My daughter will be in the USA for 4-5 months and I am checking into cellphone options for her.
Have done a quick look it seems that the prepaid options are not overly cheap... not if you compare then the the $19 or so data/text/talk packs here.
My queries are
- if you have an telecom XT phone here... could she take it and expect to be able to put in a USA provider SIM and have it work ok over there?
- if she purchased an unlocked phone here (that was from the USA originally) that could worl on any newt work in the States?
- there seem to be half a dozen major networks in the States. Any recommendations as to some being better than others. Where she is going (Montana) it sees that Verizon has decent coverage .. which apparently is not necessarily the cse fgor them all.
- no issues with taking an existing phone and setting it up over there?
Any input appreciated.
