Cell phone in Alaska

Message: Planning a trip to Alaska in mid-August. Driving from Anchorage to Seward, later on Valdez, Fairbanks and Denali. Will appreciate any advice as far as cell phone coverage in these areas.
Thank U

Dan

We were in Homer, Seward, Anchorage and Denali a few weeks ago and coverage seemed to be pretty good in most places. It was surprisingly good in Denali National Park - I thought for sure we'd lose it there. Some places along the road on the Kenai Peninsula were spotty, and it went out a couple of times in Anchorage around the airport, but otherwise I found it pretty reliable. For your reference, my account is with BellSouth. Can't help you with Fairbanks or Valdez though.

Mike,
Thank you for the important information.
I must say I was pleasently surprised.

Just returned and I was everywhere you mentioned but Valdez and the cell worked. My carrier is AT&T

You better check with your carrier. Voicestream had no service from Anchorage to Seward when I was there recently.

From Denali to Seward, we hardly ever had time without service. Calls were very clear too. I'm with Cellular One.
