I'm looking for a pre-paid android phone at a reasonable price (looking at the lower-end Androids since I'm new to them and I don't want to spend more than $200-$250). The only problem is that I have no signal in my apartment when it comes to Sprint/Spring-tower based carriers. AT&T Go Phones charge you extra monthly for a data package and I'd rather not spend more than $50/month. Help? [more inside]

US resident here who has traveled extensively to Europe...pre 1990. Haven't been back since and will likely need to travel to Europe at least 2 times for > 1 week each trip in the coming year. Might be as many as four trips. Back in the day, one's only contact with home was via landline/long distance calling cards etc.. Now there are cellphones, computers, wifi, skype, and the need for on the go data. To be clear, I need to be as nearly plugged into the "grid" as I am while at home. What are modern day US-to-Europe travelling hacks, particularly in regards to staying plugged in? [more inside]

I am signed up for an AT&T Premier account through a family member. They get the bill, I pay them, they pay AT&T - though there's a huge run-around of waiting for them to tell me the amount, getting the money to them, waiting for them to pay the bill. The family member tells me that the discount is only in effect if everything on the account stays the same. Really? I figure that I can change the name and/or billing address (so that the bill comes directly to me) and nothing happens, as long as the email stays authenticated. Or am I mistaken?

Do cell phone signal boosters like this one from Radio Shack actually work? Apparently an external antenna is mounted outside your home, and this is connected to a "desktop amplifier." In most rooms in my house, I'm riding with a single bar of signal (thank you, AT&T). If this can help, I'm all in. Does anyone have any experience with one of these?
