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.
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!
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.
