I just had a vacation that had me seriously considering options for Internet access. I have 4 phones on my account. We used to have a mix of CDMA and GSM but now we are all GSM. After this weekend, I think that transition was a mistake.
We spent 4 days at a location we knew had no WiFi, but we were counting on having access to our cell service. Turns out the place was in a dead zone for T-Mobile, but Sprint had a signal. Gah! It was awful being without any communication for 4 days.
I'm investigating ATT and Verizon no contract hotspots, but I would love to just have an option from Ting. Here are some ideas:
1. A dual SIM so I can increase my coverage?
2. A hotspot with two SIMs?
3. A no contract hotspot?
4. A more precise dead zone map. Enter an address and actually see that no, you really won't get access in that location...
I realize this stuff isn't simple/easy.
