My new hunting/get away spot

After years of looking for the right spot, I just closed on this beautiful 20 acre property in Mineral County, WV. It has electric, a well, and a pretty nice hunting shed on it. It also backs to 800 acres of a wildlife preserve. Unfortunately, I have no cell signal up there. My wife insists on me being reachable and having the ability to reach someone in case of emergency. I am looking at cell signal boosters. I did a tower search online and all of the towers are either AT&T or US Cellular. I have Verizon. If I end up getting the cell signal booster and point the antenna at any of those towers, will my verizon signal be boosted? It may sound like a stupid question to some but before I fork out $400 for it, I want to make sure it will work. Thanks in advance.

Beautiful place! Not sure about the cell booster. I use a Garmin GPSMAP66I for my backcountry adventures. Satellite messaging, SOS button for emergencies and some other features, in addition to navigation. I have the lowest cost messaging plan, as I just use it for SOS functions.

I second the GPS SOS radio.

Your best bet for the money is to buy a pre-paid AT&T Go Phone (you can get a smart phone with GPS etc for $50 at Walmart) and a pre-paid sim card for however many hours you want. Then, turn the sucker off and leave it off until you're ready to head out there, just make sure it's got a full charge before you leave.

AT&T is the way to go in WV. When I run ASP trips there, or go visit family, I have signal when everyone else is dead in the water.

The correct answer is to sell the property to someone who has an AT&T plan.

This. No real reason to drop $400 on a booster if another carrier has coverage in the area.
