I am looking to get this phone, but I hate to have dead areas for voice. I initially thought it 4G would work on all lesser signals, but I read somewhere it will only work in 3G & 4G. Just wondering because of issues like at my camp, in a boat, driving rural roads, and overseas when have the latest media on my phone isnt necessary just being able to contact someone in an emergency is. I understand data wouldnt be available. This would make the phone like the ATT iphone service in a way.
