The Good

Big Sky Mobile is great news for Bozeman, MT cell-phone users because it offers service just for Montana residents. There are great options for businesses that need cell service in even the hard-to-reach areas of Montana. Their website includes a lot of information, including the ability to purchase phones, plans, and accessories online. There is also an account management service that offers the ability to keep track of orders, and be up to date on an orders status. They also have a retail store available in Bozeman, MT.

The Bad

In 2011, Big Sky was fined for violating FCC regulations. They also only offer service in the Montana area, and none of their service includes data. Non-emergency calls can only be made while on the Big Sky Mobile Network, so whenever you are out of the area, you will have no service, other than to call 9-1-1. There is also no ability to place international calls, and there is no picture messaging available.

The Bottom Line

If you are looking for a no-frills phone plan in the Bozeman, MT area, this seems to be the way to go. But, because there is only unlimited calling and unlimited texts on these phones, these may not be the best option for someone looking for smartphone capability.

Ease of Use Overall, the website is decent. They don’t have a ton of information available directly on the website, but they provide an email form online, and have customer support available from 12 to 7 pm. Their website is very limited, with sign up available for an account, and the ability to purchase a phone online, but not the ability to purchase a plan online.

 

Customer Support types They have email and phone customer support available. When I contacted customer support through email and phone, they were unable to get to me.
