OT: cell phone coverage in Attica Ind?

As I am getting ready for the trip to Zukimelt I am thinking of getting a cell phone, I see from the maps that
there is coverage most of the way out, My question to anyone who has been there (Badlands park) Is there cell coverage at all? (If its like western Mass the ansewer will be depends on where you stand...) Thanks.

Have been able to use our cell phone in the parking lot with no problems.

Don't know about on the trail as I've never needed to call from out on the trails.

lol, that is a good question. Cell coverage is sporadic both from the Badlands and Summer's campground. At worst though you just have to walk to higher ground.

Cool Then It should be worth getting one. What services are you'all using? Local or national?
The coverage sounds like it is here at home.

Re: OT: cell phone coverage in Attica Ind?

I just got a cell phone before the fabfest for checking in at home. I used Verizon. I was just at attica last weekend and called from the green trail and the dunes to see if it would work and it did. At rangerricks house I had to find a high clearing to call out. I went with them cause it was 20 a month with 1000 free minutes anywhere in my state and it will call from anywhere in the US. So they say.

Verizon was looking the best to me too. I think I am going to go with a prepaid plan for starters, that
way I don't have a steady bill. I just want it for travel and emergancys.

Glenn, I have been with every cell phone plan under the sun, and i ended up with at&t because they have great coverage. I dont know about the badlands personally, but ive called home from just about everywhere when driving across the states. Just my two cents, Max

Nextel will NOT work at Attica, they have some of the worst coverage in the US.

Re: OT: cell phone coverage in Attica Ind?

..........and I thought PRIMECO had the worst coverage in the country,couldn't even get a line in parts of the city let alone out in the sticks,then tried it on the road on time and had to use a credit card to get a line and it cost over 20 bucks for a 2 minute call.I think they went out of bussiness or changed the mane............
