One of it/or both can be dumb question(s), but -
1- How is Verizon cellphone network in Vermont/New Hampshire area ? I been to Alaska and only ATnT leads there, so I am asking, if it same here ?
2- I bought Carol's book on Kindle. Does anybody know, how to put GPS coordinates in google map on iPhone ? For example, how to put this coordinate in iPhone map - N44 10'22"; W72 39'3"
Thanks

Hi Sparks: No question is too dumb on this forum and all are worthy of an answer so continue to ask away!

I have had great luck with AT&T in both areas. But be aware, there are pockets of non reception in both. Some can be for a longer period of time or just transient so be patient. It really depends on the location. I'm sure this holds for Verizon as well. For instance, I usually have no problem with AT&T, but at one of my inns, I have no reception inside and have to stand outside at the horse corral to talk to anyone! I can also lean my head out my room window at the inn to get any reception but that can be cold! :lol: When traveling with friends, one can have reception on Verizon and none on AT&T and vice versa.

Not sure about the GPS coordinates so anyone else can help with the question I'm sure.

I have an iPhone and use Verizon. The network in VT is FAR better than years ago. I get a signal in most areas but there are a few places where the signal is weak and a call might drop. Does not happen a lot like it used to!!
In terms of GPS coordinates, am not sure how to add those to a map in an iPhone. I am sure it's possible, just don't know how so if you figure it out let us know :-)

Verizon has pretty good coverage in most places. There are some rural areas where service is spotty. However, if you are driving around you will usually pick up service again in a few miles. The most annoying and inexplicable Verizon dead zone I know of is Route 2 between West Danville and Montpelier.

As for the IPhone question, I don't own one but I Googled the answer here:
