    Alternative to Element?

    I have been an Alltel user for many years and have been extremely happy. I had a family plan, paying for my line, a line for my mom, and a line for my dad. I live in WI Rapids; they live in Eau Claire area. WI Rapids is moving to Element; Eau Claire area to Verizon. Would it be possible for me to purchase a family plan through Verizon, continuing to pay for my line, my mom's line, and my dad's line even though I live in WI Rapids (Element Mobile's area)?

    Thanks so much for the guidance!

    As far as regional carriers I'm not sure if you have any options there as Cellcom and US Cellular only have towers in Wisconsin Rapids. Sprint and AT&T both have coverage in those two cities but it really depends on where you go in Wisconsin as traveling and getting good reception may be a problem.

    I'm really not sure how roaming is going to work yet with Verizon and Element Mobile; my guess is that Element Mobile can go on Verizon but Verizon can't go on Element Mobile. If this is the case, then you wouldn't be able to have Verizon as Element would probably kick you off after too much roaming. Can anyone confirm Verizon and Element Mobile roaming yet or is it too early at this point?

    I believe the last poster is correct in that Element Mobile customers will have access to Verizon Towers, but i do not think Verizon will even be allowed to roam on element towers.
