Just got back on Wednesday, May 23. It was a sad, sad, day...

Anyway, just so folks know, we had signals for our verizon cell phones pratically everywhere we went. Even at Anegada we were able to call home from our mooring.

We have a Motorola Razr and a LG EnV.

Do you know if you were roaming, or were you connected through Verizon in the USVI?

We were roaming the majority of the time. My wife remembers be roaming all the time. But, I remember being on the network from White Bay on JVD.

The sad thing is that we rented a Satellite Phone to keep in touch with our kids. Didn't need the thing and roaming was the same price.

Just wondering if anyone has had any luck with remembering the level of cell service they had in the BVI with Verizon.

I am going back next month. Looks like I might need to check-in with the fantasy work world a couple times. Let's face it, the BVI is reality.

Hello from MT. We were down last October and had great coverage all over the BVI with Verizon. Thanks to Walkers great GPS waypoints we were able to chart our way to Anegada with less stress knowing we had solid co ordinances. It is nice to know that you have a GPS back up when you want to sail the old fashion way, with charts!
