Eh, it's not really great. My grandparent's have it, and I'm pretty sure it has the same number as someone's cell phone, because sometimes it connects to some guy named Craig's voicemail. For a while I thought I was just dialing the wrong number, but my cellphone told me I wasn't, and my cousin had similar problems. The few times I've actually used it, the service and stuff was okay, I guess. It sound of sorts like when I'm on my cell phone in a place with shotty reception. I still say you try it out, because it might work better for you, but don't expect miracles.
