moving.. service, # 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 ...
We can get you a # that is not local but in the general vicinity; ohio valley, indiana, illinois...you will have excellent service though since you will always be on either the Nextel or Nextel Partners network.
The Dispatch(PTT, DC, WalkieTalkie) service is very strong in this market, as I'm sure your aware.
And finally ...Yes, we will be happy to change your # when and if you stay or go...sometimes the Market transfer can take up to 2-3 days but you won't lose service till the last minute and when you call us from a landline we walk you through a Master Reset, give you your new cell # and Alert Number...finito !
Man...be careful with your pu...
I'll let you know how it goes next week or so (home for holiday this wk)
Again, thank you!
