Yeah, exactly why I use Verizon. I spend a lot of time way out deep on a bike, kayak, or on foot... when I give that reason, most people respond something like "well, I never do that..." Their loss. That said, I do find a dead spot almost every time I go, though unfortunately won't have time this weekend to go out and test the theory, though need to do it before I rely on the GPS!he funny but good thing is, that is almost impossible to do with Verizon Wireless. And even if Verizon isn't there another services CDMA might work for you.
So, Your job is to head deep into the mountains this weekend and give it a try.
PS: I find it ironic that I can't log in and respond to posts via my droid... I had to wait until I got home to respond to you!
