Cell Phone Service

Have not been able to get Verizon service the last two times at the Cabin. Has anyone else had trouble in the Belltown area of Millstone Township, Elk County? Never had trouble before in six years.

Re: Cell Phone Service

Dial *228 from your phone next time you're there and "update your roaming capabilities." That usually helps me when I can't get service where I used to.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Re: Cell Phone Service

I don't get reception at camp. I have to go on top of the mountain for my phone to work.

Re: Cell Phone Service

Does dialing 228 work for ATT. I am on top of the mountain in the Tionesta area and still can get no reception. Some folks who have Verizon seem to get better reception. Or any other suggestions for ATT would be appreciated.

Re: Cell Phone Service

No cell service at camp .....so what's the problem ?
Kinda why you are at camp.
Seriously 'tho , kinda wish we didn't get it but I admit it is good to pick up Steeler n Penn State games on radio. ( don't think I have to worry 'bout Pens games this year )

Carve your successes in stone ,
Leave your failures in the sand.

Re: Cell Phone Service

The reason I would like cell service is I have some health problems and it would be a couple hours to get help. A man got injured at a camp by me during a storm this summer, by the time they were able to find a place to call for help, it was over 2 hrs before help finally arrived. Me and the wife are old school, we only bought the phone for emergencies, we usually use less than 10 minutes of talk time on it a year. I have no TV at camp either. I like the good old days. This young generation can't go 2 minutes without checking text or emails.

Where is your camp in that area? Friends and I were camping along river road this weekend. You may of drove past us. But we have never got cell service in that area.
