I've had OK reception on the Saline road about 1/4 mile from 190, strong reception in Lee Flat, and large dead zones elsewhere on the road. This was a year and more ago with AT&T analog and with people beside me with digitals getting no signal. I finally gave up on c-phones and got a satellite phone for less than $500 and a plan at $20/mo. and $2/min.. I make only occasional short calls so it's economical for me. It needs to see some sky, won't work in a building or metal-bodied car (works great in a fiberglas camper shell) or heavy tree canopy, but it did fine half way up the Lippincott road where it was looking at more canyon wall than sky.
