Greetings fellow Tingers,
Has anyone successfully accessed GSM service in Montana (or other mountain states) through what Ting calls "Partner" coverage?
I can usually get service in Ting's primary areas (dark green on the coverage map), but have NEVER gotten any service in Partner (gray) areas. As I spend a fair amount of time traveling in Montana and Wyoming that means a lot of being with no phone service.
I will upgrade my phone, if that is the problem, but won't wast the money if coverage will be the same. Voice communication is all I need, no internet.
So, my current phone is a 3-yr old, 3G model. If I buy a 4G-capable, will that get me Partner service, or is there some other requirement I need to have? (Need voice only.)
Any help from someone with actual experience appreciated!
Yes, the Ting help folks are usually helpful, but I've never gotten any good information on this question.
