PagePlus has post-alltel coverage on the map. PagePlus Coverage Map
Looks to be better coverage than ST. PP also allows roaming whereas ST does not. Granted PP roamin is at 59 cents (or is it 57) per minute, but you at least have the roaming coverage available. On ST you do not. When dialing a PP phone in a roaming area you will know you are roaming because you are asked to dial the number a second time. That being said I have been in a certain PP roaming area twice now (making several calls both times) and have had to double dial but did not get charged for roaming.
