My son just changed to Cricket in Alaska recently and says it works well. My daughter tried to port her number to Cricket and was unable to. They also refused her the free phone because the condition was the number had to be ported. So I wasn’t a fan from that point on either. They told her there was a hack, but we discovered you would have to pay fees to the other company to port your number starting an account there, then port it again to Cricket. Like not a cheap way to keep a number.
I need to check into how to use maps off-line, my husband has done that but I haven’t tried it yet. thank you !
All trials is the app my son told me to down load. It is a wealth of information which would be handy to have before a hike. I have only just downloaded that app so don’t know if there is a way to use it off-line.
I haven’t had a chance to try the RootMetrics link yet, but appreciate the link and will soon !
What is a GCI sim card? Honestly, I had to have all of you help me with my new phone. I bought it unlocked, but only just followed the steps lined out for me here. How does that owrk if you put in a different SIM card? I would not be opposed to that.
My phone is the newest one, the Moto G5s plus… The others are the oldest on our list…all about 3 years old. We will have others in our group that have different carriers, and I guess since my Alaska son convinced some of them to switch to Cricket, there are a couple with Cricket phones. I don’t think they will want to stay with Mom (as adult boys) all the time we are there. I like to have confidence in having a phone that works as needed for emergencies while I am not at home. Most places don’t keep land lines either these days and most places for vacationing are in remote areas.
thank you for any help.
