Is there any 3g coverage in AK?
Hmm. I will be south of ANC. Verizons map shows digital svc pretty much in the whole area I will be...although I'm sure it will be spotty.In anchorage yes you have 3g. Otherwise no.
Anywhere north of anchorage you will be roaming on a company called mta wireless. Its a pain in the ass.
Call them today to make sure you are added to their acceptable roaming list. Or you wont be able to call out.
I ran into that problem last year
No no roaming charges once it was fixed with MTA.Hmm. I will be south of ANC. Verizons map shows digital svc pretty much in the whole area I will be...although I'm sure it will be spotty.
Did you get charged roaming charges? I'm on the nationwide plan and wasnt sure if Alaska was included.
I just talked to my son.I'm just not gonna worry about it. I need to stay off the phone anyway.....
If you can, try to sit on the right side of the plane out of Seattle.Thanks Rick. I've been telling my Dad about all the tips you have given me. BTW.....sitting in the terminal in Houston enjoying a beverage . Vacation has begun.
