Hey, I'm going to be in Big Sky, MT for January 2011 and I want to get a new cell phone before I go, preferably Android-based with a decent camera. Does anyone know if any cell phone carriers cover Big Sky? Thanx.

Which cell phones work in Big Sky (if any)?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Having been to Big Sky numerous times for races, I've found Verizon to have issues at various places on the mountain. There wasn't coverage everywhere and certainly no coverage on the road from Bozeman to Big Sky. The coverage was fine down in the main resort area.
I am an instructor at Big Sky and the service of choice is Verizon. It works well in the Big Sky community but once you head down 191 to Bozeman or up to West Yellowstone there is no service that works from any company. I hope this helps.
Thanks everyone, that helps alot. Basically, both my camera and my cell phone are dying, and since I'm no longer under contract I can switch to whomever I want. I figured since I'll be in Big Sky for a month I should pick something that will work there.
My problem with Alltel comes down to one thing -- the Alltel ads. I HATE their ads. In fact, I hate their ads so much I wouldn't even consider getting their service. I am hopeless when it comes to ads mostly. I don't pay them any attention. I can see an ad 100 times and not know what it's about or even remember it. But the Alltel ads are so annoying the whole family races for the mute button when they come on. It's a successful campaign from one standpoint, I know what the product is for a change. And I refuse to buy it.
I'm excited that Verizon seems to be coming out the winner 'cause I really want a Droid. I've never been a fan of Apple, do not own any of their products, and really don't want to start now, but had been envious of all my friends with iPhones. Will likely wait a couple of months to see if they come out with anything newer/better/cooler/faster before Christmas. I don't plan on talking on the phone on the slopes, just want to be able to call home in the evenings. Do plan to take pictures to post on Facebook. Thanks again for all the feedback, I'll keep checking for further posts and I'll post what phone I finally decide on and how it works when I get there.
So, I ended up keeping my old Sprint Palm Centro (had some unexpected expenses and decided not to get a new phone). It worked everywhere on the mountain, in Town Center and Meadow Village. Friends with other carriers all had the same success.
Oh, and I should mention that Big Sky rocks! Snow was great (several powder days), and working in the slope-side medical clinic with Dr. Daniels was awesome (I saw more orthopedic injuries in one month than in a whole year in a DC emergency room. The one-month elective is available to 4th year medical students and 3rd or 4th year Emergency Medicine/Family Med residents or Sports Medicine Fellows. However, med students need to apply nearly two years in advance, and residents/fellows a year in advance, check out http://www.docsky.us/. Oh, and there is also a job opening as of January 2011 for any family med docs out there.
Thanks for all the input on phones/carriers.
