Sounds like an awesome trip jbrimeyer6626! Let’s make sure you can stay in touch while you are traveling. Are you using your Verizon SIM card or have you gotten a SIM card from the local carrier?> Have you checked to ensure roaming is turned on? This is in Settings>Cellular>Roaming>Voice Only is set to ON. What signal and bars is your phone showing?

Data overages are unavoidable. Bahamas cell service is sparse- data is worse. Use app VIBER and pick up a phone and prepaid sim at BTC
