What do you mean by "even if it is a phone from Jamaica"? Did you obtain it there? The phone you're talking about is a Sprint phone, correct? If so, then yes, you will get charged international rates for calls (see rates below) and texts ($0.20 cents per sent/received text) to Jamaica unless you have an international LD calling or texting plan.
