Topic: T-Mobile in Winthrop

I just noticed that my phone isn't working here in Winthrop. It hasn't worked in Twisp or Okanogan for months & months, but no coverage in Winthrop is a new thing. Is that what other T-Mobil people are experiencing?

Re: T-Mobile in Winthrop

T-Mobile was using ATT roaming up until the first of the year when ATT turned it off. Since then, T-M is only transmitted from the tower on Patterson Mtn.

T-M put up a tower last summer on McClure and is supposedly close to starting service there, but it might be tomorrow or it might be November.

T-M is in the process of putting in a tower on Goat Mtn near Pateros, so it'll be a while before service starts there.

If you're a subscriber and get no bars at home, they'll send you a mini-cell device that routes calls over the Internet. Give them a call.

For whatever reason, my phone started working again yesterday. Thank you Paul & William Tell, for the info.
