Coverage in out of network areas PlatinumTel
After ~ 6 or 7 years I lost my phone. I'm interested in Pay as you Go from Platinum Tel. But they don't list service in an area I transit frequently, (towns of Enumclaw and Crystal Mountain, Washington, zip 98022). Platinum says they use Sprint. My old phone was Verizon which worked great in this area. Platinum Customer Service simply parrots the website; "no service" . Sprint's own web site shows coverage in and around the town of Enumclaw, which will be good enough for me if I have to.
Question 1: Will/can Platinum's service "roam on to" the Verizon network to provide me me with its superior coverage in this area? I don't care if there is a reasonable roaming fee.
Question 2: Enumclaw is a pretty significant town, ~5000 souls, and is growing fast as a bedroom community for Seattle and its suburbs. I find it hard to believe that a major player does not cover there. BTW 98022 is a big zip code area because it encompasses dozens, maybe hundreds of square miles of roadless forest and mountain terrain so this may be why Platinum says it offers no coverage. Do you think there is a chance that there really is coverage in this town despite what Platinum's website says? Platinum's customer service (real live person) said that there is no way for her to say whether or not Platinum will cover in this area around Enumclaw.
Thanks for your opinion on my two questions or advice as to where I can find the answers.
