We have unlimited data with Srpint but I was curious to hear from other Sprint users:
What to request?
What to avoid?
We will visit Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Freeport.
I used Sprint data on a 3 night Bahamas cruise this past November.
Got service in Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay.
The great thing was we were on the Lido deck quite often and were able to bounce off different towers sailing through the Bahamas and easily access social media and WhatsApp.
But by doing this, my wife forgot to turn on Airplane mode one night, and in an inside cabin, all of her emails and messages downloaded.
I was worried, but I was not charged anything. Checking Sprint’s website, they have taken off the charge for data on certain ships so maybe this is a new thing, they just show overage charges.
Speed was not very fast, 2G, but I really had very little issue posting but you can forget about any real streaming. Signal isn’t great but it does connect and work. Make sure all your roaming is on.
I am cruising in May and was going to call them up for some clarification about cruise ship surfing. Would love to avoid the social media package if I could just use my roaming.
