Does my current plan include calls and texts between US Mainland and USVI?

I have the New Verizon Large (8GB) plan and will be traveling to St. Thomas and St. John in the US Virgin Islands. There seems to be conflicting information on whether or not calls and texts are included in my plan or require an International Plan. Can anyone clarify the situation?

US Virgin Islands - Domestic

British Virgin Islands - Roaming $1.79/min

You asked about the US Virgin Islands.

US Virgin Islands = St. Croix, St. John, St. Thomas (+ smaller islands)

British Virgin Islands = Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke (+ smaller islands)

US Virgin Islands is considered domestic, so calls, text and data is included.

Why does that PDF list the "Voice - Pay as you go" pricing at $1.79 a minute then?

Apparently a very recent change that it is domestic, but I share your concern until confirmed by someone who has actually travelled there with the conflicting documents.

From Verizon travel planner:

St John

Your device is good to go, just pick a plan.

You can use your domestic talk, text and data in the selected destination(s) at no additional charge.

Thanks Weth.

Based on the TripAdvisor post (which is fairly recent), looks like the doc I was referencing may be out dated. As long as we stay at our hotel (the Westin on the eastern side of St. John), hopefully we won't get a stray signal from the British islands. I suppose if we travel to the northern end of St. John, we will have a higher probability of roaming over to the BVI.
