I bought a new cell phone yesterday to take on my hike. I bought an lg rumor touch off Craigslist for $60. This was a great price since it would have cost me $30 to buy the phone if I signed a new two-year contract. It is worth more than $30 to me to not have to sign a new contract. I have already activated the phone and it is working fine.
The main reason I bought a new phone is so I could check my email on the trail. This phone will work for that although I probably will just be checking my email and not sending and reading a lot of emails. How much coverage I’ll have on the trail is another question. It doesn’t look like Sprint has very good coverage along the trail. Hopefully, I will have coverage often enough to make it worth upgrading my phone.
