Cheap cell for vacation

Planless cell phone coverage: I am going to be travelling to the Eastern Shore of Maryland (specifically, Kent County) in a couple of weeks and would like to get a cheap disposable cell phone just for the trip.

Staples has a T-mobile for $100 with $50 off and a $30 rebate, but it doesn't look like the coverage is all that good. Virgin and Tracfone seem to show the same coverage as T-mobile, but lots of people in the area have cells (I called a buddy and asked what phone he has, it was a Verizon). Anyone had experience in Rock Hall, Chestertown or Kennedyville, MD? I don't know how coverage works, are there agreements between companies to share towers, or does everyone have to build their own?
