My husband and I are going to St Thomas in the Virgin Islands in July for a job interview. I’ve seen several posts, with the latest being that our phones will work there but we could be charged .50 a minute. Is this still correct?
Will we have to do anything to our phones in order for them to work over cell service? Course, over wifi there wouldn’t/shouldn’t be a charge, but wifi could be spotty.
If he takes the job, what changes should he make to his phone in order to continue to be a RW client? He currently uses a Moto E 1st Gen phone on the Talk & Text plan. We haven’t decided if he’ll step into the next generation and a real phone :snicker: However, with the weather being what it is down there, having access to cell service (if its up) and not relying on Wifi signal would be a good thing. If we do this, what phone should he get, and how to avoid the charges every minute if he’d like to call back to the states instead of folks in the states calling him? Or if he’s living there should he leave RW and switch to another carrier?
If anyone’s had experience with taking their phones down there I’d love to hear it. When we went to Alaska last year my daughters phone (a Moto E 2nd Gen) was the only one who could get service for some odd reason and I don’t want to run into another situation like that again.
