Relocating to usvi? Then yes at&t as verizon will charge you 1.79 per minute and data as well.

There is a reason you got no straight answers from Verizon about cell coverage in US Virgin Islands. Verizon is not a player & their signal is very spotty plus they charge you high roaming charges for incoming/outgoing calls.

Many of our visitors who use Verizon buy an AT&T go-phone for their vacation.

Why would you want to stick with Verizon? No towers here. No stores here. No reps. This is No Verizon land. AT&T or Sprint.

I am moving in a few weeks from Charlotte, North Carolina to STT. I switched from verizon to ATT. ATT has towers, so does sprint. Also, with ATT you can call mainland to STT and vice versa at no additional charge. Had ATT verify all this last week. Good luck!

Sprint is a JOKE on STX.. AT&T works most places.

not sure if STT is different with sprint.

Sprint works OK on STT but I know many people who've made the switch to AT&T which now seems preferred overall.

AT&T correctly places the USVI within the USA. Verizon considers us International (IE: ludicrous extra fees). I switched myself years ago and found that the AT&T service and signal was even better in NY.
Works great east end STX.
I'll never go back to Verizon.

If you don't need to buy a phone I would go with Cricket. They are now owned by ATT and work from all the same towers. The only difference is the price, about 1/3rd. I was paying $35USD for unlimited voice/messages and 2.5GB data. They offer unlimited data for $65/month.

If you already live in the VI, can you sign up for Cricket? Has anyone succeeded in doing this?

They don't accept VI in the state code when you go to place an order. Because your billing and shipping address have to match the credit card you use (and also they don't accept PO boxes), there seems to be no way for a VI customer to get on board.

Call them? I was still living on the mainland when I signed up but they did accept my billing address change when I moved.

anyone will accept a billing address change-they just want to get paid.
