Like I said in my original post, I haven't found ATT service pretty much anywhere from Canada to Helena. So yeah, ATT is better than Verizon on the CDT.

Is Verizon better than ATT on the CDT. Or does it vary by state or south - north like the AT?  On the PCT I had ATT and my buddy had Verizon.

Agreed, stayed there a couple weeks ago.

Maybe it depends on their mood, but I paid $5 for that same service from them.

In either direction, a few hours away from Rogers Pass, you also can
get cell phone service.  I was going southbound and, at their
suggestion, called them from the top of Green Mountain.  I had 4 bars
3G service (VZW) at the top of Green Mountain.  Louanne said it's
about 3 hours from there to Rogers Pass, but I knew I'd be slower, so
I asked them to meet me in 4 hours.  Kevin said most hikers take
3.5~4.5 hours, so he showed up right about when I showed up.

Although the distances in town are not far, I couldn't believe how
awesome Kevin was - we got to the motel and he knew I wanted some
poweraide, beer, and pizza, so Louanne called in a pizza order for me,
Kevin drove me to the store so I could get drinks and beer, and then
he drove me to the pizza place so I could grab my pizza.  Then he
drove me back to the hotel.  He even offered to drive me to that Jerky
place (can't recall the name, they have a huge variety and you can
sample everything) at the other end of town.

They are awesome.  Plain and simple.

Oh, and they're dog friendly (two of their rooms are pets-allowed, one
$55 and one $60/night).  And we all hung out on their swinging chair
and some other guests came by and made a roaring fire.

Very cool people.

Side note, if you don't want to move far while resting their, right
behind the hotel is a dive bar with a great outdoor deck.  They have a
couple local (Helena) beers on tap, and make a decent (not great)
burger, and they're relatively inexpensive.  And did I mention next
door to 3brs?
