Hey, I am coming over to work at Heavenly on the 9th of December and am thinking of buying a cellphone in San Francisco when I land, I was just wondering if anybody knows what the best cell phone service/coverage is?
I don't know about the "best" coverage but just wanted to report that I had an excellent Sprint signal around the southern area of the lake. I even had Sprint high-speed data coverage up at Heavenly.
I'm thinking that all the carriers have good coverage in the area. With all the roaming agreements in effect these days, I'm not sure if it's that important what carrier you sign up with. Pick the one with the best plan that suit you. I think that would also apply if you're going with a pre-paid plan.
Just spent 3 days at South Lake Tahoe near the intersection of Tahoe Keys & Lake Tahoe Blvd. Verizon 4G was non existent and 3G voice was sporadic. No data coverage at all. I had to drive to the "Y" where I did manage to get 4G data.
i have a verizon and a Att&t both work fantastic. keep in mind, not only is it the service but the actual phone itself. The better the phone the better the service.
