Today has been a frustrating day,
I am planning to take my Samsung S7 phone with me , But trying to get the correct information regarding US sims cards is driving me nuts .
Before I brought this phone, I had long conversations with Samsung UK about being able to use it on a CDMA network. (It is what Verizon use in the US)
They assured me that if it was unlocked and had been used in the UK for at least 48 hours then it should work, I also checked with Samsung USA and they said the same
However, Verizon the network that I was hoping to use say NO!
However, I cannot find anyone to confirm this,
It’s all about coverage as I used AT&T when I hiked the PCT and they were worse than useless. So maybe I will sprint or T-Mobile …. Although I could buy a cheap compatible phone and hot spot it to my current phone ..
Oh well there’s no point worrying now until I fly in …
What else have I been doing , mainly avoiding gear shops.
But I have packed and unpacked my pack, and I am happy with what I am carrying.
I have several extra bits of clothing, which I may shed, when I have a week or two under my belt.
I am planning to take a bounce box , but I am now having reservations
On the Pacific Crest Trail it was a necessity , but that isn’t the case on the AT,
