Cell Phone Question
I was in Jamaica back in October via cruise ship. I have Sprint/Nextel. They told me that I could send/receive phone calls if I had correct phone. I purchased correct phone for GSM frequencies. (850,900,1800,1900)Never did work. I am wondering if Digicel has contract with Sprint? Will simply replacing sim card with Digicel sim work? Does phone need to be unlocked? I loved that beach so much I am flying in to CSA!

I have a Sprint phone also. I changed plan to worldwide data just to have service, except that it didn't work. I am still not sure why.

Did you call Sprint before your trip an enable international roaming? According to their map, Sprint has pretty good coverage in Jamaica. Careful of their rates, though.
