Cellular telephone services

Don't expect to depend on your cell phone in the Big Sur region. With the exception of the Big Sur Valley area, I have found cellular phone service along the Big Sur coastline to be spotty to non-existent. I found service to be acceptable from Andrew Molera State Park south through the valley of the Big Sur River, and excellent on Highway 1 at the Post Ranch and Ventana vicinity. With a different device and a different provider, you may have results that differ from mine.
