Using this phone in Brazil

azulsfazulsf Posts: 0FreedomPop Newbie
I just purchased this phone and I plan to activate in Brazil. I plan to be in Brazil for 5 months. What are the best plan/options for me? Can I get a local number? What are the rates for me to call another cell phone? Is there a local carrier that can handle this phone? Help!

    @azulsf You will be able to get a local Brazilian phone number for $4.99 a month and it will use your current plan. Be sure to get the 100 minute international plan as well and you shouldn't be charged anything to call a Brazil number.

    In Brazil, your device will function as a WiFi only device and you will not be able to get cellular service from FreedomPop.

    Since the S3 doesn't have a SIM card, you won't be able to use a GSM service provider in Brazil. You could purchase a WiFi hotspot that's unlocked to use there.

    Your out of Luck unless you can find a local Carrier that offers hotspots in brazil. Unless you plan on using in a home that has wifi and you don't plan on using outside of the house.

    No Sprint Cellular data in Brazil

    But I bet you can figure out something
