I use my phone for everything. We have a bunch of resources available to us that didn't exist a few years ago.This is a little off topic, but do you guys use your phones for calling much while working? I can see using it for directions and that, but not much more. I'd rather not talk on the phone if I can text or use the internet, and I bet there a lot of others out there like me.
Yes, you'll need e phone to talk on. Not all communications in trucking are text based: at Prime we were required to make a voice status call after loading - text was not accepted for this. At times I've needed to call a road service truck to guide him to my location - having a carrier with a comprehensive net is required since many times you need voice capability in Timbuktu.This is a little off topic, but do you guys use your phones for calling much while working?

Never have an issue with either
AccuWeather, hands down.Are there any downloads that make the job easier?
My wife is a full time Rider, so aside from my grown boys, the family is with me, lol. I tote a refrigerator on my back so occasionally I have long wait times the, not too often but it does come with the territory and I try not to roll hours for to Long because I've found I get burnt out if I do, especially if there is a lot of day and night driving switching back and forth. So we do watch movies, TV or I play video games during 34 hour breaks when I'm not polishing or working on the truck. I am otr and stay out usually a minimum of 6 weeks at a time, during the spring to fall I'm out a couple of times for 3 months. That's why I have entertainment in the truck. Not because I'm a truck stop junky, just to be clear, lol. We do stay at a motel occasionally, but mostly the truck is home.Never have an issue with either
But then again, I rarely watch movies. I'm always sleeping during my down time. I reserve the movies for hometime with the family
really you can up your plan to where you get 75 GB of data and that puts you first in line to connect to the interwebs without being throttled unless you go over the 75 GBs along with a 30 GB mobile hotspot option wich is seperate from the data on your phone
