    Or maybe go with Visible/Verizon at $25 all in party pay rate (4 people get $25 each instead of $40) for unlimited everything? Usual Visible caveats of everything is online including customer...

    Update on Piranha. Apparently incoming voice is working again roaming on AT&T USA. Did a test a few days ago using a Visible phone and a calling card to the Piranha sim in a flip phone. Rang in about...

    Think it's because Visible uses a special flavor of volte that requires compatible firmware on phones and they use a cloud based network, but a more techie person than me could explain it better.

    How about a SkyRoam mifi hockey puck? Can be left dormant when not needed.

    I use an older 3g+ model when visiting Canada, Bermuda or the Cayman islands using day passes.

    They have newer LTE...

    The Cricket solution sound good.

    Just left Mint for Visible a couple of weeks ago for coverage and cost reasons. T-Mo does have better coverage than years ago, but it's not quite as good as their...

    Whether Ting will keep T-Mo after the Dec 19th, 2020 switch over date likely depends on the T-Mo/Sprint merger.

    Think Ting is probably best for people who want a group plan, have light to moderate...

    You may also want to consider a satphone rental if coverage needed aboard ship far from land. Typical networks are InMarSat, Iridium and GlobalStar. Best for talk and text. Not cheap, but would be...

    Wouldn't have wanted to rent the Mobley line so it looks like I did the right thing killing the Mobley line....it served its purpose well.
    Interesting thing is both AT&T and Mint asked questions on...

    On vacation and needed to quickly do the Mint to Visible porting and Mobley cancellation before go back to work tomorrow. Thought of selling or giving away the Mobley plan/device but not worth it to...

    Agree their website is a bit deceptive....they should say "coming soon."

    Currently using Piranha, Skype, SkyRoam and InMarSat for international use.

    Agree, the AT&T connected car vehicle listing seems to have the metered plans more for RVs....car makers seem to still have the unlimited plans available.

    Wound up discontinuing my Mobley plan by...

    Also note that the WF721 can definitely be unlocked (I paid $1.79 on eBay for a code). That would allow a T-Mo sim or a worldwide roaming sim to be used.

    Bb2go current rates in the VM FAQ are $5/day/250 mb, $25/month/1.5 gb, or $55/month/6 GB. That's for 3g or 4g. If someone has an older active plan that is grandfathered, but would change to the...

    It's probably a moot point on Verizon 3g since it will largely be shut down by the end of 2020...they want to refarm spectrum for 4g and 5g.
    Agree Visible is not for everyone (lots of alternatives)...

    A Visible customer in that situation would likely have no cellular service because it's a Verizon LTE based service but calls could still be made using WiFi calling if there was accessible WiFi...

    Piranha worked OK for me last month in Grand Cayman on either Digicel or Flo (aka Lime or Cable & Wireless). It works on AT&T in the US.

    Mint is great for a reasonably priced multi-month prepaid...

    As others have mentioned, the Alcatel MyFlip would be a good LTE flip phone which does have some limited data capabilities. If Verizon has best coverage, just stay with them or one of their resellers...

    Hope not. I use my connected car sim card in a vintage AT&T Liberate mifi device since my Mobley bit the dust a few years ago. No home wired broadband because rural area and far from street...cable...

    Similar to truphone, there is a provider called Piranha which roams on AT&T in the US. You get a free UK cell number on Jersey Telecom. US domestic calls are 6 cents a minute. Other countries vary (I...
