The last few trips I have made out there, my phone only works for texting. If I try to answer a call, or play a message back, all I hear is garbled mush. Now, in the past the store would set my phone somehow. Now, the $8hr flunkies roaming the store have no clue as to why my phone won't work out there. I've heard everything from my phone is bad, to the carrier doesn't receive out there. I have US Cellular, so if any of you have them, let me know how it works for you when you are out there. Now, I pay roaming charges, so don't tell me the service doesn't "work" out there. That's what roaming means!
