Vini SIM card?

Jump to last reply

We will be traveling to French Polynesia in two weeks. I'd like to be able to check my voicemail and return any urgent calls while away. I currently have an iPhone 6 Plus and I'm on the Sprint network. I can add on an international plan for my travel dates at around $1.60 which would allow me to call back to the USA at $1.99 per minute -- receive texts at $0.05 -- and send texts at $0.50.

Or, I could buy a Vini SIM card upon arrival in Tahiti. My phone is currently unlocked. Does anyone have any idea what it costs per minute to call the USA from French Polynesia with a Vini SIM card? I've gone to the Vini website, but I'm having issues figuring this out since I don't speak/read French. I've also Googled extensively.

I'm not concerned about data as I'll have internet access in our hotels and on our Windstar cruise.

I can also purchase a Vini -- Alcatel One Touch phone with SIM card duty free on Air Tahiti Nui for $25 USD. This comes with 17 minutes of local calling. I'd have to top the SIM off when I get to Tahiti in order to make calls back to the USA.

Many thanks in advance!
