    Anyone know if the islands support CDMA or just GSM? Specifically St. Lucia.

    Outside of the US and Canada it is pretty much a GSM world.

    I was just in St. Lucia (at Sandals Regency - Great Place!) last August and my CDMA VZW phone did not work. Plan ahead with calling cards as well. I called collect back to the states - talked for 5 minutes and the charge was $40.00.

    Nope. Puerto Rico.................yes. St. Lucia, St. Barths, St. Marteen, ........................no. This is why I am thinking of switching to GSM. But sprint's data plan has got me hooked.

    There is full CDMA support in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands; (I believe) only GSM support in the rest of the Caribbean.

    Check the Sprint site for international coverage; they have a map.

    This is quite correct, any "U.S. Islands" may have CDMA but the french, british, dutch, etc. are going to be GSM.

    I'm from Grenada (southern caribbean). There's the old analog CDMA or whatever it is still supported by cable and wireless on most of the islands. So if i travel with my old Startac I get coverage (every expensive).. but since the Treo doesn't do Analog, it's useless down there.

    Data works too?? How is this possible? There's no CDMA data roaming in the US, so I can't imagine it would work overseas either - unless Sprint has towers there....

    I'm from Trinidad and Tobago. It's a GSM world here (although the TDMA network is still being supported) and in most of the islands... and really for the rest of the world...

    Yes, there is Sprint coverage in Puerto Rico. I enjoy full services without any roaming when I go there in many areas.

    I was in Jamaica in January and was able to get a signal with my Sprint phone. I was roaming, but it was on another CDMA carrier whose name I cannot remember.

    I've gotten great Sprint service (no roaming) including data in St. Thomas.

    I'm going on a cruise to the Eastern Caribbean in a few months, and I'll be bringing my Sprint Treo 650, so we'll see if it works. I'll be in St. Maarten and St. Thomas and one more island I can't remember the name of.

    What about Mexico ?
    Going to be in the Riviera Maya area.....

    I was able to get a signal in Mexico back in 2003. I didn't use my phone, though. At least you know you should be able to get a CDMA signal there.
