We have verizon wireless, I thought i saw somewhere that people had problems with verizon in St John. Can anyone tell me if we will have trouble with our cell phones talking or texting? I know we need to call the owner of the Villa when we land in St Thomas, and when we leave St Thomas on the ferry to go to St John. Any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂
We were on St John at Christmas and Verizon works but there is a good possibility it will pick up a cell tower from BVI and you'll pay roaming charges. We made 5 calls and got hit with roaming charges on all of them (as I recall the extra on the bill was $30). Several of the calls were made on the ferry on the way across. The calls we made from St Thomas were fine. One of our party had an ATT phone and they had no extra charges for the calls they made while on St John. A small price to pay to visit paradise!!!!!
