Default Cell Phones and Portland

Anyone out there have any idea who the best cell phone carrier is in the Portland area? I need to have reliable phone access during the show. Nextel does not even work north of Richmond on US 27.

Thanks, Harry and everyone!

I live in the Detroit area and have Verizon. I had no problem using my cell phone in Portland.

My US Cellular phone worked GREAT while I was attending the Portland swap in May. The signal was very strong and it worked better than it does when I'm back home.

Our UK phone works well at the show, pretty sure it is on Cingular when at Portland, but changes from area to area, depending on who has the best signal strength and who our own provider (Vodafone) has a roaming agreement with.

Verizon is the best. No problems and crystal clear.
