Boost is OK in some urban areas where there is a Sprint coverage but in rural areas and smaller towns there is little if any coverage. I am vacationing in western South Dakota and there is zero coverage. I have been without cell service for a week. Even the larger towns do not have coverage out here. Same with western North Carolina. Once I cross the border from Georgia there is no coverage. I spend a couple of weeks in the Fall in North Carolina and unless I get into Asheville I have zero coverage. I basically have to resort to email wherever I can find wi-fi. Forget using Google maps for driving directions too. Frustrating because while I have no coverage everyone around me is chatting on their Verizon and AT&T phones. I guess you get what you pay for.
