Alaska Communications connects native Alaskans and traveling tourists with an impressive array of modern communication devices and elegantly effective smartphones. The [Samsung Messager Touch](http://gr.pn/qhQToq) combines the futuristic surface of a touch screen with a comfortably slide-out qwerty keyboard. The Messager is also equipped with handy shortcuts to social networking sites for quick access to friends’ virtual personas, as well as a camera that captures both snapshots and videos. Along with the phone, you’ll get a month’s worth of unlimited nationwide coverage, which is good for talking, texting, and internet surfing, making it easy to surreptitiously run a background check on first dates to corroborate claims that they really are Prime Minister of New Guinea. Alaska Communications ensures comprehensive [national and statewide coverage](http://gr.pn/mPZKUU) in such remote locations as Denali National Park and North Slope, so lost wanderers can call friends and family to tell them to check out their mile-high, multicolored smoke signals. Since this deal is completely contract- and commitment-free, smart phone owners can choose to continue or terminate their service after one month. Those who discontinue service are free to keep their phone and use it as kitschy jewelry while returning to their football-, hamburger-, and cell-phone-shaped landline telephones. Customer service is available seven days a week, and online bill-pay makes it easy to stay solvent.
