Sprint Cell Phone Use in Hawaii... will my phone work and will there be an extra charge to call the mainland?

Going to Hawaii next week (Big Island and Maui) and am just wondering if I should be able to use my cell phone while there. Would there be extra charges to call back home?

THANKS!

I was able to use my Sprint phone in Maui with no problems--no extra charges unless you're "roaming" in some of the more remote areas. I've not been to the Big Island, so I'm not sure if it will work there.

It will work on the Big Island, more reliably in the Kona area. With Sprint, I learned to save my trip update calls to the mainland for waits at the airport, the reception there was great.
