Anybody using the Verizon international plan in St Lucia, the Grenidines and Gernada? How does it work?

I have used Verizon's daily international plan. It is 10 bucks a day and allows you to use your phone as normal. Used it in the Turks and Caicos last October...worked like a CHARM - cannot have enough praise for it.

If byou have an unlocked phone you can get a local, Digicel, sim for 15-20Ec with 10-15 Ec credit on it. Both countries have an international calling plan that gives you 2 hours of calls to the US, Canada or the UK for 20 EC. The plan is only good for 2 weeks and only in the country the sim was purchased in.

Can anyone provide information on DATA coverage for the St. Lucia - Grenada run? I can do Verizon international, but the coverage map shows 1x service <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/cry.gif" alt="" />
I have an unlocked phone, no problems using a local Sim. Digicel seems limited data wise. Is Lime (now Flow) the best option?

I used Digicel last month in St. Lucia, they have different data plans from 1 day to a month. It's pretty reasonable I think I paid 25 EC for 500 MB good for 2 weeks. You can roam with the data, but since I was only on St. Liucia I'm not sure what the roaming rates are.
I remember seeing a promotion in the Digicel shop that was "no roaming charges in the Caribbean" but that I'm not sure if that included data and you had to opt in on it.
There is free wifi at the Rodney Bay Marina at Café Ole', Boardwalk Bar, Bread Basket to name a few places, so if you're heading straight to the Grenadines you could get a SVG sim to avoid roaming charges. There is a digicel store right near the marina, just north on the main road, could check into it there to see about roaming.

We just returned from sailing from St Lucia to Grenada, Verizon, Sprint and Att international plans all worked great at 3G. Coverage was also excellent for all.

Jccar,
Thanks for the update. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Thumbsup.gif" alt="" /> Good to know. We are heading down in May. Any other tips? Must see - best to avoid?

I'm in Grenada now, Carriacou actually, I got a local sim with 10EC credit, the international calling plan 120 minutes to the US, Canada & UK and a 1 week data plan 600MB for 56EC/ $21 US total, the data plan can be re-upped for 17EC/ $6+ US.
How does that compare with using the international plans from the US servers? If it works out cheaper I might try it myself next time.

Sammy, local Sim is probably cheaper - Verizon is $10/day ( data limit is based on your plan) unless you use a lot of data. What Sim did you get? Digicel or flow? How's the coverage and speed?

I use Digicel, didn't have any problem with coverage on St. Lucia or Grenada, but I was land based. Speeds are pretty good, except for extremely large zip files.
