Which Mobile Phone Service for TransAM?
« on: March 19, 2009, 09:31:33 am »
hi everybody,

i'm from Germany and i'm going to cycle the transamerica this year (E-W).

I am well aware that mobile phone coverage can be quite spotty in the countryside. still, I'd like to purchase a prepaid card - can you recommend a particular carrier that would provide good or reasonable coverage for that trip? I don't need to be reachable 24/7, but once in a while would be nice.

THANKS for any recommondations/suggestions/other help...

One possibility is TracFone:  http://www.tracfone.com/phones.jsp?task=phones&subTask=allPhones

I used it on my TransAm back a couple of years ago and found the coverage quite good, as they had contract services with a number of service providers. You may want to run a web search for other prepays, as some of the majors now provide them, including some of the internationals. Good journey.
