Cell phones on LOW

13 posts in this topic

Which providers work on the big pond? All I know is that my ATT didn't work last year.

anyfishwilldo can’t help you on the cell phone. I like your avatar. My dad is 93 years young and he belonged or is still is to the 49rs for years! All the benefits that help on medicine and DR appointments are a must now days! smile.gif

Midwest wireless now Alltel has worked good. I've been going to LOW for about the last 6 years and always had cell coverage.

For the past 8 years I have used Cell 2000 which is now Verizon and have never had a problem when calling or recieving. this has worked good whether in the cabin or 25 miles up the lake. good luck and hang on. Bill

I was shocked that my sprint phone worked everywhere I was on LOW. Usually that thing is worthless. Cuts out every time I walk into a store but works in the middle of nowhere, go figure...

Have verizon and get OK service in the Pine Island, Morris Point and Zipple areas but if you get over towards Long Point, it gets iffy, with no service on shore.

I have Verzion and it works all over the lake, even inside my aluminum fish house. When I'm out as far as the Angle, I still have good coverage. I was with AT&T, it didn't do so well inside the house at Wheelers, but now I have good signal in every room and with the digital signal system, the battery will last for a couple of days instead of just 8 hours..

Last time I was up there the nextel stoped working just north of Grand Rapids. Verison works out there I do know that.

When in doubt, Sat. Phone. that will always work. wink.gif

Rocky,

Sorry my T-mobile did not work on LOW. I also have verizen and that worked very well in zippel bay.

Got a Midwest Wireless (now Alltel) phone for three years just for LOW and Upper Red. It works but will come in and out at times. From that phone I can check my T-Mobile messages which only worked once at Zippel on land atop the sleeper house clearing snow off it.

My Uncle had an ATT&T phone work great up there last year and the year before. If your phone isn't CDMA your coverage is limited. Got an older Motorola phone off Ebay recently and it's not CDMA and won't work past I35 much.

      I see on the cam that Joe's gate is open, but the access is pretty trashed with cones out front. Is it still driveable?

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.
