Does Sprint Network cover Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands for voice & data coverage without roaming fees?

I will be traveling soon to San Juan,PR and St. Thomas, USVI and have recieved conflicting answers regarding voice and data coverage for these places.  The Sprint map shows that they are on the Sprint Network so voice and data should not be charged as roaming, but others have told me that voice only was no charge, and that there was a roaming charge for data.

Does anyone first hand experience with these locations?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you all for posting. Nationwide Sprint Network provides quality indoor and outdoor coverage for voice and data services while in the U.S.,  Puerto Rico or U.S. Virgin Islands. Hope this helps.

I live in San Juan, I have service with Sprint alhtough I can tell you is not good at all.  Too many issues with voice and data signals.  But you should be able to use it.

I have visited Puerto Rico many times since I have family member that live on the island and also have Sprint. Since 1999 which is when I became a Sprint costumers all plans that include nationwide Sprint coverage include Puerto Rico (all the current plans include Puerto Rico for voice (and data if your plan has data plan) with no extra charge on the Sprint Network). Now if your plan includes roaming you will be able to use roaming in Puerto Rico with no charges. Now as ricktd mention coverage in Puerto Rico does have issues right now since Sprint is upgrading to Network Vision in this market.

I visited San Juan, St Thomas and St John last summer...no extra charges for voice or data.  If you enter a zone where such charges exist (flying over Turks & Caicos), you recieve a text notifing you.

i would hope so seeing as how theyre installing Network Vision down in PR...i believe San Juan was also in the mix of receiving NV as well..so at least those 2 places for sure.
