When I went out on the lake I didn't think I had service and I have sprint, but I don't think that any of the companies will have service out there but I may be wrong.

Altel works on the South Shore. Not sure if it was roaming though.

I think if you do a search of this forum you will find the answer to your question.

I have T-mobile and verizon. Unfortunately T-mobile was a no go for me. Verizon worked great.

Guess I was wrong about service up there. Sorry about that I know it didn't work for me when I went.

Sprint, Verizon and Unicel works of course. The tower you can see blinking off the NE corner of the lake is a Unicel tower.

thanks for the valuable replys as I do not have alot of time to do a search. I think the other couple we are going with have verizon or sprint so we should be ok.

I think you are correct with the Verizon and Sprint service but I think the crappies switched to T-Mobile a couple years ago-I have been calling them to see where they are at-Getting no answer!!!! LOL

Verizon and Unicel both work as they share towers... And which Verizon has bought Unicel now or is very close to finishing the deal!

Sprint works but I know that it goes into roam mode, well it least last year when I was up there it did. So if you are with Sprint and you don't have free roam watch out for your bill.

The past 3 years I have had service with sprint on Red, sometimes sketchy but service. This summer at Hillmans full service, then it would get worse the further out in the lake I was. But now this winter I had zero service anywhere. I was out Hillmans road, out Rogers road and everywhere in between including waskish. Not sure if it's my new phone, or the bad weather or what. Bottom line no service from sprint for me.

I was able to use Qwest/Sprint 4 1/2 miles out on Hillmans road. I was also able to use my mobile broadband card when we were up. A buddy that was with also had use of his Verizon service.

I went out of the south three weeks ago I have sprint no service for us. I was told at Morts that unicel seems to work good.

      Did very well on sunfish in 6 ft of water in the area over the weekend. Sunday got 3 man limit of all over 8",  1/3 over 9" and a few 10"s. I lost the biggest sunfish I have ever seen, at the hole. Made the 10's look like chips. It was at least an 11" sunfish.

      No open water in Pike Bay. The dam has been flowing almost all winter! There is now an open channel down the center of the Pike river past the dam as far as just past the Hatchery! Saw a couple fish surfacing in the open water the past couple of evenings (suckers??). Have had geese, golden eyes, and a couple of swans in the open water all week. Cliff
