Yes but you will need to get a prepago (prepaid) bb plan from orange or claro which is about 1200 pesos a month ($30) but you can also pay by week
Or day and you will need to unlock the phone to make sure you can use the sim card slot since its verizon.
Also recommend you use claro instead of orange as claro was Verizon in the DR and has much better 3G coverage and speed.
But both offer prepaid bb plans now, also tmobile now offers bb option on their prepaid plans also for additional $10
I live in DR most of the year so if you have anymore questions feel free to ask or send you bbm pin.
Hope that helps
