The times that I've been through Ely, I don't recall any problems with cell coverage.

I have Sprint PCS service and I've attached a map. With such widespread Sprint coverage in the area, I'm surprised that other carriers wouldn't have similar coverage or at least a roaming agreement.

Here's Sprint's coverage map for the area:

Thanks.

There is no native GSM coverage in Ely. There is GSM coverage, but it is roaming off of Alltel's network. Your Italian sim most likely doesnt recognize the Alltel network and doesnt register on it.
