Arizona Cellular Network Reviews

Observations about cellular carriers in Arizona. This information is gathered from online research, personal experience, and from reports by contributors in the field.

Verizon Wireless dominates the state with the exception of the Native American areas.  AT&T has improved greatly in metro and rural areas and steps ahead of Verizon in a few locations. Sprint gets second place in the state with good urban coverage and coverage in a handful of small towns. TracFone and Straight Talk are available with prepaid in most areas of the state. T-Mobile has very good urban coverage but has somewhat of a roaming disadvantage as their coverage is not as extensive in rural areas. The Native American territories are a special case and, while Cellular One has the most widespread general coverage, Choice Wireless provides a greater amount of high speed broadband coverage. Grand Canyon National Park has some cellular service along the rims of the park but no coverage as you descend into the canyon itself.  Several carriers serve Grand Canyon Village.
