...we knew it would happen. Last week for several days our Verizon cell phones either didn't work, or they only worked sporadically. At first I thought it was just my phone. But then I heard neighbors saying they were also having trouble getting a signal.
Amy pointed out that one day we had seen a large crane working at the microwave tower. Someone else told me that AT&T was adding a dish to the tower. In the process of installing the new equipment our connections were disrupted. But now, apparently, Ocracoke will have one more cell phone provider.
Just thought our visitors with AT&T would like to know that you can no longer get away from your office when vacationing on Ocracoke (unless you just turn your phones off!).
