    Don't expect any service through T-Mobile. AT&T and Verizon have kinda spotty 3G. Not too sure about Sprint. It's also a matter of the tower maybe being overloaded.

    My carrier is sprint and I had service last year. The greater issue for me was keeping my phone charged, but I did not use the charging vendor and I think I will this year.

    I have Verizon, and it was pretty spotty. I could call home to the hubby, but trying to contact others on the mountain was iffy. We'd all get texts and messages like 2 hours after they were sent and stuff like that. Constantly searching for a signal will really kill your battery, too.
    I definitely suggest having a back up plan for finding lost friends. i.e. Meet at the piano before such and such.

    Well, first problem is "connected with reality". No reality here, just the mountain.

    Seriously, the signal can be awesome and terrible in a matter of minutes, for no real reason. If you must, turn your phone off except for specified "check in" times and cross your fingers its a great signal time, when its time to check in, set schedule, etc.

    I end up not using my phone most of the weekend and leave it on the car charger over-nite.

    Good luck!

    Although actual texts and calls are difficult at times, if you have an app like voxer, it works quickly and easily because it is transferring info via the internet, not phone lines

    I had great service in West Woods with Verizon. I never brought my phone into the festival though so I can't help you there.

    So. No more alone talk. We must band together. We will triumph. All for WAKA and WAKA for all.
