Verizon cell coverage?
Do verizon phones work there? STX I searched the past post and found no results.
The phones work but VZ doesn't offer service here so you will be roaming. Whether that entails fees or not is probably dependent on your plan. Choice wireless has a deal where you can roam their phones on Verizon in the states so the deal may now be recipricol but since I'm a customer of neither (I use Sprint) I can't say for certain.
Long term if you are going to live here you will want to switch to either AT&T or Sprint most likely.
I know for my Verizon roaming down here on STT when I first moved down, voice was roaming at $2.00 per minute, while data was non-roaming.
That was a few months ago.
Verizon does work in STX and pretty good coverage. But expensive----Verizon charged me roaming and for text message despite my unlimited plan for calling and text. Total $1,000 extra charges for month of Nov 2009 despite Verizon rep. telling me as long as I received the call, I wouldn't be charged.
After getting the bill, I contacted Verizon to dispute. Has the Verizon store Representative name and date I visited for information prior to coming to STX. It didn't matter, Verizon told me the person made an error and it was my responsibility, as it is in the fine-print of the contract. Verizon did offer to credit me $500 of $1000 of charges and prorated the other $50 dollars a month.
I dropped it and still fighting Verizon to credit my old account .
Your best bet in buy one of the ATT go phones at Radio shack, Best But, etc....Usually like $20 bucks(no contract), and get unlimited talk and text for $60 for a month while your in the Virgin Islands---total of $80 . And in my opinion and many other , ATT is the best service in STX.
