CELL PHONE SERVICE:

Being in a cell phone fringe area we needed an 13 db YAGI antenna that is made by
Wilson Cellular. Also needed was a
DOCK-N-TALK to connect cell service into our house phone system
that has cordless phones. Then Bye, Bye QWEST!

Later we found by visiting Wilson Cellular and entering a zip code that
The Radio Shack in Benson, AZ is a dealer. We went there and he had
what we needed in stock. He has helped many in the Benson area to
install A CELL PHONE SYSTEM.

We have had the above system since July 2006. However as of Nov 2011

Verizon has finally come out with a Home Phone Connect Unit that does this. So have gone with the Verizon Unit as a replacement.

SATELLITE SERVICE:

We ordered it by calling WILDBLUE, but would have been better off
ordering it from a local dealer, e.g. Innsight Internet Services, 168 East
Taylor Lane, Cochise, AZ 85606; 520-384-2772 because they do their
own installations.

Wildblue picked a national company that in turn uses Tucson/Phoenix
sub-contractors for their installations. This arrangement means you have
very little say. These second party installers may attempt to add more
charges, not listen to you etc. Better to deal with a local dealer that does
it all.

If you have any questions, after visiting the internet sites above, feel free
to call me. Tom Beatty Sr.
