TMobil in Oakridge
If you are a T-Mobil customer frustrated with lack of coverage in Oakridge, contact them and make a request for coverage.
Short story: I am up to my waist in TMobil and I'll be dancing with the date I brung. I know other service providers have coverage in OROR, so I got on the horn with mine to see what the prospects were. What TMobil lacks in coverage, they make up for in charming southern belles named Angela to patiently answer my questions and make reasonable suggestions.
Frequenting Oakridge from Portland as much as I can get away with, I want coverage while in the area and I'm sure there are others suffering along with TMobil that are jealous when their pals have coverage through other providers. Not to mention that with big events like the Cascade Cream Puff and Mountain Bike Oregon lots of folks from out of town and out of state will be out of luck and won't be able to send phone pics of smiling exhausted faces with their new finishers hats.
Among Angela's helpful suggestions was to put in a request for service. The engineers weigh their priorities of where to apply coverage based on demand. Who knows, if they get enough people squeeking about coverage in some old logging town in Oregon, we just might get coverage in time for August MBO.

I love Spam, either mixed in with scrambled eggs and veggies, or as a BLT (the "B" being replaced by spam), or diced up in my favorite Mac and Cheese!
That's good eatin'!
So let me get this straight.... you can't get annoying calls or emails while out riding sweet single track? I fail to see the problem.... unless of course you are injured, but that's why you have a riding buddy.
That's still a little crooked.

I live ijn Portland so when I ride OROR it's usually at least an over-nighter. This weekend it will be four days and three nights at Mountain Bike Oregon and having occasional contact with the wife and three kids is the primary reason.
It's a long-term goal though, hence the spam
Leave a mint on my pillow and you can use my miserable Sprint phone at Greenwaters, or on Tire Mt, or Winberry.
The Pony Express stops in Oakridge every day except Sunday.
Verizon Rocks! I get great coverage throughout Oakridge, and free calls on weekends, so come find me in the beeer garden.

Nah, I think folks with zero sense of humor or trail etiquette are a bit more annoying than doods on phones while on trail...emoticons are a close second though.
Not to mention folks who respond to posts without reading them through.

I like mine over rice with Caravelle sauce and a fried egg on the side.
