Prepaid Cell Phones
Either that or find a buddy with a tracfone and buy him a 30 minute card and take him along to try it out.
From the way I understand it, Tracfone operates on whatever signal is available.
You might have to go out and walk around a little bit to see if you can pick up a signal. I had to do that a few years ago at a friend's cabin. Now it does not seem to be a problem when we go there.
I have used tracfones for at least 20 years, now I have 2, one to call the kids on and one to receive calls from everybody else. If you decide to go with a better phone, make sure you get one either with the triple minutes or the triple time, minutes and something else. I think with mine 1200 minutes for a years time is about $90. I always get the 450 minutes for 90 days because I have plenty of time I have not used on both phones. Hope this helps.
