Good Afternoon,
I have an AT&T stateside phone number, and it works great (and NO roaming charges) when I am on STX.
But....I am wondering what other options I have on STX for a stateside phone number that will NOT be roaming when there??
I know Verizon does charge roaming for a stateside number when on STX.
Any other options I can look into (with a stateside number)??
Thank you!!

Looks like one vote in favor of Sprint, and one vote against Sprint!!
Anyone else out there with a stateside number with Sprint on STX??
What's your opinion??
Thank you!!

Service varies depending on location and phone. Most free phones have inferior antennas so service can be limited if you're not close to a tower. With my previous phone, I got signals when my Sprint friends didn't. My current phone doesn't seem to pick up in as many areas though it wasn't a freebie at the time.

Read reviews on signal strength before buying a phone and check tower maps.

My AT&T friends are reluctant to whip out their phones when we need to settle an issue using Google, so all eyes turn to me, and out comes my phone. I'm an information junkie so no way could I stay sane with a data limit.

I have unlimited data on AT&T.

I don't know what plans my friends have, but it drives me crazy that they have "smart phones" and only use them to make calls and take pictures.
