Consumer Cellular coverage ?

AARP is offering Consumer Cellular cell phone service for $10.00 a month for basic cell service.

If you use this company, how is the coverage while traveling ?

We live on the west coast, but plan on traveling more in the USA.

We just switched over to them. They use the AT&T network, so I hope to have good coverage! They are about half the price of our previous carrier!

What's up with the phones when you switch providers? I have a droid and DH has apple. We want to switch away, but can't use our phones if we do.
That doesn't seem fair. By the time we buy new phones to switch plans, any savings is taken away by buying new phones.
Anyone know a way around this?

First make sure the new provider uses the same networks that the present one uses.

For example:
GSM Bands:850/900/1800/1900HSPA+
HSPA Bands:850/1900/2100
LTE Bands:2100/2600

Then if compatible, you need to unlock the phones so that they work on any provider. Then you just pop in the new sim card from your new provider into your unlocked phone and Voila!

I can't help with the Apple phone, but my Droid Razr M was free with the two year contract when I bought it at Best Buy. This is my first smart phone so I really can't compare to other smart phones.

Sorry, I couldn't help myself. We don't own a cell phone. you say "What NO cell phone"? Nope, none, not a chance. When we camp I want to get away from civilization. You can call and talk to me when I get home.
Never enough camping!!

For emergencies only that would great. Net 10 has low cost (old) phones with $30 for 60 days & 300 minutes. If you want a smart phone, 300 minutes, unlimited data then Virgin Mobil at $35 per month isn't bad.
