Verizon Wireless IS NOT in Puerto Rico, but AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile ARE in Puerto Rico.

Verizon has service in Puerto Rico, although they do not have stores in Puerto Rico.  Verizon calls, text, and data fall under their Nationwide and More Everything calling plans, so you should not be charged extra for roaming while in PR.  Verizon Wireless stores and towers are not in Puerto Rico, after having sold their towers to Claro in 2007.  However, Puerto Rico does have stores for the US based majors like AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, as well Latin American providers such as Claro, Open Mobile.
