What is the preferred cell phone provider among campers?

I've been with ATT for the past eleven years. I'm considering a switch to US Cellular. It would save me money and I hear their customer service is the best. I am just wondering about coverage in remote areas? There must be a lot of different subscribers out there with comments, anyone care to share?

All carriers have faults, however I have had great luck with Verizon and most customer service experiences have been good. Overall the coverage has been satisfying, so I will stick with Verizon

Well I am in Vermont where any cell service provider has issues due to lack of adequate cell towers (thanks to stringent permit requirements) but I have been on Verizon for over 10 years. Just got the new iPhone 5 with the tethering and now I can connect to the internet even if the campground does not have wi-fi

Does any body remember who Verizon was before it was Verizon, 1997 is when I bought my first cell phone and at that time the service was going from analog to digital, so from 1997 to now I have had the same service and it is Verizon.

I retired from General Telephone in 1996 after 30 years. In 1997 they became Verizon.

We had US Cellular for years and although don't travel much it has performed pretty good as to reception.....we recently switched to a new company: Republic Wireless (our US Cellular was costing us around $170 per month for the 2 of us) & Republic Wireless is going to cost us around $43 per month for the 2 of us....kicker is Republic Wireless is intended to run through Wi-Fi when available and Sprint when not on Wi-Fi....is has a few glitches but is very acceptable with our monthly price savings.
