We've only been out twice this season. We tried to use wi-fi at a CG in Leavenworth, WA, but were too far away from their antenna. We walked down to the lower part of the CG and sat at a picnic table and were able to access.
We're not dependent on internet, as we tend to do short trips (less than a week), and can catch up once we get home again. Next season, we anticipate being away for longer periods so wi-fi may become more important.
We don't have a smart-phone. IMO, a phone is something you call people with. It's NOT a miniature computer!
