Is the cellular provider "Straight Talk" in the VI?
Wondering if "Straight Talk" is in the VI? Yes, I've done the research on their site but the info is sketchy. Coverage map not zoomable enough to see the VI and they say "no" in their FAQ but sometimes info like that is incorrect cuz old and coverage increases all the time. (ST is thru Wal-Mart and a subsidiary of TracFone) Just hoping. Is ST there? Thanks for your help.
We are on St. John right now and using our straight talk phones. Reception is so-so, but much better than we hoped. I can call the mainland and anyone can call me, but I cannot make a local call here. When I try to make a call I get a message saying that I don't have enough credit to complete the call and to please log into my account. Maybe if I add an international card it might work, but I do not know.
Was just there in Oct 2015 and my Straight Talk iPhone worked just fine. I have a 5S that connects to the AT&T network and had an LTE connection all over St Thomas. Went to Cruz Bay, St John and had good coverage there, but can't say how the coverage was on the rest of the island. Oddly, I had coverage going to West End, Tortola until I got about 100 yards away from the docks at the ferry terminal.
BTW, don't go to Tortola!
The only deficiency was Google Maps. It would show your location and destination, but didn't give any enroute info or audio prompts to turn right, turn left etc
