Thread: Cell phones work @ coachella

  1. #1

    Default Cell phones work @ coachella

    Do people usually get service at the venue? I recall someone saying that their cell phones were all out of range once inside. I dont see how , but just wondering.

    They'll probably work on Thurs. Good luck the rest of the weekend. Delayed responses.
    At some point in time a man switches from "I'll have what he's having" to "I'll have what I'm having."

    Are you referring to the updates you subscribe to or in general?

    You would think that since were right next to a city it wouldnt be impossible.
    But for some reason its difficult.
    Is it really because the lines jam up?

    Of all the places for reception not to be good its inside the venue. What are the odds that one spot is horrible but outside the venue its fine. And yeah it will be tough since like 60,000 cell phones are going to be used in the same general area. Get walkie talkies.

    Unless its an expensive Walkie Talkie, it will suck.

    We did that in 05, and the reception was crap. Plus you get maaaaad cross-chatter from idiotic kids that think theyre funny.

    there's good reception but not reliable prolly b/c too many users in a concentrated area.

    if i can send/receive texts i think that'll be fine. just wondering if people had a lot of trouble last year sending texts.

    i was thinking of setting up meeting places and times, as a just in case. or maybe we can play "where's waldo" type of game and see who can find me among the throngs of concert goers. First, to find me wins 100 bucks!

    Kind of, but yeah texts should be alright I guess. Just hope they are not delayed. The easiest one is "Meet me at the Tessla Coil".

    Yeah, we tried that one last year. Problem is that theres a huge circumference to the ring that thing is in. Not quite a pinpoint location.

    Texts generally work for me. Maybe a little delayed, but no biggie.

    I've been able to place a few calls, but they are usually dropped. I have t mobile and will have perfect reception..just too many people jamming the lines. Texts work..but as others have said they are delayed. Last year we tried walkie talkies and our signal kept getting crossed with others so they were useless.

    Best bet is to try to pick a spot in advance to meet up with friends.
