    Default DR Pre-Paid SIM

    Does anyone know of a way to get a DR SIM card while still in the US? I'm headed down on Nov 2nd and really need to working cell phone number before leaving the US as my pets are leaving the same day as me, but arriving a day later. I know that I can give the airline my Skype number and forward it to another number, but I think it would be better with a local number.

    Buy a US t-mobile and pay the roaming charges until you have a DR SIM card.

    Almost any US cell company phone will work in the DR ... with roaming charges. The best deal may be Sprint, which caps your roaming charges ... I think they have a maximum of $50. You will need to present a passport in the DR in order to buy a SIM card.

    I have T-Mobile and I'll get free data and texts in DR Calls will cost 20c/min

    I'll skype everyone from there (Viber, Voxer, what's up, tango)

    I don't think this is possible unless you know someone that recently returned from the DR and you use theirs.

    Where are you staying? Hotel or resort? Can you use the front desk number? Do you have any friends already there?

    Yup, you're right. There's a place in Atlantic City where you can get Claro SIM cards and buy minutes. Probably available in other areas with a good Dominican population
