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.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
