I had to change carriers
I have been with BOOST for almost 5 years. I have dealt with not having service out at my families home all this time. My parents and sisters are on SPRINT and my sister has a box from SPRINT that hooks to the internet and keeps her from the 'roaming' mode, it's some sort of signal booster. But it didn't help any of my BOOST phones at all, no service at all for me out there.
My room mate is with VERIZON and had an old DROID X that I activated on PagePLUS, which allows me to have service pretty much where ever I go. I opted for the $39.99 plan.
I am sorry I had to change as I have been pretty much happy with BOOST.
I now have a WARP that will sit and collect dust. I shall still read the forum here as I remain interested although I have not contributed, I was just a WARP user and I really liked my WARP
