moving.. service, # questions.

Greetings everyone, my first time posting in the boost section. Just have a few questions..
I've been working alot (setting up fiber) in the Ashland, KY area but my current cell is thru vzw. Their service here is non existent, seriously.. sometimes my phone can't even display the time up here(?!). I was hoping to just get a prepaid phone, and the majority (read: everyone w/ a cell) uses nextel. I was thinking of getting a boost prepaid since I saw them advertised and it was rather inexpensive, like $50 or so. My question is will I be able to obtain a number local to the area I'm working or will I get stuck with a # local to my home (in Mass) that's long distance for everyone here in KY??

Also, if I find one of these phones at a walmart ...

Boost Billing SCAM

Plenty of news about prepaid lately. Funny how nobody is talking about Boosts 2-way billing policy.

Did you know Boost bills for 6 day of 2-way usage if you use it only 5 days.

Boost begins its billing time at 3:00 pm. That way if you used your 2-way only during business hours, they can charge you for an extra day a week.

Even the customer Reps. at Boost won't give you a straight answer if you ask them why they don't start billing at midnight. They hung up when I asked for a supervisor.

If you use a boost mobile as your work 2-way, you are paying an extra 20% a week.

Also: For 2 years the Text message Rates on all Boost Mobile products have been wrong. Boost claims unlimited e-mail yet charges 10 cents per page sent. Sal...
