Yep, i signed up first pre paid via the ipad. Got no service in extended area. Spent most of day troubleshooting but still didn't work. The email i received said as well at the bottom "Coverage is NOT available in the Extended 1X/3G Data Coverage Areas or, outside of the United States. "

So, a trip to verizon, a new sim card, and i had to pay extra to activate device. Same priced plans though. I don't plan on deactivating, so stopping and starting and paying activation fees doesn't matter to me.
This did do the trick though. Was roaming off of Bluegrass later that day with 3G.
Will this roam off of LTE when Bluegrass launches? I'd hope so.. That's the whole purpose of their rural program to benefit each other's customers and gets Bluegrass launched faster by using verizon's spectrum. Plus i don't think I'm going to see LTE from AT&T down here anytime soon if at all.
Under the agreement, Verizon Wireless will lease to Bluegrass Cellular its 700 MHz upper C block wireless spectrum in the Bluegrass Cellular service areas where Verizon Wireless has not constructed a network. Using the leased spectrum, Bluegrass Cellular will construct and operate a 4G LTE network in central Kentucky serving Bluegrass Cellular customers, Verizon Wireless customers and customers of other LTE in Rural America participants. In addition, Bluegrass Cellular customers will have access to Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE network throughout the United States.
