - General/Relocating
Thanks for the info it really helps. I'm thinking the hardest part will be finding the right apartment.by bdwestfall - General/Relocating
What are some good questions to ask about living locally. The gentlemen I'm interviewing with has lived there for 10 years. Also, I'm assuming it'll be easier to move if you already have a secured job, but what is a good salary so that you can live comfortably without feeling like you're just getting buy. Living in paradise is one thing, but if you can't make ends meet it's not going to be tooby bdwestfall - General/Relocating
