The best thing to do is to get a foreign prepaid SIM card. You can
always forward your existing cellular and home numbers to your foreign
number if you really must be reachable (see the link below for
inexpensive ways to do this). If you are going to multiple countries you
can get a multi-country SIM card before you leave the U.S..

The first thing we did when we got to China last year was to buy four
SIM cards, one for each member of the family. But we were not on an
organized tour or a cruise and we sometimes didn't all want to do the
same thing so we wanted to have phones more for local use than anything.
It was super cheap to make calls and send texts.

Verizon is a little spotty in the western half of the US.
Check their coverage map.
It's dominant where I live.

I just finished an RV trip from way-south Texas through NM, AZ, NV,
CA,OR, WA, MT, ID, WY, CO, KS, OK and back home to TX. I had minimum of
3G and mostly 4G Verizon service everywhere but in one campground north
of Loveland, CO where I had 1X.

I must have hit all the right spots. g

Perhaps you did. I said spotty, not that there was no coverage.
I Had Sprint for about 3 days where I live right after Sprint and Nextel
merged. I had Nextel before the merge. Nextel worked OK until Sprint
took over. I figured the coverage would be the same. Not so, I had to
leave my house and go into an area in my back yard to use Sprint. I left
Sprint and went to Verizon.

Some years ago a Verizon-droid called me and said that the Senior Plan
made sense for me in consideration of my advanced age and low billed
minutes. I was suitably impressed by their proactive recommendation; it
made sense at the time.

My next monthly bill was out of sight because most of my cell phone
time was spent chatting with a very talkative young lady of my
acquaintance, but the Senior Plan did not comp on-network evening and
weekend calls!

My final bill was somewhat reduced due to the service cancellation which
was probably the Verizon objective all along.

This should not surprise anyone! Low population *can* mean spotty
coverage. Believe it or not! Somebody must pay the bills or do without!

Are you commenting on just the campgrounds, or when you say 'everywhere' do
you mean during the entire trip?

I must have hit all the right spots. g


Somebody has to.

Pretty much the entire trip. I use the phone's apps for several things
while we are traveling and we had great coverage. We were not on
Interstates, either. Did a lot of traveling on two lane US highways

outrageously priced though. I don't care much about data when traveling
since there is so much free Wi-Fi available.


Oh bull****. Now you are trolling.
