Going to Boulder Junction and the UP next week and I was wondering what cell phones work up there. Last year my Nextel didn't work. Anybody know what kind does or any kind of temperary phone I can buy that will work?
I've have a trailor in the mobile home park in Boulder Jct. I have AT+T Wireless and a Siemens cell phone with tower search features. It doesn't work in that area. Best I can do is get 1 bar of 5. My friend has US Celluar, same thing, hit or miss 1-2 bars. If just one of the multitude of cell providers would pop up a tower in the area they make a killing on service switch overs.
I went last week and got 1 from Cellular 1 in Marquette free phone and for $30 i got 100 minutes of air time. Used it twice in the middle of no where to call the chase truck for pickups. No one else had a signal i had a full 4 bars!!!!!!!!!!! You can also try Alltel they have great coverage in the UP also.
I have a tracfone from Alltell I use when at my place on the East side of U.P. Works great as long as you leave it on so it can lock onto the closest tower. If you turn it off, it has to search and re-lock, which can take awhile. Plus the benefit of paying only for minutes you use.
