"OP" usually means Original Poster in a message forum.

To a mom, it means "Other People's" as in "OPF", other people's food always tastes better. :-)

Just got back from BVI. Sprint works fine. You'll get US Sprint (no extra charge) service from USVI at West End Tortola and most of Jost Van Dyk. You get Sprint roaming almost everywhere else. (approx $3.49/min) By setting up with Sprint ahead of time, you get cheaper roaming rates.
The charter company should give you a pre-paid local cell phone as well...the plans vary greatly, be sure to ask details.

Cheers,
Hubs

What about wifi around the islands? Is it available at any of bars or other places? Can you get from any of the anchorages?

In BVI this past April.
Verizon was available without gaps in coverage and no extra charges.
WIFI was available; Tortola, Marina Cay, Trellis Bay, Leverick Bay and probably most other places that you may visit.
