I have Cingular and it works in US territories (Puerto Rico and USVI) and sometimes in Mexico. I would call Sprint to see where they have service and if your plan will allow roaming in those areas.

I also have Sprint. I tried to use my cell phone from Cozumel. I heard a recording in spanish and since I don't speak spanish I had no idea what it was saying. When we were out to sea I was in roam. I finally got a signal when we go to the base of the Mississippi River on the way to New Orleans. I would check with Sprint directly before you go.

I have sprint, too, and it didn't work in St Martin, but it did in St Thomas (USVI) and Puerto Rico. Generally, they will only work in US Territories.
