    She will have plenty of coverage here, it'll just be on Verizon and/or U.S. Cellular, see my post above yours. She won't want to turn roaming off, if she does that she won't have any coverage, as the CDMA/1x/EVDO signal here is provide by Verizon (850, B Band) and U.S. Cellular (850, A Band).

    Edit-The carriers here are, in terms of coverage quality


    1.U.S. Cellular (850, A Band, CDMA 1X/EVDO)
    2.Verizon (850/1900, B Band, CDMA 1X/EVDO)
    3.AT&T (1900, GSM/GPRS/EDGE/HSPA)
    4.T-Mobile (1900, GSM/GRPS/EDGE)
    5.Metro PCS (1900, CDMA 1X)

    I have an Evo3d and a Virgin mifi. In some places I go I have to use the mifi so that the phone can connect over wifi to get connected. The mifi connects much better than the phone, and both are on the same network.If I had signed up for the Sprint hotspot, it would have been useless to me.Luckaly I got grandfathered in to a $40 unlimited plan, I think it's now $50 and not unlimited.
    Forgot, the Virgin mifi you can just turn it on any month you want, no 2 year contract....

    I just got the Verizon Mifi 2200 since I use it while camping in remote areas. Verizon has the best coverage as far as I can tell and when I used the Virgin one (great when it worked) I lost coverage as soon as I stepped out in to the woods it seemed.

    Well you could get the optimus phone from virgin mobile. Down load a app from the market place that lets you turn on the hotspot in it and get 300 mins and unlimited text ,web and messages for $35 a month.

    Now I have heard they slow you down after 2 gigs but for the price you have to like it.

What will be best, using one of those hotspots or getting a phone that can turn into one?
    I use my htc evo with the thrive and it works with no problem.

    The only issue I have with the HotSpot options out there is they are all metered. Even the ones that say they are unlimited will throuttle your speeds back after you use a certain amount. Read the fine print on them.
