    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
    Not a bad idea, Bill. I assume you make calls and text over Facebook Messenger and/or Whatsapp when you can?

    I will investigate a global plan.

    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.
    So your phone is unlocked and you have a Claro sim card in it?

    8gigs is good. The 350 minutes would not come close to working for me.

    Yes, that is correct. And you can get more minutes if you pay more. Most of the people I call use Claro, so what I have is fine.

    What is wrong with Orange that they can't roll on 4G on the North Coast ? Heck 5G is being tested now for possible deployment for Orange in Europe and T-Mobile already has it testing in some small parts of US markets. The 1st carrier that can get 4G everywhere is going to win everyone's business.
    And Claro post-paid in Puerto Rico, without contract is $40 for 10GB of data, unlimited text and calls within Puerto Rico & 100 minutes of long distance to US. Same parent company - why is the DR such a rip off ?

    AT&T international or global plans are all geared for vacationers. The plans are all monthly. $40.00 per month. So not really a long term solution.
