Did they open up the roaming? I thought you had to pay for minutes outside the USCC native area?
I decided to take the gamble on the uprepaid deal, bought the Repp at Walmart $129... here is my story...
Called to activate/port from Straight Talk... on hold for 38 minutes then a foreign rep answered, he knew what he was doing but the simple call still took 25min to complete. Issued a temp number said to call back the next day to complete the port.
Called back the next day, hold time was 45 minutes (Fun note the on hold message was touting LTE) this took another 20 minutes to complete the port.
So it works as good as a Rapp will work then last night I went 1x and would not go back 3g. I tried reprogramming, I did a full restore nothing will bring back 3g.
I live an hour from the closest Corporate store so I made the trek today, one way or another it would cost me a hour figured I would do it with a real live US human being.
She fiddled with my account online, pulled my battery, handed it back and said "It's because you are not in your home area" baffled at that response (seeing as how I was in a major city now) I decided she was not going to help me and went home.
So far I am not impressed to say the least. But not shocked or amazed either. One thing about ST is the stuff just worked if you had coverage, but I don't know where to turn without becoming more frustrated.
I asked if I could buy a Galaxy S2 and she said not on this plan I would have plunked down the $400 and taken this POS back. Oh well... prob just go to Page Plus at the end of the month
