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.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
