    Default Which cell carrier works at CN

    We are repeaters that have always used Nextel/Sprint. They used to not have towers in Jamacia. Does anyone know if its working at now at CN?

    don't know about Nextel/Sprint. Usually their website will show the global map or list of countries. Hopefully others with Sprint can help you better than I.

    I use AT&T and have no problems in JA.

    Don't know about Nextel/Sprint, but we have T-mobile and always use it with no problems at CN. We call and text home to keep in touch. Trip #6 coming up in December!
    Have a Happy Day!

    You need to call Nextel/Sprint and have Jamaica turned on, (International rooming), and have one of the phones listed below. International rooming is turned off by default, blocking you from making a call.

    Per the Nextel site you need one of these phones for it to work:

    Jamaica

    Phone option:
    i2000plus, v60, P280, T720, V505, V555, V180, i920, i930

    Cost: $1.99

    Phone Options indicate the type(s) of phone(s) available for use in the specified country.

    I do know this that Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T do work in Jamaica with International rooming turned on.

    We use Verizon and all we've done is activated International Calling and the phone worked fine; on prior trips we did have text only service (no phone) and had not activated anything. Enjoy paradise

    I have Nextel/Sprint service. In the last couple of visits, I've received a text message with 10 minutes of landing welcoming me to the Caribbean and telling me what the rates are for placing calls back to the U.S.

    I know everything, and I'm always right (just ask my husband).
