    I have S7, T-mobile gave me the unlock code, I use it with Orange. I had an HTC with At&T and I had it unlocked in DR for about 1000 pesos, used it with both Claro and Orange.

    There is no way my Mother can handle anything other than dialing 11 digits on her landline phone. She like others could not cope with downloading apps, updating an OS, privacy issues etc. I don't believe in using google services as that company is one of the evil 10.

    For some, your solution is indeed workable. I rely on my phone to be able to summon help should I need it when out and about and ATVing in the campo. I can't always assume I'll have a cell signal, but I am usually able to find one or the other. An cell signal being available in more places than free wifi of a quality high enough to support good voice communications.

    What about a Global plan w/ AT&T to get your feet wet ?

    I use T-Mobile Global and it's the same as buying minutes from CLARO

    About 20 cents a minute.... I use wi-fi for most calling

    I have what is known as a Claro International Plan. This is a new plan where all roaming including Data is free in the US, all of North America, most of Latin America, and parts of Europe. In other words I use the phone in Miami the same as if I was in the DR. Also all Claro to Claro calls are free. They do not come off your minutes.

    So if you are in the US for example and call someone in the DR that has a Claro cell the call is free.

    i have had this plan only since July and have never been billed for any roaming.
