    Verizon--->Verizon only took a few minutes. Verizon--->AT&T took like 3 hours

    Yeah, it's impossible to meet people without coverage. It's just like back in 1985 when people were unable to find each other, ever. Without a constant source to connect you to everyone else, things could get pretty bleak. You can see old footage of this. Apparently, people would just wander around aimlessly hoping to find someone familiar. Sometimes their journeys would be fruitless and they would just curl up into the fetal position and die. It was so tragic. Millions of lives lost in previous music festivals.

    Thank God that (eventually) all of our cells phones start working again. We are able to avert so much tragedy because of our life essential cell phones.

    I have Qwest (which uses Sprint's network) and had no problems even though Qwest is phasing out their Wireless in October. Will be switching to AT&T soon to get the iphone, but I will keep this thread in mind.

    I have AT&T and I had no service problems except at the end of the night when everyone was getting out.

    One of my favorite things is the bad coverage. I don't want to be bothered by the outside world when I'm at Coachella and I have a good excuse.

    This was my 4th Coachella, and was the only Coachella where my phone did not work (I have T Mobile).
