I forgot to take out my cell when we were up on Casa Grande last December, but the year before on top of Emory my AT&T phone got a strong signal. As long as you're high enough to see over Pulliam towards Study Butte you should get a signal.

I received a minimal Verizon signal at the bench at the top of the steps by Juniper Flats--enough to send an SMS message. CG should be much better. Verizon usually does pretty badly.

Reading what you wrote,David, kinda gives me dual feelings towards it.

 GOOD, because we can get an opportunity to get communicated with the rest of the world....Bad?, maybe. Because, in the first place, i want to go out there to get away from the world..second, because in the back part of my head i know that i can count on my cell,but then again i donÒ‘t give an opportunity to  see if i can get in and out of any situation i get myself into.

Granted, it's the first reply to this thread, but since I don't go and re-read the entire thread when there are new posts, I thought this sentiment should be reiterated for those who do likewise.
