      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Best Cell Carrier for OR and WA Cascades?

Recommended Posts

I finished my 2 year contract with T Mobile and looking for another carrier. T-Mobile is non-existent on Mount Hood and forget about Adams but it was really good in the Gorge though. Any recommendations on cell service for Hood/Adams/St Helens?

 

Thanks!

Thanks, Yeah, I did search, but only in the Gear Critic, SW and Oregon cascades boards. They seemed to indicate that AT&T was the better, i.e., the "5 climbers lost on hood" thread..if only I had the cash to get both verizon and at&t/cingular and test them. Now that would be a cool gear test!

All of them suck now that analog is gone.

 

My very first cellphone was clunky and lame but worked all over the Cascades.

 

T-mobile is the only one I hear that is noticeably worse than the rest in the backcountry.

I've got T mobile and have coverage on Mt. Hood (at least on the south and west sides). Maybe its your phone and not the carrier? I use the new google G1 phone.
