    Default CLARO, ORANGE, VIVA or TRICOM ?

    I will come in DR for Holidays. Which is the best SIM Card to buy? Not interested in Internet Package , only local calls and if possible International calls. Thanks .

    Depends on where you will be in the D.R.
    Sometimes a certain area is covered better then others.

    Claro is usually the best in my opinion, but they may not have coverage in the area you need.

    For instance: Sabana Igleisa used to have little or no coverage by Claro, but Orange had it covered.

    In the Las Terrenas region, Claro is now the best, as Orange basically crashed & burned for the last couple of years.

    Get a phone with dual sim cards, and have best of all worlds.

    That's what I did. An Android app tells me which signal is strongest.

    BTW: Orange is TriCom now.

    If you will use *it just for calls VIVA has the best price in prepaid service. *So make sure younwill have coverage where you are visitting.

    I'm in the market too. What would it take to get a postpago phone? Bank account? I was going to head over to the office later today.

    I'm looking for a good internet plan as my internet is good for heavy lifting such as downloads, but it stinks for request/response such as surfing web pages.

    Question on Claro: Internet Móvil Postpago 15GB con Bloqueo

    what is Bloqueo? It doesn't sound very appetizing.

    For me Claro has the best speed, sometimes. Has moments where sucks the service. *Bloqueo means Blocked once you reach the total of GB purchased.

    Yeah, my roaming phones all have terrific service on Claro and really stink on Orange. I've figured out how to lock them Claro and I've been happy with the service, but I don't have a large data plan.

    Ah, that makes sense. Is there a way to unblock it? I suppose up the plan. I guess I could monitor it carefully and keep the wifi key private.
