Although I’m switching to Verizon prepaid I wanted to give my thoughts on Boom Mobile. I’m only switching for convenience of being able to go to a Verizon store if I need to since we’re hopping to travel a bit more now geocaching and more of a potential to break or lose my phone and need a replacement. I also wanted to be able to get they’re roaming too since we would like to cache in the middle of nowhere.
I’ve been using Vonage since December 2002 and have been happy with it. I’ve never had a problem with it. This was the perfect solution for me because I could have a phone number for the Philly area where my family lives so they could call me local and it was cheap for me. I’m worried I’ll have to look for another option soon. Verizon claims that Vonage uses their patented ideas.
