I dumped Verizon after some remarkably poor service and switched to T Mobile which I'm pretty happy with. However I've heard their coverage in Mazama is spotty. I'm in Twisp and get 5 bars of 5G.

I've also heard that Consumer Cellular uses the Verizon network (need to verify that), in which case I wouldn't rate it as a good choice either.

T-mobile works pretty good up until weeman bridge, then spotty. BUT, they recently purchased Consumer Cellular which added 2000 more towers to their network. My TMO service in Mazama has been steadily improving since the acquisition. The 2000 added towers ( according to the presser) are primarily in “ rural and underserved areas”. As usual, YMMV

Verizon works pretty well, but be aware Verizon has ZERO 5G coverage in the valley, not even in Omak/Okanogan area. So your 5G phone will only run on 4G.
