I peeked on your page, MamaMarine2014 & you are saying he is going to ITB. They have more access to their phones at ITB than at MCT.
But I would still let him decide if he wanted you to foot the upgrade or if he is going to get his own.
MamaMarine2014, I would let him set the tone on that one. Especially since you never know where his PDS is going to be. Just sit tight until you have a better feel for what is what.
Well don't know what I should do about the phone then. Don't know if I will see him after SOI, before he goes to his PDS.
MamaMarine2014, You'll probably hear from your Marine about two to three times max while he's at MCT. Once he arrives at MOS, you'll hear more. Once he begin his MOS schooling, you won't hear from him every day as he'll have studying to do, but a wee bit more than MCT.
Just think it's better than boot camp communication ~ that's for sure!
One other item to tell you..... They lose their phones during the week and have a hard time finding a place to plug it in to charge when they do get them back... Mine was at MCT East and they had two (2) outlets available... They had lines like on Family Day at Boot. :(
all carrriers have adequate service at best in the SOI area at Camp Pendleton.
Does anyone know how Sprint's service is in San Diego?
Just don't expect to hear much from him. His phone will not be in his hand as pre-Boot days. And at MCT they lose their phones to insure they are listening to the instructors.
Yes MamaMarine2014, your Marine will be able to take his phone with him to MCT and beyond :-)
