I'm still trying to figure out if you use Verizon or sprint? Or do you have 2 phones? I don't follow. Anyhow.....sorry they don't work well in your area. They're the only carrier that covers me in the desert. Love em. It would be nice if they were cheaper, but it would be nice if everything were cheaper. 10 years and I hot no gripes.....but I'd switch if they didn't cover my area and someone else did AND was cheaper. That's just common sense.
