    I will be going to Dominican Republic and since my s3 won't work there I wonder if I use the joyn app I at least will be able to text under wifi.


    Thanks

    Been wondering the same thing, taking a trip to Jamaica and if I don't get a S4 by then I'll be using joyn if not the digicel plans are cheap enough down there. Be using an iPhone 4 :afraid:

    Yeah I will test it tomorrow over there fingers crossed now what digicel plan is that? Over there I think there's one cdma carrier but I have never heard of anyone using a metro phone out there

    Not sure how metro implements it but from my understanding as long as you have wifi you can make and receive phone calls using your metro number just as if you had cell signal.

    Thats correct I made 3 calls so far no issues you will need the wifi connection and use the app for some reason text is not working now but calls go through

    That sounds great! Wait does the person you call need to have the app or you could call anyone ? Sorry i ask too many questions but i have an app called viber and it is somewhat restrictive on who you can call and text.

    T mobile does something similar, wifi calling they call it, only phones that are compatible with it will use it though, basically if your cell network is unreachable but wifi connection is calls will go out and come in just fine. This, as is joyn are carrier implemented features so its not like an app on the playstore that may or may not work as intended.

    Yea, I used the joyn app while in Europe, works like a charm :)

    Make sure you install and run the app while in America!!!!!! Otherwise you won't be able to activate it.

    Edit: texting does not work over WiFi though.
