Default Verizon cell in Bahamas

Okay maybe someone can answer this question for me. My verizon rep. told me that I would not have service in the Bahamas but I thought I had read somewhere on the boards that someone did have service. I am on the American choice plan. Anyone know the answer to this.

No you will not have service in the Bahamas. We lost our service about an hour or so after we left Port Canaveral. We have Verizon and the America's Choice plan also.

The bahamas is on a different technology than VZ wireless. You would need to rent an international cell phone from vz.

We didn't have Verizon service in the Bahamas or Cozumel. Heard Verizon's America's choice serves San Juan though, but not St. Thomas...........Just a hint, someone told us that in Mexico (and probably Bahamas too), the young people are "into" cloning cell phones............I wouldn't take a chance........

Been to the Bahamas many times on private vessels. I can tell you you cannot tell if your phone will work until you get their. It does not matter who your provider is. The only one that works is Batelco.
