Does Public have a foreign plan that covers the Dominican Republic?
@ronandphyl...if you're only staying for a short time, consider getting a free app like TextNow. You'll have a CDN phone number and you'll be able to send/receive calls and texts for free as long as you have a robust wifi signal. Most resorts, bars and restaurants have good wifi nowadays.
There's other free voip apps but I've used TextNow while travelling abroad and it works good for what I need....and it's FREE !!
