    Cell phone coverage?

    I'm on Sprint. Will I be able to get a signal in Gillette?

    I have Verizon and got good coverage in Gillette. However, here's the coverage map from Sprint's web site. Gillette is marked by the push pin.

    Sprint and Verizon have roaming agreements with each other.

    I have sprint as well and expecting the worst. I will be bringing my handy dandy old tech phone card along, I sure hope that there are a few old tech pay phones on site.

    While at Lake Carmi the phone card was a very good thing to have.

    Isn't that a requirement for site selection? If not it should be (we do not all have cell phones, or even live where one will work--I want one that will work around home tried Qwest, Verison, Attiel, Sprint, Cricket as well as Net 10 and Trac fone---No coverage not even roaming) And yes almost all Pay phones around here are still intact and still work. (we still have a few phone booths left)

    Last year I got a NET 10 phone from Wally world and was told that it would have coverage "everywhere but in the mountains" LYING BASTARDS It had no coverage East of the I on the Colorado plains, no coverage North of Longmont, CO till Cheyenne. Then five miles North of Cheyenne no coverage till Rapid City,SD. Coverage there and in Sturgis but NO COVERAGE out of town and NO COVERAGE on the plains (the flat ass plains no coverage) Sturgis to Faith SD

    But this piece of crap worked good in Denver where you do not need a cell phone, also works on Grand Mesa
