    We would like to get some input on the best company for cell phone coverage at the Yard. When we have been there, AT&T has had "poor to NO" service. Some of the Mids suggested Verizon. Does anyone know how well T-Moblie works?

    Most companies are good everywhere except within Bancroft Hall.

    Within Bancroft Hall, cell phone service is more a function of how thick the solid rock walls are. While service inside rooms is usually poor, it's not a problem to walk to the breezeways for service.

    T-Mobile is fine on the yard. As stated above, Bancroft is a different story. We've had success with a blue tooth and the phone placed on the window sill, and this year our mid has a room with decent reception.

    We were told by my DS's coach that Verizon works the best...fortunately that's what we already had, and haven't had any problems so far! :)

    My Firstie has always had AT&T for 3 1/2 years and hasn't had any problems EXCEPT inside Bancroft. He and his roommates bought a signal amplifier or repeater (non-tech Dad, sorry), placed it near their window and use their cell phones anywhere in their rooms.

    Verizon from Mother B was always good for us.
