Hi. 


 


Heading up there again shortly. Would like to track down a local sim that works with my Note5, that has a decent bundle of Data, WITH decent speed and coverage. 


We usually go T-Mobile but coverage has been pretty average in Maui traditionally.


 


Am there a couple of weeks, would really like 2-3GB at least.

johnr: AT&T for coverage

 

 

 

Do you know if there are any Virtual AT&T providers ? AT&T are so hard to deal with!

I only ever roam to the US now, I never buy a local SIM.

You can roam on any network. I don't worry too much about what network a phone uses while roaming, I just leave it on auto so it's always going to have coverage. I'm pretty sure Vodafone's band steering prefers T-Mobile in the US but that's easy to override if you prefer a specific network.

Hmm Ok. I might need a few extra GB however. Are Red Share plans eligible for sharing whilst overseas do you know?
