    Good suggestions. The Nexus 6 supports band 12 and the latest LTE bands from all of the major carriers, the 5 does not. I would pass on Tmo/Metro prepaid because of the lack of roaming where the OP...

    To clarify, Tmo's band 12 network will only work in the Eastern UP (and the entire LP) when it is up. You get 50MB of data roaming (unlimited voice/text with Simple choice), and you are roaming just...

    The wifi version of that tablet costs $170 at costco. Don't forget you pay all sorts of taxes and fees too, so you would be better off just buying a tablet. Tmobile gives 200Mb free per month too.

    $586-$646
