    Simple Mobile coverage

    My cousin lives in Portland Maine and I'd like to visit at some point. I'm probably going to have burned through the balance on my GoPhone travel SIM by then, and I was thinking on my next US trip I might try Simple Mobile. I've heard their coverage is limited because they can use T-Mobile's network but not their roaming partners.

    Looks to me like patches of Maine (including Portland) are covered, but other parts (e.g. Bar Harbor) are partner coverage. Anything to be aware of, if I plan to visit? I would be likely to also visit Boston and New York on the same trip, travelling by bus or train in between.

    The I-95 corridor you should be fairly well covered, but I'd check the coverage maps to see whether where you're going has coverage. Simple uses the same coverage maps as T-Mobile's native coverage area so keep that in mind. AFAIK there is no roaming on to other networks at all with Simple.
