Is there any cell phones that work in the West Elk Wilderness area and Gunnison?

Cell phones work fine in Gunnison, but not in the West Elk Wilderness. MAYBE if you climb some 14 thousand foot peak.

Verizon??

I think that guy on the commercials you know - Can you hear me now? - has never been to those places on the map which don't have a WalMart within 10 miles or a Chili's restaurant. They show it on their website map, and I have proved him wrong too many times to believe any of them now. I do have good service in Gunnison however. Out here on the plains, where it seems like you would have coverage, because there is nothing to block it... yeah... ah no - no cell phone service or dropped when you drive next to a cow pie or fence post. When we cuss out here... you can think of the worst four letter words- and it's not them you hear - instead we just say "VERIZON!!!!" Best of luck up there - with your hunt - I mean!

Thanks, I figure the only phone that would work up there is a satellite phone. Think

We were up there this weekend and my buddy had service on his T-mobile phone in the Red Creek area and another guy had service on Verizon.
