We also have poor unusable cell service in our park but excellent wifi. For phoning, just download skype or What's App to your mobile phone. You can then do skype-to-skype calls (free) or skype-to-phone calls (low minute-based fee). I like What's App the best since its connections are encrypted and you can call for free any phone that also has the What's App installed on their mobile.

Using wifi, you can stream TV from the Internet or from services like amazon or Netflix.


or simpler just enable wifi calling from your phone.

I successfully set up wifi calling. Let's see how this works now.

Added: Wifi Calling seems to be working fine. Apparently, this also saves mobile battery since wifi access requires lower transmit signal level since the local wifi access point is near.

yup. the lower your cell phone signal level is the more transmit power your phone needs, the shorter the battery life. So wifi calling with a stronger signal is a win. One downside is if you move out of wifi range call gets dropped if the phone can't switch to a cell tower.
