I wanted to share some experience I have with different phone companies, seeing as a lot of people here end up in various places and it can be a handy tool.

At&t sucks! They will try to rob you over and over and their coverage isn't good either.

Cricket has good prices but bad coverage and worse phones.

Sprint I never tried out in the woods but they didn't try to rob me. Very nice phones.

Verizon is what I have currently and their coverage is amazing and unlimited. Had only a few small spots where I couldn't get service. Now I pay $73 a month but like I said it's unlimited and the phone only cost me $20 total. It's a Samsung Galaxy J3V and it runs smooth.

Just a thought from me to you.

first off, what does the thread title have to do with the content of this thread? your post reads like some kind of weird spam.

not that all phone companies aren't evil in some way or another, but verizon is actively anti-net neutrality, and also shares your location with law enforcement via an open portal that doesn't require any kind of subpoena or warrant. so yeah, fuck them.

Did not know that, Matt. What happens with the companies that offer service through Verizons system?

Didn't know that either but as long as I get service when I'm in the mountains I'm good. I'm not running drugs, I'm camping.

The title is a quote from Mad Max and it's not boring.
that's nice and all, but the next time you use a bullshit title that has nothing to do with the content of your thread i'm going to give you a warning point.

please don't waste our time like this in the future. i've changed your thread title to something more relevant.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌
