OOOO....Shelby area and cell phone signals/wifi signals don't get along all that well.

I do believe though, don't kill the messenger if I am wrong, but I believe there is a radio shack there in shelby and maybe even a verizon/cellular plus. If not I guess if your hubby doesn't mind a drive he could pop into great falls....I believe that is kinda southeast of Shelby. Be Careful though roads this time of year up there can get pretty nasty!

Radio Shack is long gone, there is still a Verizon here though. Roads are fine and dandy here, highway couldn't be drier. Pamida has no wi-fi stuff either(I work there!). There is a Radio Shack in Conrad an Cut Bank though, so maybe some help there; otherwise Great Falls is your only option.

Get Verizon Wireless Broadband, they cover most of the Hi Line, but will rob you blind.

The library in town should have wifi as well as the Comfort Inn. Here is also a list of other places in town:

If you were looking for repair issues and not just a free wifi spot, then the Radio Shack in Conrad does have an onsite repair person:
