    Having driven/lived in TN/KY for the last few years, especially in the Upper Cumberland region there are places with no coverage from anything. It's a straight up dead zone. Using Cricket (AT&T) and Page Plus (Verizon) makes no difference. I haven't checked all the various possibilities -- ie. if I go 1 mile down the road, will voice, data, text work on each phone -- but the info is just from standard usage.

    Now I see why the truckers swear by the Att side instead of Verizon. I have a sunrise on the Att side. I pull the sim out and put in a 64GB iPhone 4S. I wanted to get a Verizon phone but now I see I have it better with what I have.

    I think it really depends on where you are. Most phones have coverage on the highways so not sure how much difference that makes. I know in my case (just one person of millions using a phone, so take it for the very small sample that it is), I'm thinking of going back to Verizon since the AT&T coverage is terrible. I get constant dropouts if I'm driving where I had good coverage w/ Verizon. And just being at home is sketchy on AT&T.
